Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund invests primarily in common stocks of small-size companies that the fund's adviser believes are undervalued, and generally invests in companies that are experiencing a "special situation" that makes them undervalued relative to their long-term potential. Developments creating special situations may include mergers, spin-offs, litigation resolution, new products, or management changes. The fund may also invest in stocks of mid-size or large companies.
