Shareholders should be aware that distributions will reduce each fund’s net asset value (NAV) by the amount of the distribution. Market activity may also impact a fund’s NAV on the ex-dividend date, so the total change in a fund’s NAV may be more or less than its distribution.
Shareholders with automatic reinvestment will receive their distribution in the form of additional shares, while others will receive their distribution check. The distributions do not affect the fund’s total return.
