Strategy Overview

Attractive income and total return potential

The strategy offers investors the potential for current income and capital appreciation by investing in what PIMCO believes are the most attractive U.S. dividend-paying opportunities. In addition to providing current income, the strategy may serve as a solution for U.S. equity exposure with potentially lower volatility.


A Word About Risk:
Equitiesmay decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic, and industry conditions. Investing in securities ofsmaller companies tends to be more volatile and less liquid than securities of larger companies. Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and politicalrisks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. Dividend-oriented companies that have paid regular dividends to shareholders maydecrease or eliminate dividend payments in the future. A decrease in dividend payments by an issuer may result in a decrease in the value of the securityheld by the Strategy or the Strategy receiving less income. High-yield, lower-rated, securities involve greater risk than higher-ratedsecurities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a positioncould not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Diversification does not ensure againstloss.
