^ There is no guarantee the issuers of the securities included in the trust will declare dividends or distributions in the future. The historical 12-month distribution per unit and historical 12-month distribution rate of the securities included in the trust are for illustrative purposes only and are not indicative of the trust's distribution or distribution rate. Due to the negative economic impact across many industries caused by the recent COVID-19 outbreak, certain issuers of the securities included in the trust may elect to reduce the amount of dividends and/or distributions paid in the future. As a result, the "Historical 12-Month Distribution Rate of Trust Holdings," which is based on the trailing twelve-month distributions paid by the securities included in a trust, will likely be higher, and in some cases significantly higher, than the actual distribution rate achieved by the trust. The historical 12-month distribution per unit is based on the weighted average of the trailing twelve month distributions paid by the securities included in the portfolio. The historical 12-month distribution rate is calculated by dividing the historical 12-month distributions by the trust's offering price. The historical 12-month distribution and rate are reduced to account for the effects of fees and expenses, which will be incurred when investing in a trust. Certain of the issuers may have reduced their dividends or distributions over the prior twelve months. The distribution per unit and rate paid by the trust may be higher or lower than the amount shown above due to certain factors that may include, but are not limited to, a change in the dividends or distributions paid by issuers, actual expenses incurred, or the sale of securities in the portfolio. For trusts that include funds, distributions may include realized short term capital gains, realized long-term capital gains and/or return of capital. PLEASE NOTE: For trusts that hold preferred securities, the historical distribution rate is calculated using only the holdings that have 12 months of distribution history. Any holdings without a 12 month history of dividends were excluded from the calculation.

Risk Considerations

Equity Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing common stocks is subject to certain risks, such as an economic recession and the possible deterioration of either the financial condition of the issuers of the equity securities or the general condition of the stock market.

COVID-19 Economic Impact Risk. The recent outbreak of a respiratory disease designated as COVID-19 was first detected in China in December 2019. The global economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is impossible to predict but is expected to disrupt manufacturing, supply chains and sales in affected areas and negatively impact global economic growth prospects. The COVID-19 outbreak has also caused significant volatility and declines in global financial markets, which have caused losses for investors. The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak may be short term or may last for an extended period of time, and in either case could result in a substantial economic downturn or recession.

Small-Cap and Mid-Cap Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing small-cap and mid-cap companies is subject to additional risks, as the share prices of small-cap companies and certain mid-cap companies are often more volatile than those of larger companies due to several factors, including limited trading volumes, products, financial resources, management inexperience and less publicly available information.

Term Risk - 15 months. Although this unit investment trust terminates in approximately 15 months, the strategy is long-term. Investors should consider their ability to pursue investing in successive portfolios, if available. There may be tax consequences unless units are purchased in an IRA or other qualified plan.

Volatility Risk. The value of the securities held by the trust may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in performance or perception of the issuers.

The style and capitalization characteristics used to describe the stocks are designed to help you understand how they fit into your overall investment plan. Due to changes in the value of the stocks the characteristics may vary over time. In general, growth stocks have high relative price-to-book ratios while value stocks have low relative price-to-book ratios. In determining market capitalization characteristics, we analyze the market capitalizations of the 3,000 largest stocks in the U.S. (excluding foreign securities, ADRs, limited partnerships and regulated investment companies) on a monthly basis. Companies with market capitalizations among the largest 10% are considered Large-Cap securities, the next 20% are considered Mid-Cap securities and the remaining securities are considered Small-Cap securities.
