Prospectus & Shareholder Reports


 
 
The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its investable assets in equity and equity-related securities. The fund may invest in foreign securities, which are subject to currency fluctuation and political uncertainty; derivative securities, which may carry market, credit, and liquidity risks; exchange-traded funds (ETFs), which may duplicate some management fees; and fixed income investments, which are subject to interest rate risk, and their value will decline as interest rates rise. Please see the fund's prospectus for more detailed information regarding risks. These risks may increase the Fund's share price volatility. There is no guarantee the Fund’s objective will be achieved.

Average weighted market capitalization is the average market capitalization of stocks in a fund, each weighted by its proportion of assets. Beta measures a fund’s sensitivity to changes in the overall market relative to its benchmark. The P/E ratio (Source: Morningstar, Inc.) relates the price of a stock to the per-share earnings of the company. P/E is calculated using a harmonic weighted average, which excludes outliers that can easily skew results. Standard deviation depicts how widely returns vary around its average and is used to understand the range of returns most likely for a given fund. A higher standard deviation generally implies greater volatility. Turnover Ratio is the rate of trading in a portfolio, higher values imply more frequent trading. Due to data availability, statistics may not be as of the current reporting period.
