The GAMCO Growth Fund seeks to provide capital appreciation. Capital is the amount of money you invest in the Fund. Capital appreciation is an increase in the value of your investment. The Fund's secondary goal is to produce current income.
Principal Investment Strategies:
The Fund will primarily invest in common stocks and may also invest in securities which may be converted into common stocks. The Fund may also invest in foreign securities. The Fund focuses on securities of companies which appear to have favorable, yet undervalued, prospects for earnings growth and price appreciation. The Fund's investment adviser, Gabelli Funds, LLC, invests the Fund's assets in companies which it believes have above-average or expanding market shares, profit margins and returns on equity.
The Fund may appeal to you if:
you are a long-term investor
you seek both growth of capital and some income
you believe that the market will favor growth over value stocks over the long term
you wish to include a growth strategy as a portion of your overall investments
You may not want to invest in the Fund if:
you are seeking a high level of current income
you are conservative in your investment approach
you seek stability of principal more than growth of capital
The Fund's share price will fluctuate with changes in the market value of the Fund's portfolio securities. Stocks are subject to market, economic and business risks that cause their prices to fluctuate. When you sell Fund shares, they may be worth less than what you paid for them. Consequently, you can lose money by investing in the Fund.
Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, sales charges and expense of the fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains more complete information about this and other matters. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing.
