Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term- tax-efficient capital appreciation. Under normal conditions- the fund invests at least 65% of its total assets in the equity securities (principally- common stock) of domestic issuers listed on a nationally recognized securities exchange or traded on the NASDAQ System. It invests principally in markets and industries with strong growth potential- focusing primarily on the market leaders in these areas as these companies often garner a disproportionate share of the positive financial returns.
