For equity funds the vertical axis shows the market capitalization of the stocks owned and the horizontal axis shows investment style (value, blend, or growth).

Morningstar ratings reflect historical risk-adjusted performance as of December 31, 2014 and are subject to change every month. Ratings are based on a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variations in monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees) emphasizing downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. Ten percent of the funds in a category receive five stars, 22.5% four stars, 35% three stars, 22.5% two stars and 10% one star. The Overall Rating reflects a weighted average of a fund’s 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) risk adjusted performance. The peer category is Morningstar Small Growth.
Morningstar Load-Waived Ratings supplement Morningstar Ratings for Class A shares by recalculating measures that are load-adjusted without the effects of the front-end sales charge. Load Waived ratings should only be considered by investors who are not subject to the Fund’s front-end sales charge.
