intercst: I guess that depends on your definition of "well". A $1,000 investment in AMECX 10 years ago is now worth $1,700, you'd have $2,200 with the S&P500.

I see. How much income/bond exposure does the S&P 500 have?

Here's how American describes their fund: Flexibility is the keyword for this fund, which seeks above-average current income and growth of capital through a wide mix of stocks and bonds. Up to 25% of assets can be invested in stocks of companies based outside the United States and up to 20% of assets in bonds rated below investment grade (BB and below).

Fund Objective: The fund's investment objectives are to provide you with current income while secondarily striving for capital growth.
