This compare function provides pertinent data to help you make your investment decisions. But there are other factors you will want to consider in your decision, such as the length of time you wish to maintain your investment and the amount of risk you are willing to take in pursuit of your goals. This compare function allows you to compare funds based on performance history, risk statistics, etc. Please be aware that funds within the same category may differ in investment strategy, portfolio holdings and risk level. For this reason, you should not make your investment decision based solely on a comparison of funds' past performance.

Current performance may be lower or higher than the quoted past performance, which cannot guarantee future results. Share price, principal value, yield, and return will vary and you may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. For up-to-date standardized total returns, please click here.
The performance information shown does not reflect the deduction of redemption fees, if it did, the performance would be lower.
^ The gross expense ratio reflects the fund expenses as stated in the fee table of the fund's prospectus prior to the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. The net expense ratio reflects fund expenses as stated in the fee table of the fund's prospectus after the deduction of any waiver or reimbursement. If a fund has an active expense ratio limitation, the expiration date is shown in the table above. Expense ratios are based on the most recent fiscal year-end data available.
*Morningstar Ratings™ are based on risk-adjusted returns. The Overall Morningstar Rating™ is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with a fund's 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating™ metrics.
Average annual total return figures include changes in principal value, reinvested dividends, and capital gain distributions. For funds less than one year old, the Since Inception return figure is not annualized and represents an aggregate total return.
1 The yield quotation more closely reflects the current earnings of the money market fund than the total return.
2 The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
Morningstar rated the Science & Technology Fund among 196, 196, 186 and 144 Technology funds for the overall rating and the 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods (as applicable) ending 02/28/2017, respectively. The Science & Technology Fund received 4, 3 and 3 stars for the 3, 5, and 10 year periods (as applicable) respectively.
