Fund Summary - continued

This example helps compare the cost of investing in the fund with the cost of investing in other mutual funds.

Let's say, hypothetically, that the annual return for shares of the fund is 5% and that your shareholder fees and the annual operating expenses for shares of the fund are exactly as described in the fee table. This example illustrates the effect of fees and expenses, but is not meant to suggest actual or expected fees and expenses or returns, all of which may vary. For every $10,000 you invested, here's how much you would pay in total expenses if you sell all of your shares at the end of each time period indicated and if you hold your shares:

Portfolio Turnover

The fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual operating expenses or in the example, affect the fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the fund's portfolio turnover rate was [__]% of the average value of its portfolio.

Principal Investment Strategies

  • Normally investing primarily in common stocks.
  • Normally investing at least 80% of assets in securities of companies with medium market capitalizations (which, for purposes of this fund, are those companies with market capitalizations similar to companies in the Russell Midcap® Index or the Standard & Poor's MidCap® 400 Index (S&P® MidCap 400)).
  • Potentially investing in companies with smaller or larger market capitalizations.
  • Investing in securities of companies that Fidelity Management & Research Company (FMR) believes are undervalued in the marketplace in relation to factors such as assets, sales, earnings, growth potential, or cash flow, or in relation to securities of other companies in the same industry (stocks of these companies are often called "value" stocks).
  • Using the Russell Midcap Value Index as a guide in structuring the fund and selecting its investments.
  • Investing in domestic and foreign issuers.

Prospectus

  • Using quantitative analysis to evaluate growth potential, valuation, liquidity, and investment risk, along with fundamental analysis of factors such as each issuer's financial condition, its industry position, and market and economic conditions to select investments.

Principal Investment Risks

  • Stock Market Volatility. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Different parts of the market can react differently to these developments.
  • Foreign Exposure. Foreign markets can be more volatile than the U.S. market due to increased risks of adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments and can perform differently from the U.S. market.
  • Issuer-Specific Changes. The value of an individual security or particular type of security can be more volatile than, and can perform differently from, the market as a whole. The value of securities of smaller issuers can be more volatile than that of larger issuers.
  • "Value" Investing. "Value" stocks can perform differently from the market as a whole and other types of stocks and can continue to be undervalued by the market for long periods of time.
  • Quantitative Investing. Securities selected using quantitative analysis can perform differently from the market as a whole as a result of the factors used in the analysis, the weight placed on each factor, and changes in the factors' historical trends.
  • Mid Cap Investing. The value of securities of medium size, less well-known issuers can perform differently from the market as a whole and other types of stocks and can be more volatile than that of larger issuers.

An investment in the fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. You could lose money by investing in the fund.

Performance

The following information is intended to help you understand the risks of investing in the fund.

Fund Basics

Investment Objective

The fund seeks long-term growth of capital.

Principal Investment Strategies

FMR normally invests the fund's assets primarily in common stocks.

FMR normally invests at least 80% of the fund's assets in securities of companies with medium market capitalizations. Although a universal definition of medium market capitalization companies does not exist, for purposes of this fund, FMR generally defines medium market capitalization companies as those whose market capitalization is similar to the market capitalization of companies in the Russell Midcap Index or the S&P MidCap 400. A company's market capitalization is based on its current market capitalization or its market capitalization at the time of the fund's investment. The size of the companies in each index changes with market conditions and the composition of the index. FMR may also invest the fund's assets in companies with smaller or larger market capitalizations.

FMR invests in companies that it believes are undervalued in the marketplace in relation to factors such as the company's assets, sales, earnings, growth potential, or cash flow, or in relation to securities of other companies in the same industry. Companies with these characteristics tend to have lower than average price/book (P/B), price/sales (P/S), or price/earnings (P/E) ratios. The stocks of these companies are often called "value" stocks.

FMR uses the Russell Midcap Value Index as a guide in structuring the fund and selecting its investments. FMR considers the fund's security, industry, and market capitalization weightings relative to the index.

FMR may invest the fund's assets in securities of foreign issuers in addition to securities of domestic issuers.

In buying and selling securities for the fund, FMR uses a disciplined approach that involves both quantitative and fundamental analysis. Quantitative analysis refers to programmatic models that analyze such factors as growth potential, valuation, liquidity, and investment risk based on data inputs. Fundamental analysis involves a bottom-up assessment of a company's potential for success in light of factors including its financial condition, earnings outlook, strategy, management, industry position, and economic and market conditions.

In addition to the principal investment strategies discussed above, FMR may lend the fund's securities to broker-dealers or other institutions to earn income for the fund.

FMR may also use various techniques, such as buying and selling futures contracts and exchange traded funds, to increase or decrease the fund's exposure to changing security prices or other factors that affect security values. If FMR's strategies do not work as intended, the fund may not achieve its objective.

Prospectus

Description of Principal Security Types

Equity securities represent an ownership interest, or the right to acquire an ownership interest, in an issuer. Different types of equity securities provide different voting and dividend rights and priority in the event of the bankruptcy of the issuer. Equity securities include common stocks, preferred stocks, convertible securities, and warrants.

