Fund Overview
A risk-focused approach to high yield investing

By concentrating on higher credit qualities within the non-investment-grade bond universe and avoiding the riskier, more speculative lower tiers, PIMCO High Yield Fund is designed to provide an attractive risk/reward tradeoff for high yield investors.


Why Invest In This Fund
Enhanced income potential

High yield bonds are issued by corporations that lack the long-term earnings or corporate growth to earn an investment grade rating from credit rating agencies. To compensate for this additional risk, high yield bonds offer significantly higher income potential than other types of fixed income securities.


Attractive risk/reward tradeoff

Credit qualities and their contributing underlying factors can vary dramatically within the non-investment-grade bond market. Focusing on the middle and upper echelons of credit ratings, PIMCO High Yield Fund takes a more conservative approach to high yield investing.


Fundamentals remain strong

Default rates for high yield bonds have fallen sharply since 2009, remaining well below their long-term historical average. This, along with improving balance sheets and higher recovery rates when defaults do occur, should continue to bode well for corporate fundamentals.

A word about risk:
High-yield, lower-rated, securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including market, interest-rate, issuer, credit, and inflation risk; investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and political risks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. Mortgage and asset-backed securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, subject to early repayment risk, and their value may fluctuate in response to the market’s perception of issuer creditworthiness; while generally supported by some form of government or private guarantee there is no assurance that private guarantors will meet their obligations. Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic, and industry conditions. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Diversification does not ensure against loss.

Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. For funds with at least a 3-yr history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees) with an emphasis on downward variations and consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating is a weighted average of the performance figures for its 3-, 5- and 10-yr (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar, Inc.® 2015. All rights reserved.

Hollow stars represent a class of shares with inception dates that is different than the inception date of the fund. For the period prior to the inception date of these shares, performance information is based on the performance of the fund’s Institutional Class shares, adjusted to reflect the actual distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees and other expenses paid by the newer share class.
