The sector weightings and portfolio characteristics may change without notice. ^Typically, no stock will represent more than five percent of portfolio's market value and no sector can represent more than one-third of the market value of the portfolio. Standard & Poor’s 500® Index is an unmanaged index of 500 selected common large capitalization stocks (most of which are listed on the New York Stock Exchange) that is often used as a measure of the U.S. stock market.  Russell 1000® Growth Index is an unmanaged index composed of securities in the Russell 1000® Index, with higher than average price-to-book ratios and higher-than-average forecasted growth values. Russell 2000® Growth Index is composed of the securities found in the Russell 2000® Index with a greater-than-average growth orientation. Companies in this index tend to exhibit higher price-to-book and price-to-earnings ratios. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.
