objectives
The Fund seeks regular income, conservation of principal, and an opportunity for long-term growth of principal and income.

Strategy
The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of common stocks, preferred stocks, and fixed-income securities.

StocksThe Fund invests primarily in companies that, in Dodge & Cox’s opinion, appear to be temporarily undervalued by the stock market but have a favorable outlook for long-term growth. Under normal circumstances the Fund will hold no more than 75% of its total assets in equity securities. The Fund focuses on the underlying financial condition and prospects of individual companies, including future earnings, cash flow and dividends. Various other factors, including financial strength, economic condition, competitive advantage, quality of the business franchise and the reputation, experience and competence of a company’s management are weighed against valuation in selecting individual securities.

Fixed Income Securities — The Fund invests in primarily investment-grade fixed income securities such as U.S. government obligations, mortgage and asset-backed securities, corporate and municipal bonds, collateralized mortgage obligations and others. To a lesser extent, the Fund may also invest in below investment-grade fixed income securities.
