Oct 26, 2020

Fiona Harris, investment specialist for the JPM US Equity Income fund, tells us that just 13% of S&P 500 companies have cut or suspended their payments while more than 40% have raised or started them. She also discusses a number of holdings in the fund, including Morgan Stanley and NextEra, and talks about the US election.
