Strategy, Benefits, Results

Strategy

The Fund Invests Primarily In Companies That Have:

  • Consistent dividend increases
    • At least 8 out of 10 years
    • No dividend decreases during that time
  • Substantial dividend increases
    • At least double over last 10 years
  • Reinvested earnings
    • Paid out less than 65% of current earnings in dividends (except for utility companies), and
  • Strong balance sheets
    • Long-term debt less than 50% of total capitalization (except for utility companies), or
    • Investment-grade senior debt

As a fundamental investor focusing on individual securities, the investment manager looks for companies that it believes meet the criteria above, trade below their intrinsic value and are fundamentally sound, and attempts to acquire them at attractive prices.

Benefits

  • Diversification. We invest in companies across the entire market-cap spectrum, with a variety of industries and sectors.
  • Focus on High-Quality Companies. 
  • Leverages both the research resources of Franklin Equity Group and a dedicated team focused on dividend growth investing.

Investing In The Fund

What Are the Risks?

  • All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • Value securities may not increase in price as anticipated, or may decline further in value.
  • For stocks paying dividends, dividends are not guaranteed, and can increase, decrease or be totally eliminated without notice.
  • Smaller- and mid-sized 色999日韩偷自拍拍 stocks carry special risks, including greater price volatility over the short term.
  • Smaller and mid-sized companies often have relatively small revenues, limited product lines and a small market share.
  • These and other risks are described more fully in the fund’s prospectus.
