Description
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation and income consistent with reduced risk. The fund invests in a flexible mix of common stocks, dividend-paying stocks, and investment grade fixed income securities. When the economy appears to be growing and strong, the fund tends to invest a higher proportion of its assets in stocks. When the economy appears to be contracting or weak, the fund tends to invest a higher proportion in fixed income securities. It invests at least 25% of its assets in fixed income securities and preferred stocks, and invests at least 25% in equity securities.
The investment seeks high current income with the potential for capital appreciation. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests in debt and equity securities that the adviser believes to be undervalued at current market prices. These include dividend paying common stocks, preferred stocks, closed-end income funds, royalty trusts, convertible securities, bonds, warrants to buy common stocks, and U.S. government securities. The fund may hold positions in the debt and equity securities of small, medium and large capitalization companies. It also may invest in shares of closed-end investment companies, as well as exchange trade funds ("ETFs").
The investment seeks long-term growth of capital and income. The fund invests principally in the following three asset classes: equity securities (across all market capitalizations, including common and preferred stock), investment grade fixed income securities of any maturity, and real estate and asset-based securities (which are securities that represent an interest in commodities related industries). It will invest in exchange-traded and closed-end funds for liquidity and diversification purposes.

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.
