Description
The investment seeks long-term capital growth, consistent with preservation of capital and balanced by current income. The fund invests in a combination of common stocks of domestic companies with a minimum market capitalization of $150 million, as well as high-quality fixed-income obligations. It invests 50%-80% of its assets in equity securities selected primarily for their growth potential, and 20%-50% in equity and fixed-income securities selected primarily for their income potential.
The investment seeks income and preservation and growth of capital. The fund invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of U.S. equity and debt securities (although the fund may invest up to 35% of its total assets in equity and debt securities of non-U.S. issuers). It is intended to present a balanced investment program between growth and income by investing approximately 40-75% of its total assets in common stock, including securities convertible into common stock, and up to 60% of its total assets in debt securities issued by U.S. or non-U.S. governments and corporate entities rated at the time of purchase within the two highest grades.

Similarity

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.
