The Fund’s holdings are subject to change at any time. Characteristics are expressed as a percentage of net assets except for certain closed-end funds where characteristics are expressed as a percentage of total managed assets.

All Funds (with the exception of the Money Market Fund) exclude cash and cash equivalent securities from Top holdings and Top issuers.

Goal and Strategy

The Fund’s primary objective is to generate a high level of current income consistent with prudent risk. The Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in income securities, which include a diversified portfolio of corporate and government bonds. In choosing bonds for the portfolio, the Fund’s managers evaluate the full spectrum of bonds in the marketplace and diversifies across a number of industries. It is contemplated that the Fund may invest up to 25% of the value of its total assets in debt securities that have a rating of below-investment grade by Moody's and Standard & Poor's at the time of purchase.

The performance data shown represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so that investors' shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. See performance data current to the most recent month-end, which may be higher or lower than that cited.

Performance figures assume that all distributions are reinvested.

Morningstar Rating1

Overall Rating

The fund has not yet been rated by Morningstar.

Overall Ratings are not available.

1 Morningstar proprietary ratings reflect risk-adjusted performance through most recent month-end. The ratings are subject to change every month. For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category, the next 22.5%, 35%, 22.5% and the bottom 10% receive 5, 4, 3, 2 or 1 star, respectively. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of 1 fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
