    This fund offers investors a flexible growth- or value-oriented approach to long-term appreciation and a reasonable level of current income. Such investment flexibility enables the fund to pursue promising growth companies with a good track record of earnings growth, while also investing in out-of-favor companies that appear to be selling at a discount to the market. This unique approach strategically positions the fund to benefit from whichever investment style is in favor in the marketplace at any given time.

    Since the fund invests in both growth and value stocks, its share price can be affected by the risks associated with each type of investment. Stocks with growth characteristics can have relatively wide price swings, and because earnings expectations often drive their stock prices, earnings disappointments can results in price declines. If the stocks in the value portion of the portfolio regain favor, their prices should rise, providing additional appreciation potential. However, the risks include the possibility that low prices are warranted or that investors may not recognize a stock's intrinsic worth for an unexpectedly long time.
    *Funds are placed in general risk/return categories based on their past performance or, for newer funds, the performance of the types of securities in which they invest. There is no assurance past trends will continue.
