Choosing a Fund
Use our Risk/Reward spectrum to navigate your way to the mutual fund that is right for you.

For those moderate-risk investors seeking a competitive long-term investment return through a broadly diversified portfolio, this Fund may be appropriate for you. It offers a high degree of relative predictability in an uncertain stock market by seeking investment results, before expenses, approximating the aggregate price and dividend performance of the securities included in the S&P 500 Stock Index. Our experienced investment team does not use traditional methods of investment management of the Fund, rather the team will buy and sell securities in response to the S&P 500 Stock Index.

Among 1,338 large blend funds derived from a weighted average of the fund's 3-, 5- and 10-year risk-adjusted returns as of 06/30/14.

Stock Index received 4 stars for the 3-year rating among 1,338 large blend funds, 4 stars for the 5-year rating among 1,192 funds and 3 stars for the 10-year rating among 798 funds.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Ratings reflect fee waivers in effect; in their absence, ratings may have been lower.

Star ratings are based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The overall rating is a weighted average of the 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) returns. 5 stars = top 10% of funds in an asset category; 4 stars = next 22.5% of funds; 3 stars = next 35%; 2 stars = next 22.5% and 1 star = next 10%. A fund must be in existence three years to be rated. Ratings are subject to change monthly.
