*   Portfolio holdings and weightings are historical and are presented here for informational purposes only. They are subject to change at any time.
** The difference between total assets and net assets, if any, is due primarily to the Fund's use of borrowings and other liabilities; net assets do not include borrowings. The Fund may employ leverage in the form of loans, preferred stock and/or other instruments. When the Fund engages in transactions that have a leveraging effect on the Fund's portfolio, the value of the Fund will be more volatile and all other risks will tend to be compounded.
*** Percentages are based on total assets.
