The Corporate Income Fund pursues high current income with some capital appreciation by investing primarily in investment-grade corporate bonds. The addition of high-yield bonds, convertibles, and foreign securities provides the opportunity for capital growth and higher income, but with greater risk.
Yield and share price will vary with interest rate changes. Investors should note that if interest rates rise significantly from current levels, bond fund total returns will decline and may even turn negative in the short term. There is also a chance that one of the fund's holdings will have its credit rating downgraded or may default, potentially reducing the fund's income level and share price.
