  Investment Objective & Strategy  
The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation.
The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in the common stocks of companies engaged in the research, development, production, or distribution of products or services related to health care, medicine, or the life sciences (collectively termed "health sciences"). While the fund can invest in companies of any size, the majority of fund assets are expected to be invested in large- and mid-capitalization companies.
  Morningstar Category: Health
Health portfolios focus on the medical and health-care industries. Most invest in a range of companies, buying everything from pharmaceutical and medical-device makers to HMOs, hospitals, and nursing homes. A few portfolios concentrate on just one industry segment, such as service providers or biotechnology firms. 
  Investment Risks
Sector Funds: Funds that invest exclusively in one sector or industry involve risks due to the lack of industry diversification and expose the investor to increased industry-specific risks.
