The investment seeks to provide high total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of borrowings, if any, for investment purposes) in fixed-income securities. Up to 50% of the fund's net assets may be invested in debt securities that do not meet the investment grade criteria (commonly known as "junk bonds"). The fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets in equity securities. It may invest in securities of any maturity and does not have a target average duration.
The investment seeks to achieve a high level of income consistent with a secondary goal of preservation of capital. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in a broad market of securities that the Adviser believes are undervalued. The fund's investment adviser defines "broad market" as the span of credit qualities and market capitalizations of the overall market that it will consider for purchase for the fund. The average maturity of the fixed-income securities in the fund's portfolio will generally range from 6 to 8 years, and will not exceed a targeted maturity or average workout date of 10 years.
The investment seeks a high level of current income with moderate share price fluctuation. The fund broadly diversifies its assets among a set of T. Rowe Price mutual funds representing specific market segments. It normally invests in a variety of domestic and international bond funds, a money market fund, and an income-oriented stock fund. The fund can invest in funds holding high-quality domestic and foreign bonds, high-yield bonds, short- and long-term securities, and dividend-paying stocks. It may sell shares of the underlying funds for a variety of reasons, such as to secure gains, limit losses, or redeploy assets into more promising opportunities.

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.
