Investing in the Fund

What Are the Risks?
  • All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • Stocks historically have outperformed other asset classes over the long term, but tend to fluctuate more dramatically over the short term.
  • Value securities may not increase in price as anticipated or may decline further in value.
  • Investments in smaller-company stocks have exhibited greater price volatility than larger-company stocks, particularly over the short term.
  • Foreign securities risks include currency fluctuations, and economic and political uncertainties.
  • Investments in companies engaged in mergers, reorganizations or liquidations involve special risks as pending deals may not be completed on time or on favorable terms, as well as lower-rated bonds, which entail higher credit risk.
  • These and other risks are described more fully in the fund’s prospectus.
