Performance displayed represents past performance which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized. Performance shown reflects maximum sales charges or contingent deferred sales charges (CDSC) as applicable. Class A-shares have a maximum sales charge of 4.75%. Class C-shares have a maximum CDSC of 1% for shares redeemed within 12 months of purchase.

Data is subject to change on a daily basis. Partial year returns are cumulative, not annualized. Returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends. The securities mentioned are provided for informational purposes only and should not be deemed as a recommendation to buy or sell.

Total annual operating expenses vary by share class. See the prospectus for information on the fees and expenses that apply to each share class.

This fund may not be suitable for all investors. •The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements will expose the fund to additional risks that they would not be subject to if it invested directly in the securities underlying those derivatives. •A highly liquid secondary market may not exist for the credit default swaps the fund invests in, and there can be no assurance that a highly liquid secondary market will develop. The fund’s market value will change in response to interest rate changes and market conditions among other factors. You may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. •In general, bond prices rise when interest rates fall, and vice versa. The fund’s exposure to the high yield bond market may subject the fund to greater volatility because (i) the fund will be affected by the ability of high yield security issuers’ ability to make principal and interest payments and (ii) the prices of derivatives linked to high yield bonds may fluctuate unpredictably and not necessarily in relation to interest rates. •It is important to note that the fund is not guaranteed by the U.S. Government. •Investing in the Inverse High Yield Strategy Fund involves certain risks, which include volatility due to the Fund’s possible use of short sales of security and derivatives such as options and futures. •This fund is subject to active trading risks, which may increase volatility due to the funds’s ability to achieve its investment objective and may decrease the fund’s performance. •This fund is considered nondiversified and can invest a greater portion of its assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund.
