The performance of this portfolio was enhanced substantially by its participation in initial public offerings (IPOs) in 2014. Such opportunities may not be available in the future, and as the portfolio assets grow, the impact of IPOs on the portfolio performance likely will be reduced. Share price, principal value, yield and return will vary, and you may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares.
