* Information Regarding Sales Charge Reductions and Waivers >

Returns quoted are past performance and do not guarantee future results; current performance may be lower or higher. Investment returns and principal value will vary; there may be a gain or loss when shares are sold.


Net expense ratios reflect the expense waiver, if any, Janus Capital has contractually agreed to through 2/1/15.


Performance shown for Class A Shares at Maximum Offering Price (MOP) includes the Fund's maximum sales charge of 5.75%. Performance shown at Net Asset Value (NAV) does not include this sales charge and would have been lower had this sales charge been taken into account.

Please consider the charges, risks, expenses and investment objectives carefully before investing. Please see a prospectus, or if available, a summary prospectus containing this and other information. Read it carefully before you invest or send money.


Returns include reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.


The use of short sales may cause the fund to have higher expenses than those of other equity funds. Short sales are speculative transactions and involve special risks, including a greater reliance on the investment team's ability to accurately anticipate the future value of a security. The Fund's losses are potentially unlimited in a short sale transaction. The Fund's use of short sales in effect leverages the Fund's portfolio. The Fund's use of leverage may result in risks and can magnify the effect of any losses. There is no assurance that a leveraging strategy will be successful.


The performance shown for Class A Shares for periods prior to 5/6/11, reflects the performance of the Fund's Class T Shares, calculated using the fees and expenses of each respective share class without the effect of any fee and expense limitations or waivers. If each share class of the Fund had been available during periods prior to 5/6/11, the performance shown may have been different. Please refer to the Fund's prospectus for further details concerning historical performance.


©2014 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved.


For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of the funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Morningstar Rating™ may differ among share classes of a mutual fund as a result of different sales loads and/or expense structures. It may be based, in part, on the performance of a predecessor Fund.


Ratings and Rankings are for the share class shown only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.


The Morningstar Style BoxTM reveals a fund's investment strategy. For equity funds the vertical axis shows the market capitalization of the stocks owned and the horizontal axis shows investment style (value, blend or growth).


A Fund's portfolio may differ significantly from the securities held in the index. The index is unmanaged and not available for direct investment; therefore its performance does not reflect the expenses associated with the active management of an actual portfolio.
