Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. The Fund may invest in bonds, which will decline in value as interest rates rise. The Fund uses investment techniques that are different from the risks ordinarily associated with equity investments. Such techniques and strategies include the use of derivatives, short sales, and leverage and investments in commodity-linked securities and foreign securities. Derivatives are often more volatile than other investments and may magnify the Fund's gains or losses. Commodity linked securities can be more volatile and less liquid than the underlying commodities themselves and the use of leverage may accelerate the velocity of potential losses.
