    This fund provides the long-term growth potential of well-managed medium-sized companies with attractive growth prospects. These companies have successfully weathered their start-up years, offer proven products and services, have experienced management teams, and can often finance their own growth.

    Earnings of mid-caps tend to fluctuate more than those of larger firms, and small-caps could offer greater return potential. The fund invests in growth stocks, which have higher valuations and lower dividend yields than stocks of slower-growth or cyclical firms.
    *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.
