Investment Objective
The fund seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation by investing in common stocks believed to be undervalued. Income is a secondary objective.
In taking a value approach to investment selection, at least 65% of total assets will be invested in common stocks the portfolio manager regards as undervalued. Stock holdings are expected to consist primarily of large-company issues, but may also include smaller companies.
Risk/Reward Potential*

This fund offers a moderately conservative way to capture the long-term appreciation potential and, secondarily, income, of out-of-favor stocks. 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 prices will rise—providing capital appreciation opportunities.

The fund’s potential for price appreciation may be somewhat lower than one using a growth-focused strategy, and there is also the possibility that a stock judged to be undervalued is actually appropriately priced.
* Annually we evaluate the standard deviation of each US mutual fund listed and its resulting placement within specific risk/return categories.

Methodology: If a fund is at least 5 year old, it is generally placed in risk/return categories based on the standard deviation of its performance for the longest period of its calendar year returns; the longest time period used for analysis is 10 years (regardless of the fund's inception). If a fund is less than 5 years old, we generally use the fund's primary benchmark disclosed in its prospectus as a proxy and follow the same process of using 10-year standard deviation of the benchmark, or longest time period available. The firm at its sole discretion may show a fund in a higher risk category based on qualitative or other factors that may differ from this methodology.
