The investment seeks to offer long-term capital growth with consistency derived from dividend yield. The fund invests normally at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities (common and preferred stock). It seeks to invest primarily in the common stocks of U.S. companies that the fund's subadvisers believe will pay dividends at above-market levels.
