Basic Info

Investment Strategy
The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the Value Line® Dividend Index. The fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in the common stocks and depositary receipts that comprise the index. The index seeks to measure the performance of the securities ranked #1 or #2 according to the index provider's proprietary Value Line® Safety™ Ranking System (the "Safety Ranking System") that are also still expected to provide above-average dividend yield.
