The ICE BofA US High Yield Index tracks the performance of below-investment-grade, but not in default, U.S. dollar-denominated corporate bonds publicly issued in the U.S. domestic market, and includes issues with a credit rating of BBB or below, as rated by Moody’s and S&P. The Nasdaq Composite Index is a market capitalization weighted index consisting of all the stocks listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. The S&P 500 Index is a market capitalization-weighted index of 500 widely held common stocks. Unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges. An investor cannot invest directly in an index. The 30-Day SEC yield is based on dividends accrued by the Fund’s investments over a 30-Day period, and not on the dividends paid by the fund, which may differ and are subject to change. Basis point (bps) is one hundredth of one percent. EBITDA is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and is a calculation of a company’s financial health. Free cash flow is earnings before depreciation, amortization, and non-cash charges minus maintenance capital expenditures. Earnings per share (EPS) is the portion of a company’s profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock and serves as an indicator of a company’s profitability.

Earnings growth is not representative of the Fund’s future performance.

Equity securities are subject to price fluctuation and possible loss of principal. Small- and mid-cap stocks involve greater risks and volatility than large-cap stocks. Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are closely linked to the performance of the real estate markets. REITs are subject to illiquidity, credit and interest rate risks, and risks associated with small and mid-cap investments. Asset-backed, mortgage-backed or mortgage-related securities are subject to prepayment and extension risks. Investments in MLP securities are subject to unique risks, including the risks of MLPs and the energy sector, including the risks of declines in energy and commodity prices, decreases in energy demand, adverse weather conditions, natural or other disasters, changes in government regulation, and changes in tax laws. Short selling is a speculative strategy. Unlike the possible loss on a security that is purchased, there is no limit on the amount of loss on an appreciating security that is sold short. International investments are subject to special risks, including currency fluctuations and social, economic and political uncertainties, which could increase volatility. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. Fixed-income securities involve interest rate, credit, inflation, and reinvestment risks; and possible loss of principal. As interest rates rise, the value of fixed-income securities falls. High yield bonds are subject to greater price volatility, illiquidity, and possibility of default. As a non-diversified Fund, it is permitted to invest a higher percentage of its assets in any one issuer than a diversified fund, which may magnify the Fund’s losses from events affecting a particular issuer. Derivatives, such as options and futures, can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses, and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance.

The views expressed are those of the portfolio managers as of the date indicated, are subject to change, and may differ from the views of other portfolio managers or the firm as a whole. These opinions are not intended to be a forecast of future events, a guarantee of future results, or investment advice. All data referenced are from sources deemed to be reliable but cannot be guaranteed. Discussions of individual securities are intended to inform shareholders as to the basis (in whole or in part) for previously made decisions by a portfolio manager to buy, sell or hold a security in a portfolio. References to specific securities are not intended and should not be relied upon as the basis for anyone to buy, sell or hold any security. Portfolio holdings and sector allocations may not be representative of the portfolio manager’s current or future investment and are subject to change at any time. Dividends are not guaranteed and a company’s future ability to pay dividends may be limited.
