Investment Objective The investment seeks income and capital growth consistent with reasonable risk. The fund invests approximately 60% of assets in stocks and other equity securities and the remainder in bonds and other debt securities- including lower-quality debt securities (those of less than investment-grade quality- also referred to as high yield debt securities or junk bonds)- when its outlook is neutral. It invests at least 25% of total assets in fixed-income senior securities (including debt securities and preferred stock).
