Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of companies with large market capitalizations at the time of each purchase. It also invests in securities of foreign issuers. Employing a "blend" strategy, the fund's assets are invested in equity securities with both growth and/or value characteristics.
