Investment Objective The investment seeks a level of current income and a growing stream of income over years; growth of capital is the secondary objective. The fund normally will invest at least 90% of its assets in income-producing securities (with at least 50% of its assets in common stocks and other equity securities). It invests primarily in a broad range of income-producing securities- including common stocks and bonds. In seeking to provide the investors with a level of current income that exceeds the average yield on U.S. stocks- the fund generally looks to the average yield on stocks of companies listed on the S&P 500 Index.
