1The Fund estimates that it has distributed more than its income and net-realized capital gains in the current fiscal year; therefore, a portion of your distribution may be a return of capital. A return of capital may occur, for example, when some or all of the shareholder’s investment is paid back to the shareholder. A return of capital distribution does not necessarily reflect a Fund's investment performance and should not be confused with ‘yield’ or ‘income’. When distributions exceed total return performance, the difference will reduce the Fund’s net asset value per share.
The amounts and sources of distributions reported are only estimates and are not provided for tax reporting purposes. The actual amounts and sources of the amounts for tax reporting purposes will depend upon each Fund’s investment experience during the remainder of its fiscal year and may be subject to changes based on tax regulations. The Funds will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes.
|Fund Performance and Distribution Rate Information:|
|Fund||Average annual total return (in relation to NAV) for the 5-year period ending on 09/30/2014||Annualized current distribution rate expressed as a percentage of NAV as of 09/30/2014||Cumulative total return (in relation to NAV) for the fiscal year through 09/30/2014||Cumulative fiscal year distributions as a percentage of NAV as of 09/30/2014|
*Portfolio launched within the past 5 years; this represents the average annual total return (in relation to NAV) from inception to 09/30/2014.
Shareholders should not draw any conclusions about a Fund’s investment performance from the amount of the Fund’s current distributions or from the terms of the Fund’s Plan.

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: Auto ABS Index: In the Auto ABS Driver's Seathttp://www.fitchratings.com/creditdesk/reports/report_frame.cfm?rpt_id=804268
Delinquencies and losses climbed for U.S. auto ABS during third-quarter 2014 (3Q'14) following typical fall season patterns, with the slowdown likely to continue this quarter and into next year, according to Fitch Ratings in its latest quarterly auto ABS index.
Though still within Fitch's initial expectations, subprime auto ABS losses reached levels not seen in four years last month. Additionally, used vehicle values have fallen for five straight months. 'While still healthy, the wholesale auto market will be pressured from rising volumes into 2015,' said Senior Director Hylton Heard.
Lease residuals are also seeing some pressure. Auto lease ABS residual values (RV) losses rose in 3Q'14, with some platforms now seeing losses for the first time in several years. Fitch's RV Index declined to a 2.1% gain through 3Q2014, down from 8.4% through Q2.
Not surprisingly, increased market competition is contributing to the recent market volatility. 'With auto lenders jostling for market share, both underwriting and credit quality will suffer if lenders look to expand share and grow their portfolios aggressively,' said Heard.
The U.S. Auto ABS Index report is part of Fitch's series of structured finance index reports. The index reports are updated quarterly and are available at 'www.fitchratings.com' or by clicking on the above link.
