Investment Objective The investment seeks to provide a high level of current income. The fund invests primarily in a diversified group of high-yielding- higher-risk corporate bonds-commonly known as "junk bonds"-with medium- and lower-range credit-quality ratings. It invests at least 80% of its assets in corporate bonds that are rated below Baa by Moody's Investors Service- Inc. (Moody's); have an equivalent rating by any other independent bond-rating agency; or- if unrated- are determined to be of comparable quality by the fund's advisor. The fund's high-yield bonds and loans mostly have short- and intermediate-term maturities.
