Thornburg Investment Income Builder has an experienced team and its high-octane approach produces an attractive yield for investors. However, its large overweight in value stocks combined with a bond sleeve that provides an insufficient ballast has exposed investors to more-volatile returns and larger drawdowns than peers and the index, warranting a downgrade of its Morningstar Analyst Rating to Neutral from Bronze for its cheapest share classes. Its more-expensive shares remain Neutral.
