While stocks have historically been a leading choice of long-term investors, they do fluctuate in price. The value of a shareholder's investment in the fund will go up and down, sometimes dramatically, which means that shareholders could lose money.
Small companies carry additional risks because their earnings tend to be less predictable, their share prices more volatile and their securities less liquid than larger, more established companies. Some of the fund's investments are made in anticipation of future products and services that if delayed or cancelled could cause the company's stock price to drop. The fund may purchase securities of companies in initial public offerings (IPOs). The prices of securities purchased in IPOs can be very volatile.
Please refer to the prospectus for a more complete discussion of the fund's main risks.
