3 Best Mid-Cap Value Funds To Add To Your Portfolio

Value funds are those that tend to trade at prices lower than their fundamentals (i.e. earnings, book value and debt to equity). It is a common practice to invest in value funds for income or yield. However, not all value funds solely comprise companies that primarily use their earnings to pay dividends. Investors interested in choosing value funds for yield, should be sure to check the mutual fund yield. Notably, the mutual fund yield is dividend paid out divided by the value of the mutual fund’s shares.

Meanwhile, mid-cap value mutual funds provide excellent opportunities for investors seeking returns at lesser risk by gaining exposure to stocks that are available at a discounted price. While large caps are normally known for stability and the smaller ones for growth, mid caps offer the best of both the worlds, allowing growth and stability, simultaneously.
