    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.
    The Tax-Free High Yield Fund charges a 2% redemption fee on shares held 90 days or less. The performance information shown does not reflect the deduction of the redemption fee; if it did, the performance would be lower.

    1The 30-day dividend yield represents the average daily dividends for the 30-day period, annualized and divided by the net asset values per share at the end of the period; it is available the first quarter after the fund's inception. The SEC standardized yield is computed under an SEC standardized formula and reflects an estimated yield to maturity (assuming all portfolio securities are held to maturity); it is available the first month after the fund's inception.
    2 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.
