Portfolio Turnover

The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio).  A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account.  These costs, which are not reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance.  During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 11% of the average value of its portfolio.
