Investment Objective The investment seeks to provide investors with current income while secondarily striving for capital growth. Normally the fund invests primarily in income-producing securities. These include equity securities- such as dividend-paying common stocks- and debt securities- such as interest-paying bonds. Generally at least 60% of the fund's assets will be invested in common stocks and other equity-type securities. The fund may also invest up to 30% of its assets in equity securities of issuers domiciled outside the United States- including issuers in developing countries.
