    What NOT to buy at office-supply retailers

    MarketWatch – 02/24/2015

    If you're looking for deals-- even on basic stuff for work-- you may want to look beyond your neighborhood office supply store. Office supply stores in the U.S. raked in nearly $20 billion in revenue in 2014, according to research firm IBISWorld. While that's certainly significant, it's been declining mostly thanks to recessionary factors like weak consumer confidence and low disposable incomes, but also thanks to the "growing popularity" of discount and other retailers that may...

About Environmental, Social & Governance Summary (ESG)

GMI ESG Ratings

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Flags: GMI Ratings publishes Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) ratings on over 6,000 companies worldwide. These ratings provide an independent assessment of the sustainable investment value of public companies. The ESG Ratings model is based on a carefully crafted and applied list of KeyMetrics® that result in an overall ESG concern level as expressed by Red (High Concern), Yellow (Average Concern), and Green (Low Concern) flags. Unlike traditional ESG risk models, GMI's rating methodology is designed to identify risks most likely to affect equity valuations. Specifically, these ratings reflect actual corporate behaviors rather than policies or affirmations of intent to adhere to best ESG practices. Further, unlike other models with evenly weighted metrics, we assign context-sensitive relative weightings to our key metrics, based on market, regional, ownership or sector differences. Individual company scores are then assigned as a percentile rank, ranging from 1 (worst ranked) to 100 (best) on the basis of these KeyMetrics® and then converted to the Red, Yellow or Green flag designation.

Company Reports: In addition to a company's overall risk rating, ESG reports also include an industry rating based on a comparison between the company's risk levels in each ESG component area relative to its industry peers. Further, the ESG analysis serves as a summary of behavioral events that contributed to the company's overall risk level.

GMI Accounting and Governance Risk (AGR) Score & Rating

The GMI Accounting and Governance Risk (AGR) Score & Rating is widely recognized as an indicator of the confidence level surrounding a company's management and reported financials.

Scores range from 0 to 100, and correspond to a risk classification for each company ranging from "Very Aggressive" to "Conservative." The AGR Score is a percentile ranking among the approximately 8,000 companies rated by GMI. Through continued back-testing, 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. Thus, a company's AGR Score can help investors looking to manage risk or enhance investment performance. GMI forensically analyzes the financial reporting and governance practices of over 8,000 North American-based publicly traded companies.

About GMI

GMI is an independent risk research firm which provides a statistically modeled assessment of corporate integrity. Founded in 2002 in direct response to the growing number of scandals, lawsuits and investor losses resulting from fraudulent corporate behavior, the firm identifies potential high-risk company accounting and governance activity, which in turn has been historically correlated to stock price declines, securities class-action litigation, and material financial restatements. The product of GMI's analysis is a unique risk measure - the AGR Score which can be used by investors as a way to more effectively manage corporate risk.

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.

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.
