The Portfolio invests in domestic common stocks and U.S.-listed foreign securities. The value of the Portfolio's units will fluctuate with changes in the value of these common stocks. Common stock prices fluctuate for several reasons including changes in investors' perceptions of the financial condition of an issuer or the general condition of the relevant stock market, such as the current market volatility, or when political or economic events affecting the issuers occur.
The Portfolio will generally hold, and may continue to buy, the same securities even though a security's outlook, rating, market value or yield may have changed. As with all investments, you may lose some or all of your investment in the Portfolio.
The Portfolio invests in securities issued by small- and mid-cap companies. These securities customarily involve more investment risk than securities of large-cap companies. Small- and mid-cap companies may have limited product lines, markets or financial resources and may be more vulnerable to adverse general market or economic developments.
Read the Portfolio's prospectus carefully before investing. It contains the Portfolio's investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses and other information, which should be considered carefully before investing.
