    The investment seeks long-term growth of capital. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in equity securities of companies in the healthcare sector. It invests significantly in early-stage companies within the healthcare equipment and supplies, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and life sciences industries that are not yet consistently profitable.

    This information shows differences between the per share net asset value (NAV) of the Fund and the market price of shares. For premiums and discounts reflected for dates prior to 11/02/2020, the market price utilized is the midpoint of the highest bid and lowest offer for Fund shares as of close of trading on the exchange where Fund shares are listed. For premiums and discounts reflected for dates beginning on 11/02/2020, the market price utilized is the official closing price of the Fund shares, or if it more accurately reflects the market value of the Fund shares at the time as of which the Fund share’s NAV is calculated, the price that is the midpoint between the national best bid and national best offer as of that time. Timing discrepancies may exist between NAV and closing price. Shareholders may pay more than net asset value when they buy Fund shares and receive less than net asset value when they sell those shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices.
