Description
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation. The fund's principal investment strategy is value investing. It invests in common stock of U.S. companies that the fund's adviser believes are underpriced based on the company's intrinsic value. The fund invests in common stocks of companies that have strong financial positions, evidenced by balance sheets without significant debt or other liabilities compared to cash reserves. From time to time it may be invested more heavily in a particular sector if the adviser determines that companies in that sector present the best value.

The investment seeks maximum total return through a combination of capital appreciation and current income. The fund typically invests in common stocks and other equity securities, which may include securities issued by real estate investment trusts (REITs), publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs) or royalty trusts, as well as preferred stocks, convertible bonds, convertible preferred stocks, and warrants. In addition to investing in equity securities that offer high dividend yields, the Advisor expects to generate income from selling covered call options on securities in the fund. It is non-diversified.

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.
