The investment seeks current income and, secondarily, long-term growth of capital. The fund is a "fund of funds," meaning that it seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in other MainStay Funds (the "underlying funds"). It seeks to achieve its investment objective by normally investing approximately 60% (within a range of 50% to 70%) of its assets in underlying fixed-income funds and approximately 40% (within a range of 30% to 50%) of its assets in underlying equity funds. The underlying equity funds may consist of approximately 10% (within the range of 0% to 20%) of international equity funds.
The investment seeks to provide long-term growth of income and a high and sustainable level of current income, along with moderate long-term capital appreciation. The fund invests approximately 60% to 65% of its assets in investment-grade corporate, U.S. Treasury, and government agency bonds, as well as mortgage-backed securities. The remaining 35% to 40% of fund assets are invested in common stocks of companies that have a history of above-average dividends or expectations of increasing dividends.
The investment seeks current income as well as total return; capital appreciation is the secondary objective. The fund allocates the fund's assets among three main asset classes: the stock class (equity securities of all types), the bond class (fixed-income securities of all types maturing in more than one year, including lower-quality debt securities which are sometimes referred to as high yield debt securities or junk bonds), and the short-term/money market class (fixed-income securities of all types maturing in one year or less).

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
