... the fund that you linked does indeed show a 32% return for 2013 but the fund also has an 11/13/2000 inception date with an average annualized return of 4.41%.


Good point. I linked to the "Admiral Shares" of that Vanguard fund with a lower expense ratio and higher minimum investment.

Even the Investor Shares of the fund with the drag of higher expenses has returned 11.04% annualized since its inception in 1976.
