Annual Breakdown of Distributions...
A portion of the income paid by the Fund is eligible for the inter-corporate Dividend Received Deduction, or DRD. For eligible corporations, the DRD portion of the income is taxed at a lower rate than Non-DRD income. As a result of the tax legislation passed in mid-2003, this portion of income may also qualify for the new 15% tax rate for individuals. The following is a historical breakdown of the distributions by category. Non-DRD income is taxed as ordinary income, and long-term capital gains are taxed at their designated rate. This breakdown only occurs at the end of each year and relies on the full year's data, so the current year cannot be estimated prior to year-end. This information is not a substitute for advice from your tax professional regarding your particular tax status.

Recent Dividend Table...
The following is a partial history of the various distributions of the Fund. An investor must be the owner of the security on the record date in order to receive the distribution. A purchase on the ex-date would generally not result in settlement prior to the record date, which means the purchaser would not receive the distribution for that month.
