The investment seeks total return, consisting of capital appreciation and current income. The fund invests approximately 50% of its assets in the ten highest dividend-yielding Dow Jones Industrial Average ("DJIA") stocks (known as the "Dogs of the Dow"), in roughly equal dollar amounts, and approximately 50% of its assets in U.S. Treasury securities with a maturity of less than one year. It then utilizes a borrowing strategy which allows the fund's performance to approximate what it would be if the fund had an asset allocation of roughly 75% Dogs of the Dow stocks and 25% U.S. Treasury securities. The fund is non-diversified.
