Description

The investment seeks high, long-term total investment return consistent with moderate investment risk. The fund allocates its assets among stocks, bonds and money market instruments. While the percentage of assets allocated to each asset class is flexible rather than fixed, it normally invests at least 50% of its net assets in stocks and at least 35% in bonds, cash and money market instruments. The fund's investments in stocks are normally diversified among common stocks of large-, mid- and small-size companies that offer the potential for capital growth, current income, or both.
