Investment Objective

The fund follows a value approach, seeking to identify companies whose stock prices do not appear to reflect their underlying values.

Mid-caps typically offer greater return potential than larger established firms and involve less risk than small-caps. By investing in stocks that already appear to be out of favor or undervalued, the fund should be less volatile than one investing in growth stocks. If, as the manager expects, the underpriced holdings regain favor in the marketplace, their stock prices will rise--providing capital appreciation opportunities.

Earnings of mid-caps tend to fluctuate more than those of larger firms, and small-caps could offer greater return potential. In addition, the value approach carries the risk that a security's intrinsic value may not be recognized for a long time, or the stock may actually be appropriately priced.
*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.
