A Note About Risk
Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and it is possible to lose money by investing. Because this fund may, at times, concentrate its investments in a specific area, during such times it may be subject to greater risks and market fluctuations than when the portfolio represents a broader range of securities. The funds strategies may also result in high portfolio turnover that could result in increased commission costs, affecting the funds performance, as well as capital gains tax liabilities to the shareholder. Because this fund is classified as non-diversified, a price change in any one security may have a greater impact than would be the case if the fund were diversified. The fund may invest in securities of foreign companies. Foreign investments involve special risks including currency fluctuation and political instability. There is no guarantee that the investment objectives will be met. Dividends and yields represent past performance and there is no guarantee that they will continue to be paid.
