Fund Description

The Gabelli Utilities Fund Class C (GAUCX) is an actively managed mutual fund that seeks a high total return through dividends and share price appreciation. GAUCX focuses on small- and mid-cap utility stocks in the United States. This includes power generators, natural gas distributors and 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 GAUCX’s portfolio.

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