Fund Description

The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes, in stocks of U.S. small-capitalization companies. It may retain securities that it already has purchased even if the company drops below or outgrows the capitalization range. The fund primarily invests in common stocks and may invest in stocks that are traded in the over-the-counter (OTC) market.
