    This drop today, is it because of Capital Gains?

    For a balanced fund, FBALX has certainly not done well during this market downturn. Seems the fund had a more than moderate market position

    Hello Port! Where did you get the figure $1.751 dividend? If you were correct that the fund went up $0.22 per share then should the dividend be $1.12? I simply added the reported loss per share of $0.90 to the $0.22 gain. Does this make sense to you?

    Today (Monday, Oct 12, 2020 - before market close), I just saw these reported numbers for FBALX for Oct 9: $0.099 for dividend and $0.984 for capital gains. Thus, the total distribution is $1.083/share. Since FBALX reported a loss of $0.90/share after the market close on Friday Oct 9, these numbers indicated that FBALX actually gained $0.183/share (=1.083-0.9) on Friday!

    When stock markets dropped in 2001, FBALX maintained its value quite well.

    But when stock markets dropped in 2008, FBALX also suffered.

    Why?

    Check the notes on your accounts. I received a note saying the following: " A dividend of 0.097 per share, short-term capital gain of 0.195 per share, and long-term capital gain of 0.958 per share, declared on 10/13/2017, will be posted to your account on 10/16/2017" Note: This totals about $1,25 per share, equivalent to the price drop. Let's see what happens on Monday, 10/16/17. Hopefully we will be made whole!
