Yield-at-cost: seeing the whole picture
While many investment products provide a consistent income stream, the payments are often fixed and don't increase over time. Conversely, companies that are committed to rewarding shareholders through increasing dividend payments can provide investors with the potential for a growing income stream and stock price appreciation. Investors who focus too much on current dividend yield may overlook a wide universe of companies with attractive fundamentals and the potential for impressive dividend growth in the future. We believe investors are best served by approaching dividend-oriented portfolios from an integrated, total return perspective that considers both income and capital gains over the long term.

Important information on risk
All investments carry a certain degree of risk, including possible loss of principal, and there is no assurance that an investment will provide positive performance over any period of time. Equity investments are subject to market risk or the risk that stocks will decline in response to such factors as adverse company news or industry developments or a general economic decline. Debt or fixed income securities are subject to market risk, credit risk, interest rate risk, call risk, tax risk, political and economic risk, and income risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices fall. Non-U.S. investments involve risks such as currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, lack of liquidity and differing legal and accounting standards. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. This report should not be regarded by the recipients as a substitute for the exercise of their own judgment. It i s important to review your investment objectives, risk tolerance and liquidity needs before choosing an investment style or manager.
