Investing in the Fund

What Are the Risks?
  • All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • Stock prices fluctuate, sometimes rapidly and dramatically, due to factors affecting individual companies, particular industries or sectors, or general market conditions.
  • Convertible securities are subject to the risks of stocks when the underlying stock price is high relative to the conversion price and debt securities when the underlying stock price is low relative to the conversion price.
  • The fund’s investment in foreign securities also involves special risks, including currency fluctuations and economic as well as political uncertainty.
  • These and other risks are described more fully in the fund’s prospectus.
