Fund Description

The Fidelity Select Chemicals Portfolio (FSCHX) is an actively managed portfolio focusing on the chemicals industry of the basic materials sector. FSCHX focuses its attention on firms that produce a variety of paints, pigments, commodity chemicals, plastics, fertilizers and other materials. The fund’s managers use fundamental analysis when selecting stocks for its portfolio. FSCHX can own both domestic and international stocks.

Given its focus on a higher-risk segment of the equity markets, FSCHX is best suited as a small satellite position in a broad portfolio. The fund is internally managed by Fidelity.
