Investment Objective The investment seeks capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in equity securities (including securities convertible into, or that the investment manager expects to be exchanged for, common or preferred stock) of U.S. and foreign companies that the investment manager believes are available at market prices less than their value based on certain recognized or objective criteria (intrinsic value). The equity securities in which the fund invests are primarily common stock. The fund may invest substantially and potentially up to 100% of its assets in foreign securities.
