Sites for total return graph comparisons

Can anyone tell me of a good website that will allow me to overlay total returns graphs for two securities so that I can compare them. I'm looking for data on both ETFs and bond funds, but sites that do one or the other would be welcome. The major graphing sites like google and yahoo only show NAV, which is useless for bond funds.

The best I've found so far is going to vanguard and for a particular fund clicking on Price and Performance tab, then entering anohter fund in "Add a fund" of the "Growth of $10,000" graph. But these are relatively low resolution graphs with limited ability to zoom around and such.

The best I know of is StockCharts: PerfChart - StockCharts.com

Morningstar is improving, and Fidelity had some basic capability.

Sometimes StockCharts misses a dividend correction, so you always need to double check any big steps in the graph in December.

Hmm, the first thing I tried on that PerfChart site gave me buggy results:

PerfChart - StockCharts.com

When I stretch the slider out to the max time period it shows the Short Bond fund up 40% over the Sht Term Treasuries over about 8.5 years, which is completely impossible. I don't think I can trust that site. But thanks.

Yup. It looks like VBISX is good and the others are probably missing dividends.

The problem is finding something better.
