The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance at offer reflects a front-end sales charge of 4.75 percent for Class A shares; a contingent deferred sales charge of 1 percent for Class C share redemptions made earlier than one year after purchase. Performance data quoted reflects reinvested dividends and capital gains. Returns of less than one year are not annualized. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.
Risk considerations: International investing presents specific risks, such as currency fluctuations, differences in financial accounting standards as well as potential political and economic instability.
Because the fund normally will hold a focused portfolio of stocks of fewer companies than many other diversified funds, the increase or decrease of the value of a single stock may have a greater impact on the fundís net asset value and total return.
As with all equity investing, there is the risk that an unexpected change in the market or within the company itself may have an adverse effect on its stock. The biggest risk of equity investing is that returns can fluctuate and investors can lose money.
There are risks associated with dividend investing, including that dividend-issuing companies may choose not to pay a dividend, may not have the ability to pay, or the dividend may be less than what is anticipated. Dividend-issuing companies are subject to interest rate risk and high dividends can sometimes signal that a company is in distress.
Growth companies are expected to increase their earnings at a certain rate. When these expectations are not met, investors may punish the stocks excessively, even if earnings showed an absolute increase. Growth company stocks also typically lack the dividend yield that can cushion stock prices in market downturns. The companies engaged in the technology industry are subject to fierce competition and their products and services may be subject to rapid obsolescence. The values of these companies tend to fluctuate sharply.
Investments in mid-cap and small-cap companies generally involve greater risks than investing in larger capitalization companies. Mid-cap companies often have narrower commercial markets, more limited managerial and financial resources, and more volatile trading than larger, more established companies.
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS) may be affected by economic conditions including credit risk, interest rate risk and other factors that affect property values, rents or occupancies of real estate.
