At least 65% of these securities will be issued by companies with stock market capitalizations up to $2.5 billion at the time of investment. Although the fund normally focuses on the securities of U.S. companies, it may invest up to 5% of its assets (measured at the time of investment) in securities of companies headquartered in foreign countries.
