The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation and modest current income. Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the fund's net assets are invested in equity securities of mid-capitalization companies. It invests primarily in a concentrated number (generally 30 to 60) of mid-capitalization equity securities selected on a value basis and whose current market prices, in Heartland Advisors' judgment, are undervalued relative to their intrinsic value.
The investment seeks investment results, before fees and expenses, that track the performance of the S&P MidCap 400® Dividend Aristocrats Index (the "index"). Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in component securities (i.e., securities of the index and comparable securities that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the economic characteristics of the securities of the index). The index contains a minimum of 40 stocks which are equally weighted. No single sector is allowed to comprise more than 30% of the index weight.
The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the NASDAQ US Dividend AchieversTM 50 Index (the "underlying index"). The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stocks of companies that comprise the underlying index. Strictly in accordance with its guidelines and mandated procedures, the NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. includes common stocks in the underlying index that have a consistent record of dividend increases, principally on the basis of dividend yield and consistent growth in dividends.

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.


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.
