Leveraged Mutual Funds typically use derivatives to attempt to multiply the returns of the underlying index each day or month. These funds trade much differently than other mutual funds. They have the propensity to be more volatile and are inherently riskier than their non-leveraged counterparts. It is important to remember that these funds are generally designed for short-term use only, and are generally not intended to be buy-and-hold positions, because their returns over longer periods generally do not match the mutual fundâ€™s multiple of the underlying index over those periods. These funds are not appropriate for most investors.
Inverse mutual funds typically use derivatives to attempt to move in the opposite direction of the underlying index by a certain multiple each day or month. They generally have either a negative number like â€1x or â€2x or a term like â€œshortâ€ or â€œinverseâ€ in their names. These funds trade much differently than other mutual funds. They have the propensity to be more volatile and are inherently riskier than their non-inverse counterparts. It is important to remember that these funds are designed for short-term use only, and are not intended to be buy-and-hold positions, because their returns over longer periods generally do not match the mutual fundâ€™s negative multiple of the underlying index over longer periods. These funds are not appropriate for most investors.
Foreign large-blend funds invest in a variety of big international stocks. Most of these funds divide their assets among a dozen or more developed markets, including Japan, Britain, France, and Germany.

The Morningstar Rating&153 for funds, or star rating, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed products monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product 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 for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Morningstar Ratings do not take into account sales loads that may apply to certain third party funds.. The Overall Morningstar Ratings are derived from a weighted average of the risk adjusted performance figures associated with a Funds 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating&153 metrics.
Leveraged mutual funds seek to provide a multiple of the investment returns of a given index or benchmark on a daily or monthly basis. Inverse mutual funds seek to provide the opposite of the investment returns, also daily or monthly, of a given index or benchmark, either in whole or by multiples. Due to the effects of compounding, aggressive techniques, and possible correlation errors, leveraged and inverse funds may experience greater losses than one would ordinarily expect. Compounding can also cause a widening differential between the performances of a fund and its underlying index or benchmark, so that returns over periods longer than the stated reset period can differ in amount and direction from the target return of the same period. Consequently, these funds may experience losses even in situations where the underlying index or benchmark has performed as hoped. Aggressive investment techniques such as futures, forward contracts, swap agreements, derivatives, options, can increase fund volatility and decrease performance. Investors holding these funds should therefore monitor their positions as frequently as daily.
