Before you invest
Short sales involve costs and risk. If a security sold short increases in price, the Fund may have to cover its short position at a higher price than the short sale price, resulting in a loss. Because the Fund’s loss on a short sale arises from increases in the value of the security sold short, such loss is theoretically unlimited. When borrowing a security for delivery to a buyer, the Fund also may be required to pay a premium and other transaction costs, which would increase the cost of the security sold short. By investing the proceeds received from selling securities short, the Fund is employing a form of leverage, which creates special risks.

Investors should consider the Funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses before investing. The Prospectus, which contains this and other information about the Funds, should be read carefully before investing. An investment in the Funds is not appropriate for all investors and is not intended to be a complete investment program. The Funds are designed as long-term investments and not as trading vehicles.
There can be no assurance that the Funds' investment objectives will be met.
