Nicholas Equity Income Fund

A focus on yield and cheap stocks helps this fund hold down risk.

Editor's Note: This story has been updated since its original publication in the November issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine.

Albert "Ab" Nicholas was one of the fund industry's star managers in the 1970s and ’80s. Since then, Nicholas and his small group of funds have receded from the limelight. But the funds have continued to produce pleasing, if not scintillating, results over the years. One of the best performers has been Nicholas Equity Income (symbol NSEIX), which seems perfectly suited to today’s volatile markets.
