- We seek to provide a growing level of dividend income, long-term capital appreciation, and a reasonable level of current income.
- The portfolio will normally invest 65% of total assets in common stocks of dividend-paying companies that we expect to increase their dividends over time and also provide long-term capital appreciation.
- The portfolio employs a conservative, growth-at-a-discount investment approach with an emphasis on dividend growth. We identify companies with a sustainable competitive advantage that are likely to show consistent growth of earnings and dividends.
- We particularly favor companies that generate excess cash flow with attractive valuations and solid cash flow to support future dividend increase.
All investments are subject to risks, including possible loss of principal. Dividend-paying stocks may lag shares of smaller, faster-growing companies. Also, stocks that appear temporarily out of favor may remain out of favor for a long time.
