Strategy And Objective

The Fund seeks total return through a combination of growth and income. Davis Selected Advisers, L.P. ( Davis Advisors or the Adviser ), the Fund s investment adviser, uses the Davis Investment Discipline to invest Davis Appreciation & Income Fund s assets in a balanced portfolio of common stock, convertible securities, preferred stock and bonds. The Fund may also hold cash. The Fund may invest in large, medium or small companies without regard to market capitalization and may invest in securities issued by either domestic or foreign companies. The Fund s investments in common stock issued by companies across the spectrum of market capitalizations are purchased primarily for their growth potential. Fixed income securities, consisting of both investment grade and high-yield, high-risk debt securities ( junk bonds ), are purchased both for current income and to provide diversification. Convertible securities, which include both preferred stock and bonds and may be converted into common stock if the company grows, offer both growth potential, some income and may provide downside protection. In the current market, Davis Advisors portfolio managers expect to continue investing a significant portion of the Fund s assets in convertible securities. Davis Investment Discipline. Davis Advisors manages equity funds using the Davis Investment Discipline. Davis Advisors conducts extensive research to try to identify businesses that possess characteristics that Davis Advisors believes foster the creation of long-term value, such as proven management, a durable franchise and business model, and sustainable competitive advantages. Davis Advisors aims to invest in such businesses when they are trading at discounts to their intrinsic worth. Davis Advisors emphasizes individual stock selection and believes that the ability to evaluate management is critical. Davis Advisors routinely visits managers at their places of business in order to gain insight into the relative value of different businesses. Such research, however rigorous, involves predictions and forecasts that are inherently uncertain. After determining which companies Davis Advisors believes the Fund should own, Davis Advisors then turns its analysis to determining the intrinsic value of those companies equity securities. Davis Advisors seeks companies whose equity securities can be purchased at a discount from Davis Advisors estimate of the company s intrinsic value based upon fundamental analysis of cash flows, assets and liabilities, and other criteria that Davis Advisors deems to be material on a company-by-company basis. Davis Advisors goal is to invest in companies for the long term (ideally, five years or longer, although this goal may not be met). Davis Advisors considers selling a company s equity securities if the securities market price exceeds Davis Advisors estimates of intrinsic value, if the ratio of the risks and rewards of continuing to own the company s equity securities is no longer attractive, to raise cash to purchase a more attractive investment opportunity, to satisfy net redemptions or for other purposes.
