Fund Description

The Gabelli Utilities Fund Class AAA (GABUX) is an actively managed mutual fund that seeks a high total return through dividends and share price appreciation. GABUX focuses on small- and mid-cap utility stocks in the United States. These include power generators, natural gas distributors, water-related utilities as well as telecommunications firms. Managers at the firm use various quality metrics, such as dividend records and sound finances, to determine GABUX’s portfolio.

Given GABUX’s high costs and narrow mandate, it should be used by investors as a side position. The fund is internally managed by Gabelli Funds.
