High yielding stocks are often speculative, high-risk investments. These companies can be paying out more than they can support and may reduce their dividends or stop paying dividends at any time, which could have a material adverse effect on the stock price of these companies and the Fund’s performance. PFFD is non-diversified.There is no guarantee dividends will be paid. Companies may reduce or eliminate dividends at any time.
