Growth And Income Fund


Funds come in many flavors, more or less whatever flavor can sell. So how about putting together a basket of growth funds - Coca Cola, Disney, Harley Davidson - mixed with a bunch of bonds and/or high yielding equities like AT&T, Pfizer, Heinz Ketchup, etc.? You get growth. You get income. "You get the best of both worlds." - Hannah Montana, 2008.
