Strategy And Objective

The fund s investment objective is to seek capital appreciation. MFS (Massachusetts Financial Services Company, the fund s investment adviser) normally invests the fund s assets primarily in equity securities. Equity securities include common stocks and other securities that represent an ownership interest (or right to acquire an ownership interest) in a company or other issuer. In selecting investments for the fund, MFS is not constrained by any particular investment style. MFS may invest the fund s assets in the stocks of companies it believes to have above average earnings growth potential compared to other companies (growth companies), in the stocks of companies it believes are undervalued compared to their perceived worth (value companies), or in a combination of growth and value companies. While MFS may invest the fund s assets in securities of companies of any size, MFS primarily invests in securities of companies with large capitalizations. MFS may invest the fund s assets in foreign securities. MFS normally invests the fund s assets across different industries and sectors, but MFS may invest a significant percentage of the fund s assets in issuers in a single industry or sector. In conjunction with a team of investment research analysts, sector leaders select investments for the fund. MFS generally manages the fund to be sector neutral to the Standard & Poor s 500 Stock Index using MFS custom industry and sector categories to classify the fund and the Standard & Poor s 500 Stock Index s holdings. MFS uses an active bottom-up investment approach to buying and selling investments for the fund. Investments are selected primarily based on fundamental analysis of individual issuers. Quantitative screening tools that systematically evaluate issuers may also be considered.
