Symbol/CUSIP
A Symbol/CUSIP is a sequence of letters and/or numbers representing and identifying a specific security. These numbers are used when stocks are bought or sold. By clicking on the symbol, you can obtain market price information.

Price
The prices for securities traded on an exchange or NASDAQ are reported on a 20-minute delay. The price for mutual funds will be the Net Asset Value as of market close of the previous day.

For securities traded less frequently, we rely on third-party pricing services or a computerized pricing model, which does not always reflect actual market values. Similarly, some annuity market values provided by outside sponsors are estimates. Please contact your Baird Financial Advisor for additional information on current pricing of a specific security.

Value
Value is the most recent market price available times the number of shares you currently own.

Daily Value Change
The Daily Value Change is the difference between today’s current value and the value as of the previous business day’s close. If current values or prior day’s values are missing, the change will be designated as "N/A."

% of Assets
% of Assets is the percentage of each position relative to the total value of your account.

Estimated Yield
Estimated Yield provides the total estimated annual yield for each position in your account. The estimated annual yield is calculated by annualizing recent interest and/or dividend payments as a percentage of the current value.

The yield estimate does not reflect historical experience or project future results. A third party may have provided this information to us; therefore, we cannot guarantee its accuracy.
