Morningstar Ratings & Rankings

As Of: 5/31/15

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar RatingTM based on a Morningstar Risk- Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance.

The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating is derived from a weighted-average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and ten-year, (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. ©2003 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Morningstar Ratings based on Risk Adjusted Returns.
The highest or most favorable Morningstar percentile rank is 1 and the lowest percentile rank is 100. The top-performing fund in a category will always receive a rank of 1. Various rating agencies categorize funds differently. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
