PEER GROUP ANALYSIS
This chart compares PFF to the highest rated funds in its peer group of Equity Income funds. The above graph illustrates two key measures that investors should consider when assessing the investment potential of a particular fund. One of the key factors is how the fund has performed over the most recent reporting period, defined as the 1 year total return on the bottom axis. The second factor is the fund's reported expense ratio, on the right axis, which includes things like management fees. The best funds, with higher returns and lower expenses, stake out a position in the lower left part of this graph.
