Hi, am a beginner learning value investing.
Am trying to workout the rough yield between investment classes.
With regards to a indexing option, where can i find the data to calculate the overall long term return of an index fund such as VAS?
- with the dividend yield, maybe take the average of a few years?
- and with the long term capital appreciation, which price do we take for beginning and ending point to work out a compound growth rate?
Both of these are heavily dependent on the particular price paid?
