Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Fund performance changes over time and current performance may be lower or higher than what is stated. For performance current to the most recent month-end please call 1-800-625-5759. Returns of less than 1 year are not annualized.

† Credit quality and portfolio holdings are reviewed on an ongoing basis and are subject to change.

‡ Ratings are provided by Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s which are independent third parties. In order to be more conservative, when ratings differ, the lower rating is used. When ratings for Standard and Poor's (S&P) and Moody's are not available, we will substitute other nationally recognized statistical ratings organziations such as Fitch or DBRS. Quality ratings reflect the credit quality of the underlying issues in the fund portfolio and not of the fund itself. Information obtained from third parties is believed to be reliable, but cannot be guaranteed. Issuers with credit ratings of AA or better are considered to be of high credit quality, with little risk of issuer failure. Issuers with credit ratings of BBB or better are considered to be of good credit quality, with adequate capacity to meet financial commitments. Issuers with credit ratings below BBB are considered speculative in nature and are vulnerable to the possibility of issuer failure or business interruption. Standard and Poor's and Moody's do not provide ratings for the individual securities issued by the U.S. Treasury and government agencies. Thus, no rating is shown.  The Not Rated category applies to Non-Government related securities that could be rated but have no rating.
