          Main Risks

          Equities are subject to market, market sector, market liquidity, issuer, and investment style risks to varying degrees.
          The use of derivatives involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in the underlying assets. Derivatives can be highly volatile, illiquid, and difficult to value and there is the risk that changes in the value of a derivative held by the portfolio will not correlate with the underlying instruments or the portfolio's other investments.

          Risk Metrics

          As of  06/30/24  3-Year Trailing Standard Deviation Alpha Beta R-Squared Sharpe Ratio
          DEYCX
          17.85 -5.43 0.98 96.86 0.12

          All risk metrics are provided by Morningstar. The index used in the calculations are determined by Morningstar which may not be the funds primary benchmark. The index Morningstar used for this analysis is S&P 500® Index.


          Alpha - Alpha is a measure of a security's or portfolio's excess return.

          Beta - Beta is a measure of a security’s or portfolio’s volatility, or systematic risk.

          R-Squared - R-squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund’s or security’s movements that are explained by movements in a benchmark index.

          Sharpe Ratio - Sharpe ratio is a risk-adjusted measure that measures reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better.

          Standard Deviation - Standard deviation is a statistical measure of the degree to which an individual portfolio return tends to vary from the mean, based on the entire population. The greater the degree of dispersion, the greater the degree of risk. In mutual funds, the standard deviation tells us how much the return on the fund is deviating from the expected normal returns.
