**No assurance can be given that the investment objective will be achieved or that an investor will receive a return of all or part of his or her initial investment. Actual results could be materially different from the stated goals. Investors should carefully consider the risks involved before deciding to invest. See the product profile for a summary of risk considerations. As with any investment, there is a potential for profit as well as the possibility of loss.

Investments in securities of leveraged companies are likely to be more volatile than investments in companies that are not leveraged. Portfolios that engage in short sales of securities can incur losses if the securities appreciate in value and may experience higher volatility due to leverage resulting from investing the proceeds of securities sold short. This risk is greatest in volatile markets. Losses could be limitless.
