  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks current income and long-term growth of capital from a portfolio consisting primarily of income producing equity securities of U.S. corporations.
Normally, the portfolio invests at least 80% of its total assets in income producing equity securities of U.S. issuers. The remainder of the portfolio may be invested in debt securities, most of which are expected to be convertible into common stocks. The portfolio may invest up to 20% of its total assets in securities of non-U.S. issuers, including depositary receipts. It will not invest more than 5% of its total assets in the securities of emerging markets issuers.
  Morningstar Category: Large Value
Large-value portfolios invest primarily in big U.S. companies that are less expensive or growing more slowly than other large-cap stocks. Stocks in the top 70% of the capitalization of the U.S. equity market are defined as large cap. Value is defined based on low valuations (low price ratios and high dividend yields) and slow growth (low growth rates for earnings, sales, book value, and cash flow). 
  Investment Risks
There are no additional fund specific investment risks (e.g. liquidity risk, currency risk, foreign investment risk, etc.) associated with this fund beyond the normal risks generally associated with investing in a mutual fund.
