The top 10% of funds in each category, the next 22.5%, 35%, 22.5%, and bottom 10% receive 5, 4, 3, 2 or 1 star, respectively. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

Load-waived rating for Class A shares should only be considered by investors who are not subject to a front-end sales charge.
