The High Income folio was developed for income-oriented investors seeking above-average distribution income as well as moderately aggressive long-term capital appreciation.


The High Income folio consists of stocks of companies that pay dividends and other types of securities that provide income distributions, such as MLPs (Master Limited Partnerships) and REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). This folio is designed for investors seeking a high level of income distributions. This folio’s broad diversification across large established companies and entities from different industries potentially making it less volatile than income funds with less diversified investments.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We sorted U.S. exchange-listed securities, including MLPs (Master Limited Partnerships), by highest income distributions for securities with market capitalizations greater than $1 billion.
  2. We then screened for securities with a historical beta between 0.1 and 1. As a reference point, the S&P 500 has a historical beta of one and therefore this folio generally should be less volatile than the S&P 500.
  3. From this list, we selected the securities with the highest income distributions in each sector and targeted the sector weights to be comparable to those of the S&P 500.
  4. We equally weighted all securities in the folio.

Number of Securities

There are generally 30 securities in the folio.

Update Frequency


If the characteristics of the folio have changed substantially, the securities included may change. Also, corporate actions, such as a merger, or other events may cause changes to the securities held at any time. Your returns may deviate significantly from the values displayed here, due to many factors, including how long after a folio has been updated that you place orders to update your holdings.
