Investment Objective The investment seeks to produce reasonable income and the fund's secondary goal is moderate long-term growth. To achieve moderate long-term growth, the fund seeks a five-year return which approximates three-fourths of the average total return achieved over a five-year period on the S&P 500 Index. It invests in a diversified portfolio of income-producing equity securities (including common stocks, preferred stocks and convertible securities) and corporate and government fixed income investments (including notes, bonds and debentures). The fund invests, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities.
