Fund Description

The American Funds American Mutual Fund Class A (AMRMX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that seeks to provide a high level of current income from dividends as well as moderate capital growth. AMRMX’s managers use various fundamental metrics to uncover large-cap value stocks in the U.S. that blend these attributes. The fund will not invest in alcohol or tobacco stocks. AMRMX primarily invests in common stocks of U.S. companies but can hold some foreign and government bonds in order to reach its goals of high income and capital appreciation.

Given its low costs and focus on dividends and income generation, AMRMX makes a fine core or subcore choice for investors. The fund is managed by Capital Research and Management Company.
