The Overall Morningstar Rating, a weighted average of the 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) ratings, is based on risk-adjusted returns as of 9-30-18. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The weights are: 100% 3-year rating for 36–59 months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60–119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent 3-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
