American Century Equity Income stays true to its prudent philosophy. The fund focuses on downside protection and capital preservation, which causes it to lag rivals when markets rally but stand out during periods of market unrest, as seen in early 2016. Even such brief periods of solid downside protection more than compensate for longer periods of trailing in up markets. This discipline has rewarded investors over time, earning the fund a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Silver.
