Fund Description

The Fidelity Select Consumer Staples Portfolio (FDFAX) is an actively managed fund that focuses its attention on consumer staples. These include stocks engaged in the manufacturing and distribution of food, toiletries and other necessities. The fund’s managers use fundamental screens to find consumer staples that are trading at discounts to their fair values but still offer plenty of growth and dividends.

Given its narrow focus, FDFAX is suitable as a satellite holding within a broader equity portfolio. The fund is internally managed by Fidelity.
