Past performance is no assurance of future results. Investment return and market value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate. Shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
Principal Risk Factors: The Fund invests principally in equity securities and writes covered call options on a portion of those equity securities; accordingly the Fund's NAV will fluctuate with changes in the Fund's holdings. By writing call options on the equity securities held, the capital appreciation potential of the Fund's equity securities is limited; however, the potential for capital depreciation remains unlimited. The risks of investing in the Fund are spelled out in the prospectus, shareholder report and other regulatory filings.
