Investment Objective The investment seeks to increase the value of the investment over the long-term. The fund primarily invests in common stocks of domestic corporations with medium-sized market capitalization believed to have growth potential. The adviser believes a company's annual sales volume and the market capitalization are the factors most illustrative of a company's size. The adviser generally considers companies with market capitalization up to $2 billion as "small," between $2 billion and $10 billion as "medium," and greater than $10 billion as "large" in terms of market capitalization.
