Fund Description

The Pioneer Fund Class A (PIODX) is an actively managed fund that seeks to outperform the S&P 500 by using screens to select the best stocks from the index. The fund looks for undervalued growth stocks that pay above-average dividends. PIODX is also a socially responsible fund; it does not include stocks whose primary business is alcohol or tobacco. The fund will try and diversify across each sector of the S&P 500 and hold some concentration in each.

With its tilt towards value and income as well as its broad sector diversification, PIODX makes a great choice for investors as a subcore position. The fund is managed by Pioneer Investments.
