Valuation is the analytical process of determining the current (or projected) worth of a company. Earnings estimates are an analyst’s estimate for a company’s future quarterly or annual earnings per share. The S&P 500 Index is a market capitalization weighted index of the 500 largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is a stock market index that tracks 30 large, publicly owned blue chip companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ. The Russell 2000 Index measures the performance of the 2000 smaller companies in the Russell 3000 Index. The Russell 2000 Growth Index measures the performance of those Russell 2000 companies with higher price to value ratios and higher growth rates. One cannot invest in an index.

The Fund invests in small-cap securities which present a greater risk of loss than large-cap securities, and in growth companies which can be more sensitive to the company’s earnings and more volatile than the stock market in general. The Fund may also invest in foreign securities which are subject to risks including currency fluctuations, economic and political change and differing accounting standards. The Fund may invest in derivatives and initial public offerings (IPOs), which are highly volatile. Additional risk information may be found in the prospectus.
