  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation.
The Portfolio invests in stocks considered to have above-average earnings growth potential that is not reflected in their current market prices. It consists predominantly of large- and mid-capitalization stocks.
  Morningstar Category: Large Blend
Large-blend portfolios are fairly representative of the overall US stock market in size, growth rates and price. Stocks in the top 70% of the capitalization of the US equity market are defined as large cap. The blend style is assigned to portfolios where neither growth nor value characteristics predominate. These portfolios tend to invest across the spectrum of US industries, and owing to their broad exposure, the portfolios' returns are often similar to those of the S&P 500 Index. 
  Investment Risks
There are no additional fund specific investment risks (e.g. liquidity risk, currency risk, foreign investment risk, etc.) associated with this fund beyond the normal risks generally associated with investing in a mutual fund.
