An investment in this unmanaged unit investment trust should be made with an understanding of the risks involved with owning common stocks, 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.
You should be aware that the portfolio is concentrated in stocks in the industrials sector making it subject to additional risks, including limited diversification. The companies engaged in the industrials sector are subject to certain risks, including a deterioration in the general state of the economy, intense competition, domestic and international politics, excess capacity and changing spending trends.
The trust also invests in companies in the financials sector. The companies
engaged in the financials sector are subject to the adverse effects of
volatile interest rates, economic recession, decreases in the availability of
capital, increased competition from new entrants in the field, and
potential increased regulation.
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.
This UIT is a buy and hold strategy and investors should consider their ability to hold the trust until maturity. There may be tax consequences unless units are purchased in an IRA or other qualified plan.
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.
As the use of Internet technology has become more prevalent in
the course of business, the trust has become more susceptible to
potential operational risks through breaches in cyber security.
