Description
The investment seeks to maximize total return, consisting of income and capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in fixed income securities of U.S. and foreign corporate issuers, which will include corporate bonds and mortgage-backed and other asset-backed securities, and structured notes with economic characteristics similar to fixed income securities. It will invest in callable bonds, as well as fixed income securities that pay a fixed or floating interest rate or interest that is payable in-kind or payable at maturity.
The investment seeks high current income and, secondarily, capital appreciation. The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets in a widely diversified portfolio of high yield corporate bonds, often called "junk" bonds, as well as income-producing convertible securities and preferred stocks that are rated below investment grade or not rated by any major credit rating agency but deemed to be below investment grade by T. Rowe Price. High yield bonds are rated below investment grade (BB and lower, or an equivalent rating), and tend to provide high income in an effort to compensate investors for their higher risk of default.
The investment seeks high current income; capital appreciation is a secondary investment objective. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in high-yield/high-risk securities rated below investment grade. Securities rated below investment grade may include their unrated equivalents or other high-yielding securities the portfolio managers believe offer attractive risk/return characteristics. It may include derivatives that have characteristics similar to the securities in which the fund may directly invest.

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.
