Capital gain distributions vs. capital gains on sale or exchange of shares

Capital gain distributions paid by a fund should not be confused with capital gains you may realize when you sell or exchange mutual fund shares. If you sold or exchanged fund shares, your capital gain or loss depends on your cost basis for those shares. For more information about calculating your capital gain or loss on shares you sold or exchanged, please refer to the 1099-B Tax Guide (PDF).

Investors should carefully consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other important information is contained in the fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses, which can be obtained from a financial professional and should be read carefully before investing.
