Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.
Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer.
Stock markets are volatile and can fluctuate significantly in response to company, industry, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Investing in stock involves risks, including the loss of principal.
Foreign markets can be more volatile than U.S. markets due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, market or economic developments, all of which are magnified in emerging markets. These risks are particularly significant for funds that focus on a single country or region.
Because of their narrow focus, sector funds tend to be more volatile than funds that diversify across many sectors and companies.
Performance of the Fidelity Advisor Income Replacement Funds depends on the performance of their underlying Fidelity funds, which carry their own risks, including the volatility associated with investing in high-yield, small-cap, and foreign securities.
Shareholders may be subject to certain short-term trading fees. Please consult the prospectus for further information.
