QUESTION: Hello:

I want to thank you for the reply.  The net asset value is shown at most of these websites but where is the offer price?

I thank you for your follow-up reply.

Answer
Hi Kenneth. For open end mutual funds, the NAV is the offer price. At the end of each day, the share price is calculated and this is what the fund is either bought or sold for that day. If you are inquiring about closed end mutual funds, then these are priced differently in which you have what is called a NAV and the bid or ask price which can be different than the NAV. If you take the ticker symbol of a closed end mutual fund you have interest in and plug this into one of the finance sites, then it will provide this information. I hope this helps!
