Returns With Transactional Sales Charge reflect the maximum transactional sales charge that would be payable by an investor upon sale or redemption of units at the end of the applicable period(s). The transactional sales charge includes any initial or deferred sales charges other than the creation and development fee. These returns do not reflect any creation and development fee prior to collection (generally the close of the initial offering period). Any creation and development fee is reflected in the returns as of the time of payment by a trust.

Returns Without Transactional Sales Charge do not reflect any transactional sales charge and do not reflect any creation and development fee prior to collection (generally the close of the initial offering period). Any creation and development fee is reflected in the returns as of the time of payment by a trust.

Returns are cumulative total returns (not annualized) unless labeled as average annual returns. Distribution Received in Cash returns reflect trust expenses as incurred and assume income and principal distributions are recognized on the ex-dividend date and paid out in cash on the payable date. Distributions Reinvested returns reflect trust expenses as incurred and assume income and principal distributions are recognized on the ex-dividend date and reinvested on the reinvestment date.

Past performance is no indication of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Units when redeemed may be worth more or less than their original cost.

All returns are historical and do not represent potential future performance. A trust’s performance, especially for short time periods, should not be the sole factor in making your investment decision.

Risk Considerations
Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. This Trust is unmanaged and there is no guarantee that the Trust’s investment objectives will be achieved. Common stocks do not assure dividend payments. Dividends are paid only when declared by an issuer’s board of directors and the amount of any dividend may vary over time. A portfolio concentrated in a single market sector may present more risk than a portfolio broadly diversified over several sectors. This Trust is concentrated in the consumer products sector. Some of the general risks of companies in the consumer products sectors include cyclicality of revenues and earnings, economic recession, currency fluctuations, changing consumer tastes, extensive competition, product liability litigation and increased government regulation. This Trust is also concentrated in the information technology sector. There are certain risks specific to information technology stocks such as volatile stock prices, rapid product obsolescence, and speculative trading. The investment strategy of the Trust seeks to replicate the Basket as of a specific date using a variation of the mathematical model used by the Basket sponsor. The stocks in the portfolio may not be weighted in the same manner as the Basket and the portfolio will not be rebalanced over time to match the Basket. Stocks of mid-cap companies are often more volatile than those of larger companies as a result of several factors such as limited trading volumes, products or financial resources, management inexperience and less publicly available information. Non-U.S. investments involve additional risks, including currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, lack of liquidity and differing legal and accounting standards. These risks are magnified in emerging markets. These and other risk considerations, such as various business, market, and investment risks are described in detail in the Trust’s prospectus.
