Description
The investment seeks to achieve a high total investment return (current income and capital appreciation) consistent with reasonable risk. To achieve the fund's investment objective, the adviser invests in a broad range of common stocks, bonds and money market instruments in accordance with an asset allocation strategy based primarily on data derived from proprietary computer models for the stock and bond markets developed by Value Line, Inc.
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 50% of its total assets in stocks and the remaining assets are generally invested in convertible securities, corporate and government debt (including mortgage- and asset-backed securities), and bank loans (which represent an interest in amounts owed by a borrower to a syndicate of lenders) in keeping with the fund's objective. It may also invest up to 25% of its total assets in foreign securities.
The investment seeks to provide capital growth, current income and preservation of capital. The fund emphasizes investments in U.S. common stock and other securities convertible into common stock as well as fixed income securities such as corporate bonds and United States government securities. It may invest in mortgage-backed securities. The fund may also invest in securities of foreign issuers which are listed on a United States stock exchange or are represented by American Depositary Receipts (ADRs).

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.

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.
