At a glance:
The S&P MidCap is made up of medium-sized companies, which many investors
believe to have superior growth potential.
The stocks in the Fund represent roughly 8% of the U.S. equity
markets on a market capitalization basis.
The diverse portfolio invests in each major market sector,
giving the investor diversification across 400 U.S. stocks.
The stocks held by the Fund are different than those included
in the S&P 500 and S&P SmallCap Funds. Therefore, it
represents a diversification opportunity for investors in our
other index funds.
This Fund seeks investment results that correspond to the total return
of publicly traded, medium-sized companies as represented by the Standard & Poor's
MidCap 400 Index.

If you are looking for a diversified stock fund, this Fund may be right
