Fund Description
Fund Objective
To seek to provide total return.

Investment Approach
The Fund invests primarily in dividend-paying common stocks of large companies that we believe may accelerate or grow their dividend payout ratio and that also demonstrate favorable prospects for total return. The portfolio manager focuses on companies that have one or more of the following characteristics: high dividend yields that the manager considers relatively safe; above average dividend yield that the manager expects will continue and/or grow; below-average dividend yield that the manager expects could grow, or no dividend, but where the manager believes the company has the ability to initiate a dividend. Other factors for portfolio selection include a company's established operating history, competitive dividend yields; growth and profitability opportunities; return on capital: history of improving sales and profits; and stock price as compared to its estimated intrinsic value.

Returns and Expenses

Data quoted is past performance and current performance may be lower or higher. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Performance at NAV does not include the effect of sales charges. Class A shares, including sales charges, reflects the maximum applicable front-end sales load.

Risk Factors: As with any mutual fund, the value of the Fund's shares will change, and you could lose money on your investment. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. These and other risks are more fully described in the fund's prospectus. Not all funds or fund classes may be offered at all broker/ dealers.

Pricing: All prices and year-to-date returns are based on closing quotes unless noted, as supplied to the NASDAQ by 6:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Stylebox: The Morningstar Equity style box reveals a fund's investment strategy by displaying the fund's investment style and the market capitalization of the stocks owned.

Index Description: Russell 1000 is an unmanaged index comprised of securities that represent the stock market. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Performance results for some funds may include the effect of expense reduction arrangements. If those arrangements had not been in place, the performance results would have been lower.

Unsubsidized yields reflect what the yield would have been without the effect of reimbursements and waivers. The adviser and its affiliates have or may voluntarily waive a portion of their fees (including, but not limited to, distribution and service (12b-1) fees) and reimburse certain expenses. There is no guarantee that the fund will avoid a negative yield. Such undertaking may be amended or withdrawn at any time.

30-Day SEC Yield: is calculated based on a formula mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that calculates a fund's hypothetical annualized income, as a percentage of its assets. A security's income, for the purposes of this calculation, is based on the current market yield to maturity (in the case of bonds) or projected dividend yield (for stocks) of the fund's holdings over a trailing 30 day period. This hypothetical income will differ (at times, significantly) from the fund's actual experience; as a result, income distributions from the fund may be higher or lower than implied by the SEC yield.

12-Month Trailing Distribution Yield: at NAV refers to the 12-month historical cash flow paid over the past 12 months in dividends, divided by the past months ending NAV.

Morningstar Ratings: For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of all sales charges), placing emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund and rated separately.) A fund's overall rating is derived from a weighted average of the 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) rating metrics. Morningstar Rating is for the share classes specified; other classes may have different performance characteristics.

Information is subject to change and is not intended to represent any past or future investment recommendations.

Please remember that an investment in a mutual fund involves risk. Investment return and principal value of a mutual fund investment will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

YTD Prices can be updated 3 to 4 hours after the Daily Pricing information which can result in mismatching data.
