Fund Summary 
The investment seeks regular income, conservation of principal, and an opportunity for long-term growth of principal and income. The fund invests in a diversified portfolio of equity securities and debt securities. It primarily invests in companies that, in Dodge & Cox's opinion, appear to be temporarily undervalued by the stock market and have a favorable outlook for long-term growth. The fund may invest up to 20% of its total assets in U.S. dollar-denominated securities of non-U.S. issuers traded in the United States that are not in the S&P 500.
