View detailed Fund performance as of the most recent quarter and month end

Past performance does not guarantee future results.

An investor should consider the Funds’ investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before investing or sending money. This and other important information may be found in the prospectus (pdf). To obtain a print prospectus, call 800-432-7856. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

In addition to stocks of large companies, the Funds invest in small- and mid-sized companies that are generally less liquid and more volatile than large companies. The Select Value, Mid Cap Fund, and Value Plus Funds invest in a smaller number of stocks (generally 40 to 60, 30 to 60, and 40 to 70, respectively) than the average mutual fund. The performance of these holdings generally will increase the volatility of the Funds’ returns. There can be no assurance that the Mid Cap Value Fund will grow to or maintain an economically viable size, in which case the Board of Directors may determine to liquidate the Fund.

Value investments are subject to the risk that their intrinsic value may not be recognized by the broad market.
