STA Verdict



The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the NASDAQ AlphaDEX(R) Total US Market Index. The fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in common stocks that comprise the index. The advisor, using an "indexing" investment approach, attempts to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the index. The index is a modified equal-dollar weighted index, comprised of U.S. exchange-listed securities of companies with capital appreciation potential.
