Strategy And Objective

The fund seeks capital appreciation. The Adviser normally invests the fund's assets primarily in common stocks. The Adviser invests the fund's assets in securities of companies whose value it believes is not fully recognized by the public. The types of companies in which the fund may invest include companies experiencing positive fundamental change, such as a new management team or product launch, a significant cost-cutting initiative, a merger or acquisition, or a reduction in industry capacity that should lead to improved pricing; companies whose earnings potential has increased or is expected to increase more than generally perceived; companies that have enjoyed recent market popularity but which appear to have fallen temporarily out of favor for reasons that are considered non-recurring or short-term; and companies that are undervalued in relation to securities of other companies in the same industry. The Adviser may invest the fund's assets in securities of foreign issuers in addition to securities of domestic issuers. The Adviser is not constrained by any particular investment style. At any given time, the Adviser may tend to buy "growth stocks or "value" stocks, or a combination of both types. In buying and selling securities for the fund, the Adviser relies on fundamental analysis, which involves a bottom-up assessment of a company's potential for success in light of factors including its financial condition, earnings outlook, strategy, management, industry position, and economic and market conditions. In addition to the principal investment strategies discussed above, the Adviser may lend the fund's securities to broker-dealers or other institutions to earn income for the fund. The Adviser may also use various techniques, such as buying and selling futures contracts and exchange traded funds, to increase or decrease the fund's exposure to changing security prices or other factors that affect security values. If the Adviser's strategies do not work as intended, the fund may not achieve its objective. Description of Principal Security Types Equity securities represent an ownership interest, or the right to acquire an ownership interest, in an issuer. Different types of equity securities provide different voting and dividend rights and priority in the event of the bankruptcy of the issuer. Equity securities include common stocks, preferred stocks, convertible securities, and warrants.
