Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation. The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in the common stocks of companies expected to benefit from the development and use of science and/or technology. While most assets will typically be invested in U.S. common stocks- the fund may invest in foreign stocks- including issuers in emerging markets- in keeping with the fund's objective. It may sell securities for a variety of reasons- such as to secure gains- limit losses- or redeploy assets into more promising opportunities.
