The Hodges Small Cap Fund retail class and Hodges Equity Income Fund retail class appeared in the November 2011 Wall Street Journal Category Kings in the small cap core and equity income categories, respectively. In addition, the Hodges Small Cap FUnd retail class appared in the April 2012 Wall Street Journal Category Kings in the small cap core category.

Wall Street Journal rankings are based on Lipper data. However, the WSJ only considers the largest class of a fund in their ‘pool’ of funds for any particular category, whereas Lipper counts every class of a fund as a separate ranking entity. Because the number of funds in the WSJ ranking category may be smaller than the Lipper category, the WSJ ranking for the fund may be higher than the Lipper ranking.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. The Funds may invest in small- and medium-capitalization companies, which involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility. Investments in foreign securities and emerging markets involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. The use of options and future contracts have special risks such as unlimited losses of the underlying holdings due to unanticipated market movements and failure to correctly predict the direction of securities prices, interest rates and currency exchange rates. Funds that make short sales of securities involve the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Funds that are non-diversified are more exposed to individual stock volatility than a diversified fund. Investments in companies that demonstrate special situations or turnarounds, meaning companies that have experienced significant business problems but are believed to have favorable prospects for recovery, involve greater risk.
