There are risks involved with investing, including possible loss of principal. The Funds are non-diversified and may invest a greater portion of their assets in securities of a small number of issuers which may have an adverse effect on Fund performance. Concentration in a particular industry or sector will subject the Funds to loss due to adverse occurrences that may affect that industry or sector. The Funds risk not benefiting from potential increases in the value of underlying securities above the exercise prices of the written covered call options, and are subject to the risk of declines in the value of such securities. Each sector fund is subject to its own specific risk factors. See prospectus for specific risks regarding each Fund and sector.
An option is a contract sold by one party to another that gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy (call) or sell (put) a stock at an agreed upon price within a certain period or on a specific date. A covered call option involves holding a long position in a particular asset, in this case U.S. common equities, and writing a call option on that same asset with the goal of realizing additional income from the option premium.
