PIMCO Total Return: The Mutual Fund vs. the ETF
The performance differences have narrowed between the two funds recently, and Morningstar's Tim Strauts and Eric Jacobson say PIMCO investors should choose the least expensive option.
Christine Benz: Hi, I'm Christine Benz for Morningstar.com. Should you buy PIMCO Total Return in exchange-traded fund format or in traditional mutual fund form? Joining me to discuss that question is Tim Strauts and Eric Jacobson. They are both senior fund analysts with Morningstar. Eric is on the phone with us, and Tim Strauts is here in the studio.
Tim and Eric, thank you both for being here.
