Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and it is possible to lose money by investing. Because the fund may, at times, concentrate its investments in a specific area, during such times they may be subject to greater risks and market fluctuations than when the portfolio represents a broader range of securities. The fund's strategies may also result in high portfolio turnover that could result in increased commission costs, affecting the fund's performance, as well as capital gains tax liabilities to the shareholder. Because the fund is classified as non-diversified, a price change in any one security may have a greater impact than would be the case if the fund were diversified.
