In the Fool School posted Oct. 6 you defined NAV as follows: "NAV stands for "net asset value" and is the PRICE (my caps) of one share of the fund." I would beg to differ. NAV is the Value of one share of the fund, not the price. Price is NAV plus sales charges, 12b charges etc. Price is what you pay for a share, NAV is what you get per share when you sell. Right?