Principal Investment Risks

Many factors affect the fund's performance. The fund's share price changes daily based on changes in market conditions and interest rates and in response to other economic, political, or financial developments. The fund's reaction to these developments will be affected by the types of securities in which the fund invests, the financial condition, industry and economic sector, and geographic location of an issuer, and the fund's level of investment in the securities of that issuer. When you sell your shares they may be worth more or less than what you paid for them, which means that you could lose money by investing in the fund.

The following factors can significantly affect the fund's performance:

Stock Market Volatility. The value of equity securities fluctuates in response to issuer, political, market, and economic developments. Fluctuations can be dramatic over the short as well as long term, and different parts of the market and different types of equity securities can react differently to these developments. For example, large cap stocks can react differently from small cap stocks, and "growth" stocks can react differently from "value" stocks. Issuer, political, or economic developments can affect a single issuer, issuers within an industry or economic sector or geographic region, or the market as a whole. Changes in the financial condition of a single issuer can impact the market as a whole. Terrorism and related geo-political risks have led, and may in the future lead, to increased short-term market volatility and may have adverse long-term effects on world economies and markets generally.

Foreign Exposure. Foreign securities, foreign currencies, and securities issued by U.S. entities with substantial foreign operations can involve additional risks relating to political, economic, or regulatory conditions in foreign countries. These risks include fluctuations in foreign currencies; withholding or other taxes; trading, settlement, custodial, and other operational risks; and the less stringent investor protection and disclosure standards of some foreign markets. All of these factors can make foreign investments, especially those in emerging markets, more volatile and potentially less liquid than U.S. investments. In addition, foreign markets can perform differently from the U.S. market.

Issuer-Specific Changes. Changes in the financial condition of an issuer or counterparty, changes in specific economic or political conditions that affect a particular type of security or issuer, and changes in general economic or political conditions can increase the risk of default by an issuer or counterparty, which can affect a security's or instrument's value. The value of securities of smaller, less well-known issuers can be more volatile than that of larger issuers.

Prospectus

Fund Basics - continued

"Value" Investing. "Value" stocks can react differently to issuer, political, market, and economic developments than the market as a whole and other types of stocks. "Value" stocks tend to be inexpensive relative to their earnings or assets compared to other types of stocks. However, "value" stocks can continue to be inexpensive for long periods of time and may not ever realize their full value.

Quantitative Investing. The value of securities selected using quantitative analysis can react differently to issuer, political, market, and economic developments than the market as a whole or securities selected using only fundamental analysis. The factors used in quantitative analysis and the weight placed on those factors may not be predictive of a security's value. In addition, factors that affect a security's value can change over time and these changes may not be reflected in the quantitative model.

Mid Cap Investing. The value of securities of medium size, less well-known issuers can be more volatile than that of relatively larger issuers and can react differently to issuer, political, market, and economic developments than the market as a whole and other types of stocks.

In response to market, economic, political, or other conditions, FMR may temporarily use a different investment strategy for defensive purposes. If FMR does so, different factors could affect the fund's performance and the fund may not achieve its investment objective.

Fundamental Investment Policies

The following policy is fundamental, that is, subject to change only by shareholder approval:

The fund seeks long-term growth of capital.

Shareholder Notice

The following policy is subject to change only upon 60 days' prior notice to shareholders:

The fund normally invests at least 80% of its assets in securities of companies with medium market capitalizations.

Valuing Shares

The fund is open for business each day the NYSE is open.

A class's NAV is the value of a single share. Fidelity normally calculates each class's NAV as of the close of business of the NYSE, normally 4:00 p.m. Eastern time. The fund's assets normally are valued as of this time for the purpose of computing each class's NAV.

NAV is not calculated and the fund will not process purchase and redemption requests submitted on days when the fund is not open for business. The time at which shares are priced and until which purchase and redemption orders are accepted may be changed as permitted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

To the extent that the fund's assets are traded in other markets on days when the fund is not open for business, the value of the fund's assets may be affected on those days. In addition, trading in some of the fund's assets may not occur on days when the fund is open for business.

Prospectus

The fund's assets are valued primarily on the basis of market quotations or official closing prices. Certain short-term securities are valued on the basis of amortized cost. If market quotations or official closing prices are not readily available or do not accurately reflect fair value for a security or if a security's value has been materially affected by events occurring before the fund's pricing time but after the close of the exchange or market on which the security is principally traded, that security will be valued by another method that the Board of Trustees believes accurately reflects fair value in accordance with the Board's fair value pricing policies. For example, arbitrage opportunities may exist when trading in a portfolio security or securities is halted and does not resume before the fund calculates its NAV. These arbitrage opportunities may enable short-term traders to dilute the NAV of long-term investors. Securities trading in overseas markets present time zone arbitrage opportunities when events affecting portfolio security values occur after the close of the overseas market but prior to the close of the U.S. market. Fair value pricing will be used for high yield debt and floating rate loans when available pricing information is determined to be stale or for other reasons not to accurately reflect fair value. To the extent the fund invests in other open-end funds, the fund will calculate its NAV using the NAV of the underlying funds in which it invests as described in the underlying funds' prospectuses. The fund may invest in other Fidelity funds that use the same fair value pricing policies as the fund or in Fidelity money market funds. A security's valuation may differ depending on the method used for determining value. Fair valuation of a fund's portfolio securities can serve to reduce arbitrage opportunities available to short-term traders, but there is no assurance that fair value pricing policies will prevent dilution of the fund's NAV by short-term traders. While the fund has policies regarding excessive trading, these too may not be effective to prevent short-term NAV arbitrage trading, particularly in regard to omnibus accounts.

