†Lipper Small Cap Core Average is the average return of the entire Lipper Small Cap Core classification. The Lipper Small Cap Core Funds Average is a total return performance average of the mutual funds tracked by Lipper, Inc. that, by portfolio practice, invest at least 75% of their equity assets in companies with market capitalizations (on a three-year weighted basis) below Lipper’s USDE small-cap ceiling. Small cap core funds have more latitude in the companies in which they invest. These funds typically have an average price-to-earnings ratio, price-to-book ratio, and three-year sales-pershare growth value, compared to the S&P Small Cap 600 Index. The Lipper Small Cap Core Funds Index is not what is typically considered to be an “index” because it tracks the performance of other mutual funds rather than the changes in the value of a group of securities, a securities index or some
other traditional economic indicator. Investors cannot invest directly in any index.

‡The Russell 2000 Index ("Benchmark") is an unmanaged index and measures the performance of the small-cap segment of the U.S. equity universe. The Russell 2000 Index is a subset of the Russell 3000 Index representing approximately 10% of the total market capitalization of that index. It includes approximately 2000 of the smallest securities based on a combination of their market cap and current index membership. One cannot invest directly in an index.

*As of March 31, 2013, the Russell 2000 Index included companies with market capitalization from approximately $10 million to $5.60 billion.

 

 

The Morningstar RatingsTM shown are as of 4/30/15 and are based on risk-adjusted 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) returns, and past performance is no guarantee of future results. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more 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 within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.)
