Generally, at least 60% of the Fund's assets will be invested in common stocks and other equity-type securities. However, the composition of the Fund's investments in equity, debt and cash or money market instruments may vary substantially depending on various factors, including market conditions. The Fund may invest up to 25% of its assets in equity securities and up to 10% of its assets in fixed income securities of issuers domiciled outside the United States. The Fund may invest only 20% of its assets in securities rated below investment grade.

You may lose money by investing in the Fund. The likelihood of loss may be greater if you invest for a shorter period of time.
