PAST PERFORMANCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE FUTURE RESULTS. ACTUAL RESULTS MAY VARY BASED ON WHEN SUBSCRIBERS BOUGHT AND SOLD BONDS WE RECOMMENDED BUYING AND SELLING.
(1) Assumes pro-rata subscription fee, from September 26, 2017 through September 30, 2019, for our current “Billed every two years” plan for individual investors, which costs $23 per month billed biennially and has been in effect since October 2018. Prior to introducing this subscription plan, we had more-expensive subscription plans, which would have increased the fee assumption in this table. From September 26, 2017 through March 2018, our monthly fee was $75 and, from April 2018 through September 2018, our implied monthly fee under our two-year subscription plan was $29.

Assumes proceeds from the sale of bonds through May 31, 2019 were reinvested in purchases of other BondSavvy bond recommendations.

Please note that we recommended sells of two bonds on October 7, 2019, and the returns from these bonds - BNSF 3.90% 8/1/46 (CUSIP 12189LAZ4) and Bed Bath & Beyond 3.749% 8/1/24 (CUSIP 075896AA8) - reflect returns calculated through October 7, 2019.
