A Word About Risk: Investing in a limited number of issuers or sectors may increase risk and volatility. Foreign markets may be more volatile, less liquid, less transparentand subject to less oversight, and values may fluctuate with currency exchange rates; these risks may be greater in emerging markets. Securities purchased in initial publicofferings have no trading history, limited issuer information and increased volatility. Derivative prices depend on the performance of an underlying asset; derivatives carrymarket, credit and liquidity risk.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Source for Morningstar information: Morningstar Inc. For funds with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of all sales charges), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receives a rating of 5 stars; the next 22.5% 4 stars; the next 35% 3 stars; the next 22.5% 2 stars; and the bottom 10% 1 star. In the Technology category, the fund received 3 stars/196 funds (3 years), 3 stars/186 funds (5 years), and 3 stars/144 funds (10 years). Other share classes have different ratings. ©2017 Morningstar, Inc. All rights reserved.

The Morningstar Analyst Rating should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating a mutual fund. Morningstar Analyst Ratings are based on Morningstar’s current expectations about future events; therefore, in no way does Morningstar represent ratings as a guarantee nor should they be viewed by an investor as such. Morningstar Analyst Ratings involve unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause Morningstar’s expectations not to occur or to differ significantly from what we expected.

The Morningstar Analyst Rating is not a credit or risk rating. It is a subjective evaluation performed by the mutual fund analysts of Morningstar, Inc. Morningstar evaluates funds based on five key pillars, which are process, performance, people, parent, and price. Morningstar’s analysts use this five pillar evaluation to identify funds they believe are more likely to outperform over the long term on a risk-adjusted basis. Analysts consider quantitative and qualitative factors in their research, and the weighting of each pillar may vary. The Analyst Rating ultimately reflects the analyst’s overall assessment and is overseen by Morningstar’s Analyst Rating Committee. The approach serves not as a formula but as a framework to ensure consistency across Morningstar's global coverage universe.
