Fund profile: The fund has been prominent in Fidelity's stable and should do well given the emphasis on dividend-paying stocks in the current investment environment.

Performance: down 10.7%, putting it in the 94th percentile versus its large-blend category peers and 7 percentage points below their average return. But over three years it has an admirable 19.8% annual average return.
