The ratings quoted reflect past performance of the fund, which is no guarantee of future results. Share price and investment return fluctuate and an investor's shares may be worth more or less than original cost upon redemption. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Go to the Fund Performance section of this site for standardized total returns and for month-end returns reflecting current performance.

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

Ratings are subject to change every month. Ratings reflect risk-adjusted performance, and are derived from a weighted average of the fund's 3-, 5-, and 10-year (as applicable) ratings. The Ratings formula measures the amount of variation in a fund's performance and gives more emphasis to downward variations. For the Overall Rating, the weighting used will vary if the fund changed categories over time. The top 10% of the funds in the category receive five stars; the next 22.5% four stars; the next 35% three stars; the next 22.5% two stars; and the last 10% one star. Other share classes may have different ratings. Funds represent a single portfolio with multiple share classes that have different expense structures.

Equity funds are subject generally to market, market sector, market liquidity, issuer, and investment style risks, among other factors, to varying degrees, all of which are more fully described in the fund's prospectus. Bond funds are subject generally to interest rate, credit, liquidity (except government-only funds), prepayment and extension risks (for mortgage funds), and market risks, to varying degrees, all of which are more fully described in the fund's prospectus. High yield bonds involve increased credit and liquidity risk compared with investment grade bonds and are considered speculative in terms of the issuer's ability to pay interest and repay principal on a timely basis.

Investing internationally involves special risks, including changes in currency exchange rates, political, economic and social instability, a lack of comprehensive company information, differing auditing and legal standards and less market liquidity.
