Diversified Common Stock Fund

A mutual fund that invests its assets in a relatively large number and variety of common stocks. The investment manager for this type of fund is not restricted in terms of company size or investment style.



A diversified common stock fund will generally tend to a portfolio of stocks in the range of 100 or more issues with large cap, mid cap and small cap company sizes that reflect a combination of value, growth, and blended (value-growth mix) investment styles.
