Strategy And Objective

The fund seeks long-term capital growth. Main investments. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its assets, determined at the time of purchase, in stocks and other securities with equity characteristics of US smaller capitalization companies. For purposes of this 80% investment limitation, the term assets is defined as net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, and the small capitalization equity universe is defined as the bottom 20% of the total domestic equity market capitalization (at the time of initial investment), using a minimum market capitalization of $10 million. As of December 31, 2020, companies in which the fund typically invests have a market capitalization range of between $43 million and $18.73 billion. The fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in the stocks of non-US companies, including those in emerging markets, and large capitalization stocks. Management process. In choosing stocks, portfolio management focuses on individual security selection rather than industry selection. Portfolio management uses an active process that combines financial analysis with company visits to evaluate management and strategies. Company research is significant to the investment process. Portfolio management uses a bottom-up approach to picking securities, focusing on stocks that it believes have superior growth prospects and above average intermediate to long-term performance potential. Portfolio management emphasizes individual selection of small company stocks across all economic sectors, early in their growth cycles and which portfolio management believes to have the potential to be the blue chips of the future. Portfolio management generally seeks companies it believes have a leading or dominant position in their niche markets, a high rate of return on invested capital and the ability to finance a major part of future growth from internal sources. Portfolio management also looks for estimated above-average growth in revenues and earnings and a balance sheet that portfolio management believes can support this growth potential with sufficient working capital and manageable levels of debt. Portfolio management follows a disciplined selling process that seeks to lessen risk, and will normally sell a stock when its price reaches portfolio management's expectations, portfolio management believes there is a material change in the company's fundamentals, other investments offer better opportunities or in an effort to readjust the weighted average market capitalization of the fund. Portfolio management may consider information about Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues in its fundamental research process and when making investment decisions. Securities lending. The fund may lend securities (up to one-third of total assets) to approved institutions, such as registered broker-dealers, banks and pooled investment vehicles.
