MainStay MAP Equity will get a new name, subadvisor, and strategy as of April 26, 2021. New subadvisor Wellington is a good shop, but the incoming portfolio manager is relatively inexperienced, using a value strategy that is not particularly distinctive. The fund earns a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Neutral for all share classes except the pricey B and C shares, which earn Negative ratings.
