The Select Stock Baskets portfolios invest in common stocks of U.S. companies, which are a type of equity security that represents an ownership interest in a corporation. Common stocks are subject to greater fluctuations in market value than other asset classes as a result of such factors as a company’s business performance, investor perceptions, stock market trends and general economic conditions. During some periods, the securities of small- and mid-cap companies, as a class, have performed better than the securities of large companies, and in some periods they have performed worse. Stocks of small- and mid-cap companies tend to be more volatile and less liquid than stocks of large companies. Small- and mid-cap companies, as compared with large companies, may have a shorter history of operations, may not have as a great an ability to raise additional capital; may have a less diversified product line, making them susceptible to market pressure; and may have a smaller public market for their shares.
