Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Mutual Funds involve risk including the possible loss of principal. A higher portfolio turnover due to active and frequent trading will result in higher transactional and brokerage costs. Large-capitalization companies usually cannot respond as quickly as smaller companies due to competitive challenges, and their growth tends to lag the growth of well-managed smaller companies during strong economic periods.
