Investment Objective The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. The fund pursues its objective by investing- under normal market conditions- in long and short positions of domestic equity and equity-related securities. It may invest in domestic equity securities- including small-- mid-- and large-capitalization securities. The fund also may invest in derivative instruments- including swaps on selected baskets of equity securities- to enable the fund to pursue its investment objective without investing directly in the securities of companies to which the fund is seeking exposure.
