The JPMorgan Equity Income Fund falls within Morningstar’s large-value category.

According to the funds website, “The Fund’s portfolio managers target high-quality U.S. companies with attractive valuations and healthy dividends. One specific feature looked for is a higher dividend yield combined with a lower payout ratio. This combination suggests that a company will likely maintain the ability to pay compelling dividends, with the potential for future growth and appreciation.”

The fund placed in the 47th percentile of its category for the trailing 12 months, the 18th percentile for the trailing three years, the 43rd percentile for the trailing five years and the 9th percentile for the trailing 10 years as of December 2016.

The fund normally charges a front-end sales load of 5.25 percent, which means out of every $10,000, $9,475 is invested with the remaining $525 going toward sales commissions. This is on top of an expense ratio of 1.04 percent, which is considered below average by Morningstar for the large-value category.

The level of return, as rated by Morningstar, is above average for the trailing three years, average for the trailing five years and high for the trailing 10 years.
