The investment seeks a high total return through the combination of income and capital appreciation. The fund seeks income by investing in a broadly diversified array of securities, including bonds, common stocks, real estate securities, foreign market bonds and stocks, and money market instruments. Bonds, stock and cash components will vary, reflecting the portfolio managers' judgments of the relative availability of attractively yielding and priced stocks and bonds; however, under normal market conditions, the fund's portfolio managers generally attempt to target a 40% bond and 60% stock investment allocation.
