The investment seeks capital appreciation, with added emphasis on the protection of capital during unfavorable market conditions. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings made for investment purposes) in common stocks of U.S. companies. The fund may gain exposure to such stocks directly or indirectly. The managers currently define "U.S. companies" as those companies that are deemed to be United States companies for purposes of their geographical eligibility for inclusion in the S&P 500 Index, a broad-based index of U.S. stocks.
The investment seeks investment results that, before fees and expenses, generally correspond to the performance of the S&P 500 Stock Covered Call Index. The fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise its underlying index. The underlying index is comprised of all the equity securities in the S&P 500 Index (the "reference index") in substantially similar weight as the reference index and short (written) call options on up to 100% of each of the option eligible securities in the reference index that meet, among others, the stock and option price criteria of the underlying index methodology.
The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the CBOE S&P 500 BuyWrite IndexSM. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its total assets in securities that comprise the underlying index and will write (sell) call options thereon. The underlying index is a total return benchmark index that is designed to track the performance of a hypothetical "buy-write" strategy on the S&P 500® Index.

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.
