The Fund seeks long-term growth of principal and income.
The Fund invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of equity securities issued by companies from at least three different countries, including emerging markets. The Fund invests primarily in medium-to-large well established companies based on standards of the applicable market. The Fund is not required to allocate its investments in set percentages in particular countries. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 40% of its total assets in securities of non-U.S. companies.
In selecting investments, the 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. The Fund also 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.
