Change in Value of a $10,000 Initial Investment

A hypothetical $10,000 investment in the fund's Class C shares at inception on 12/8/1988 would have been worth $38,737 on 12/31/2016. This does not reflect the 1.00% maximum CDSC applicable to Class C shares which, if reflected, would have lowered performance. Assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Performance for the fund's other share classes would vary.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. Download a prospectus, or a summary prospectus, if available, that contains this and other information about the fund, and read it carefully before investing.
