    A WORD ABOUT RISK

    The Fund invests in a limited number of securities and, as a result, the fund's performance may be more volatile than the performance of other funds holding more securities. Investing in small and mid-sized companies may offer the potential for higher returns, but are also subject to greater short-term price fluctuations than larger, more established companies. Investing in foreign and/or emerging market securities involves risks relating to interest rates, currency exchange rates, economic, and political conditions. At times, the Fund's investments may represent industries or industry sectors that are interrelated or have common risks, making it more susceptible to any economic, political, or regulatory developments or other risks affecting those industries and sectors. These risks may increase share price volatility.

    Chart is for illustrative purposes. These results represent the percentage change in net asset value per share. Returns would have been lower had sales charges been reflected.

     
    For the most recent month-end performance results click here. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.


    The performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results.
    Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.



    Performance results reflect any applicable expense waivers in effect during the periods shown. Without such waivers, fund performance would be lower. Waivers may not be in effect for all funds. Certain fee waivers are contractual through a specified period. Otherwise, fee waivers can be rescinded at any time. See the prospectus and financial statements for more information.

    Class A Share (POP): Reflects deduction of maximum 5.75% sales charge.
    Performance for periods prior to the inception of Class Y Shares on 7/31/08 reflects the NAV performance of the Fund's Class A Shares. The performance does not reflect differences in expenses, including the 12b-1 fees applicable to Class A Shares. Since fees for Class A Shares are generally higher than those of Class Y, the performance shown for the Class Y Shares prior to their inception would have been higher. Class Y shares are not subject to sales charges and are available for limited groups of investors, including institutional investors.
    NAV results represent the percent change in net asset value per share. The Russell 1000 Growth Index (benchmark) measures the performance of large-cap U.S. growth stocks. The Lipper Large Cap Growth Funds Average represents the average annual returns for all Large Cap Growth Funds for the respective time periods. Indices are unmanaged and their returns assume reinvestment of dividends and, unlike fund returns, do not reflect any fees or expenses. You cannot invest directly in an index. Periods less than one year are actual, not annualized.
