  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks a high level of current income, while also considering growth of capital.
The fund primarily invests in income-producing debt securities, preferred stocks, and convertible securities, with an emphasis on lower-quality debt securities. It potentially invests in non-income producing securities, including defaulted securities and common stocks. The fund invests in companies in troubled or uncertain financial condition. It invests in domestic and foreign issuers. The fund uses fundamental analysis of each issuer's financial condition and industry position and market and economic conditions to select investments.
  Morningstar Category: High Yield Bond
High-yield bond portfolios concentrate on lower-quality bonds, which are riskier than those of higher-quality companies. These portfolios generally offer higher yields than other types of portfolios, but they are also more vulnerable to economic and credit risk. These portfolios primarily invest in U.S. high-income debt securities where at least 65% or more of bond assets are not rated or are rated by a major agency such as Standard & Poor's or Moody's at the level of BB (considered speculative for taxable bonds) and below. 
  Investment Risks
High-Yield Bond Funds: Funds that invest in lower-rated debt securities (commonly referred to as junk bonds) involve additional risk because of the lower credit quality of the securities in the portfolio. There are risks associated with the possibility of a higher level of volatility and increased risk of default.
