Fund Description

The Fidelity® High Income Fund (SPHIX) is an actively managed mutual fund issued by Fidelity Investments and advised by Fidelity Management & Research Company. The fund was launched on August 29, 1990 and has been managed by Fred Hoff since 2000. Currently, the fund has approximately $5.8 billion in assets under management (AUM). The fund’s primary objective is to seek current income. It also seeks growth of capital.

This fund invests primarily in income-producing debt securities, preferred stocks, and convertible securities. The fund is a diversified bond fund that focuses on investing in bonds issued by companies that are rated B or BB. The fund also seeks exposure to bonds rated CCC or below. Additionally, the fund seeks exposure to financially distressed companies with uncertain financial conditions. While the fund typically holds income producing investments, it may also hold some non-income producing investments.

The majority of the fund’s holdings are corporate bonds, although it may hold other types of bonds or stocks. Only a small percentage of its bond holdings are rated above BBB. While the coupon rates of its holdings range from around 0% to over 12%, most of its holdings’ coupon rates are between 4% and 8%. The majority of the holdings are based in the United States, although it does have some international exposure. The fund typically holds bonds that have a maturity date of less than 10 years.

This mutual fund has significant high risk/reward. The fund is subject to general market risks including changes in interest rates and market conditions, economic risk and political risks. The fund is also subject to foreign investment risks as well as low quality bond risks.

The Fidelity® High Income Fund requires an initial investment of at least $2,500 for regular accounts and $500 for IRA accounts.
