Aggressive Growth Portfolio


    Aggressive Growth Portfolio seeks to achieve high (greater than the stock market as a whole), long-term appreciation in the value of its shares.

    Under normal market conditions, the Portfolio invests in stocks and stock warrants of U.S. and foreign companies that are expected to have a higher profit potential than the stock market as a whole and whose shares are valued primarily for potential growth in revenues, earnings, dividends or asset values rather than for current income.

    Reasons to Consider

    • 1

      Higher Appreciation Potential - Aggressive Growth Portfolio intends to hold stocks from at least twelve industry groups and within each industry group ordinarily holds large-, mid- and small-capitalization companies. Such companies may include those involved in technology, medicine, capital goods, natural resources, energy, construction, transportation, finance, entertainment or service, those developing or exploiting new industries, products, services or markets, or those whose shares are otherwise believed to be undervalued.

    • 2

      Fully Invested in the Stock Market at All Times - Frequent switching of capital into and out of the stock market greatly magnifies the risk of investing in stocks. Active switchers may suffer losses when the stock market declines and then miss out on profits when the market recovers. The result is that losses – not profits – compound. By staying fully invested in stocks at all times, the Portfolio avoids the unnecessary hazards of switching. This policy creates greater potential for higher appreciation in the long run.


    Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Investment performance, current to the most recent month-end, may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. It can be obtained by calling (800) 531-5142. Performance data shown with load reflects the Class A shares maximum sales charge of 5.00% and the Class C shares maximum deferred sales charge of 1.00%. Performance data shown as no load does not reflect the current maximum sales charges. Had the sales charge been included, the Portfolio's returns would be lower. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

Mutual fund investing involves risk; loss of principal is possible.

Aggressive Growth Portfolio's stocks may appreciate in value more rapidly than the stock market, but they are also subject to greater risk, especially during periods when the prices of U.S. stock market investments, in general, are declining. The Portfolio invests in smaller companies, which will involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. The Portfolio also invests in foreign securities, which will involve greater volatility, political, economic and currency risks, and differences in accounting methods.
