About Accounting and Governance Risk

The Accounting and Governance Risk (AGR®) Rating & Score is provided by an independent risk research firm, GMI. AGR is widely recognized as a confidence level indicator in the company's management and reported financials.

Scores range from 0 to 100, which correspond to a risk classification for each company ranging from "Very Aggressive" to "Conservative". This percentile ranking represents the stock's AGR Score ranking among the approximately 8,000 companies rated by Audit Integrity. The Industry Percentile is the stock's AGR Score ranking among the companies in the stock's industry. Through continued backtesting, GMI has demonstrated a strong correlation between its quarterly AGR Score and the likelihood of adverse events, including securities class action litigation, financial restatements, regulatory enforcement actions and stock price declines. The AGR Score can help investors to manage risk or enhance investment performance.

As with all your investments through Fidelity, you must make your own determination whether an investment is appropriate for you. Fidelity is not recommending or endorsing this security by making it available to customers. You should conduct research and perform a thorough investigation as to the characteristics of any securities you intend to purchase. Before investing, you should read the prospectus, offering circular, indenture, or similar document carefully for a full description of the product, including its features and risks, to determine whether it is an appropriate investment for your investment objectives, risk tolerance, financial situation and other individual factors, and be sure to re-evaluate those factors on a periodic basis.

Performance data shown represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance data quoted. Yield and return will vary, therefore, you may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares.


Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Growth stocks can be more volatile than other types of stocks. Value stocks can continue to be undervalued by the market for long periods of time. Foreign securities are subject to interest-rate, currency-exchange-rate, economic, and political risks, all of which are magnified in emerging markets. Illiquidity is an inherent risk associated with investing in real estate and REITs. There is no guarantee the issuer of a REIT will maintain the secondary market for its shares and redemptions may be at a price which is more or less than the original price paid. Closed-end funds can trade at a discount to their NAV. Shareholders of Master Limited Partnerships may be treated as partners for tax purposes. Partnerships issue a Schedule K-1 (Form 1065) rather than a Form 1099 form for tax purposes. It lists the partner's share of income, deductions, credits, etc. Speak with your tax advisor to determine how this may affect you. A royalty trust is a type of corporation, mostly in the United States or Canada, usually involved in oil and gas production or mining. Royalty trusts may have special tax treatment, so you should consult a tax advisor on the potential tax consequences of investing in them.
