Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investing in equity stocks is risky and subject to the volatility of the markets. The performance of any single portfolio holding is no indication of the performance of other portfolio holdings or its strategy. A growth investment strategy seeks stocks that are deemed to have above-average growth potential. Growth stocks offer an established track record and are perceived to be less risky than value stocks. A value investment strategy seeks undervalued stocks that show a strong potential for growth. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which a value strategy invests may be based on incorrect assumptions or estimations, may be affected by declining fundamentals or external forces, and may never be recognized by the broader market.
