Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Investment performance, current to the most recent month-end, may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. It can be obtained by calling (800) 531-5142. Performance data shown with load reflects the Class A shares maximum sales charge of 5.00% and the Class C shares maximum deferred sales charge of 1.00%. Performance data shown as no load does not reflect the current maximum sales charges. Had the sales charge been included, the fund's returns would be lower. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.
