Small companies tend to have less experienced management, unpredictable earnings growth, and limited product lines, which can cause their share prices to fluctuate more than those of larger firms. The price of equity securities may rise of fall because of changes in the market or changes in a company's financial condition. Equities are subject to market risk, meaning that stock prices in general may decline over short or extended periods of time.
Interest rates may go up, causing the value of the fund's investments to decline. Changes in interest rates, the market's perception of the issuers and the creditworthiness of the issuers may significantly affect the value of a bond.
Investing in high-yield bond funds (junk bonds) may be subject to greater volatility and risks as the income derived from these securities is not guaranteed and may be unpredictable and the value of these securities tends to decline when interest rates increases.
