As of March 31, 2017 the standardized performance for the S&P 500 Index is as follows: 1-Year 17.17%, 5-Year 13.30% and 10-Year 7.51%.

The Earnings Growth Rate is not a forecast of the fund’s future performance. Earnings growth for a Fund holding does not guarantee a corresponding increase in the market value of the holding or the Fund.
Stocks are generally perceived to have more financial risk than bonds in that bond holders have a claim on firm operations or assets that is senior to that of equity holders. In addition, stock prices are generally more volatile than bond prices. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer term debt securities. A stock may trade with more or less liquidity than a bond depending on the number of shares and bonds outstanding, the size of the company, and the demand for the securities. Similarly, the transaction costs involved in trading a stock may be more or less than a particular bond depending on the factors mentioned above and whether the stock or bond trades upon an exchange. Depending on the entity issuing the bond, it may or may or may not afford additional protections to the investor, such as a guarantee of return of principal by a government or bond insurance company. There is typically no guarantee of any kind associated with the purchase of an individual stock. Bonds are often owned by individuals interested in current income while stocks are generally owned by individuals seeking price appreciation with income a secondary concern. The tax treatment of returns of bonds and stocks also differs given differential tax treatment of income versus capital gain.
Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the Fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance data current to the most recent calendar quarter-end and month-end may be obtained by clicking the links.
Small-capitalization companies tend to have limited liquidity and greater price volatility than large-capitalization companies. Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in real estate securities may involve greater risk and volatility including greater exposure to economic downturns and changes in real estate values, rents, property taxes, tax, and other laws. A real estate investment trust’s (REITs) share price may decline because of adverse developments affecting the real estate industry. Investments in American Depository Receipts (ADRs) are subject to some of the same risk associated with directly investing in securities of foreign issuers, including the risk of changes in currency exchange rates, expropriation or nationalization of assets, and the impact of political, diplomatic, or social events.
