Description
The investment seeks to provide investors with current income while secondarily striving for capital growth. Normally the fund invests primarily in income-producing securities. These include equity securities, such as dividend-paying common stocks, and debt securities, such as interest-paying bonds. Generally at least 60% of the fund's assets will be invested in common stocks and other equity-type securities. The fund may also invest up to 25% of its assets in equity securities of issuers domiciled outside the United States, including issuers in developing countries.
The investment seeks reasonable income; it also considers the potential for capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of assets in equity securities. It uses a neutral mix of approximately 50% common stocks, 15% REITs and other real estate related investments, 15% convertible securities, and 20% preferred stocks. The fund invests the fund's assets with a focus on equity securities that pay current dividends and show potential for capital appreciation, which tends to lead to investments in "value" stocks in the common stock category. It invests in domestic and foreign issuers.
The investment seeks long-term capital growth. The fund pursues its objective by investing in a combination of underlying funds and directly held financial instruments. It allocates 55%-90% of its assets in equity securities and 10%-40% in debt securities. The fund may enter into standardized derivatives contracts traded on domestic or foreign securities exchanges, boards of trade, or similar entities, and non-standardized derivatives contracts traded in the over-the-counter market.

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.
