For the periods ending June 30, 2015, the Focused Dividend Strategy Portfolio’s Morningstar Overall, 5-, and 10-year ratings are 5 stars and its 3-year rating is 3 stars. Overall Rating is based out of 1,185 funds in the Large Value category. The Fund ranked #16 out of 1,381 funds for 1 year, #411 out of 1,185 funds for 3 years, #21 out of 1,045 funds for 5 years and #2 out of 734 funds for 10 years. Morningstar is an independent investment research firm that rates the performance of mutual funds based on return and risk. For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variations 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. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.) The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar Rating is for the A share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