Prospectus

Shareholder Information

You may buy or sell Class A, Class T, Class B, and Class C shares of the fund through a retirement account or an investment professional. When you invest through a retirement account or an investment professional, the procedures for buying, selling, and exchanging Class A, Class T, Class B, and Class C shares of the fund and the account features and policies may differ. Additional fees may also apply to your investment in Class A, Class T, Class B, and Class C shares of the fund, including a transaction fee if you buy or sell Class A, Class T, Class B, and Class C shares of the fund through a broker or other investment professional.

You should include the following information with any order to buy, sell, or exchange shares:

  • Your name;
  • Your account number;
  • Name of fund whose shares you want to buy or sell; and
  • Dollar amount or number of shares you want to buy or sell.

Certain methods of contacting Fidelity, such as by telephone, may be unavailable or delayed (for example, during periods of unusual market activity).

Excessive Trading Policy

The fund may reject for any reason, or cancel as permitted or required by law, any purchase or exchange, including transactions deemed to represent excessive trading, at any time.

Excessive trading of fund shares can harm shareholders in various ways, including reducing the returns to long-term shareholders by increasing costs to the fund (such as brokerage commissions), disrupting portfolio management strategies, and diluting the value of the shares in cases in which fluctuations in markets are not fully priced into the fund's NAV.

The Board of Trustees has adopted policies designed to discourage excessive trading of fund shares. Excessive trading activity in the fund is measured by the number of roundtrip transactions in a shareholder's account and each class of a multiple class fund is treated separately. A roundtrip transaction occurs when a shareholder sells fund shares (including exchanges) within 30 days of the purchase date.

Shareholders with two or more roundtrip transactions in a single fund within a rolling 90-day period will be blocked from making additional purchases or exchange purchases of the fund for 85 days. Shareholders with four or more roundtrip transactions across all Fidelity funds within any rolling 12-month period will be blocked for at least 85 days from additional purchases or exchange purchases across all Fidelity funds. Any roundtrip within 12 months of the expiration of a multi-fund block will initiate another multi-fund block. Repeat offenders may be subject to long-term or permanent blocks on purchase or exchange purchase transactions in any account under the shareholder's control at any time. In addition to enforcing these roundtrip limitations, the fund may in its discretion restrict, reject, or cancel any purchases or exchanges that, in FMR's opinion, may be disruptive to the management of the fund or otherwise not be in the fund's interests.

Prospectus

Shareholder Information - continued

Exceptions

The following transactions are exempt from the fund's excessive trading policy described above: (i) transactions of $1,000 or less, (ii) systematic withdrawal and/or contribution programs, (iii) mandatory retirement distributions, and (iv) transactions initiated by a plan sponsor or sponsors of certain employee benefit plans or other related accounts. In addition, the fund's excessive trading policy does not apply to transactions initiated by the trustee or adviser to a donor-advised charitable gift fund, qualified fund of fund(s), or other strategy funds. A qualified fund of fund(s) is a mutual fund, qualified tuition program, or other strategy fund consisting of qualified plan assets that either applies the Fidelity fund's excessive trading policies to shareholders at the fund of fund(s) level, or demonstrates that the fund of fund(s) has an investment strategy coupled with policies designed to control frequent trading that are reasonably likely to be effective as determined by the Fidelity fund's Treasurer.

Omnibus Accounts

Omnibus accounts, in which shares are held in the name of an

intermediary on behalf of multiple investors, are a common form of holding shares among retirement plans and financial intermediaries such as brokers, advisers, and third-party administrators. Individual trades in omnibus accounts are often not disclosed to the fund, making it difficult to determine whether a particular shareholder is engaging in excessive trading. Excessive trading in omnibus accounts is likely to go undetected by the fund and may increase costs to the fund and disrupt its portfolio management.

Under policies adopted by the Board of Trustees, intermediaries will be permitted to apply the fund's excessive trading policy (described above), or their own excessive trading policy if approved by FMR. In these cases, the fund will typically not request or receive individual account data but will rely on the intermediary to monitor trading activity in good faith in accordance with its or the fund's policies. Reliance on intermediaries increases the risk that excessive trading may go undetected. For other intermediaries, the fund will generally monitor trading activity at the omnibus account level to attempt to identify disruptive trades, focusing on transactions in excess of $250,000. The fund may request transaction information, as frequently as daily, from any intermediary at any time, and may apply the fund's policy to such transactions exceeding $5,000. The fund may prohibit purchases of fund shares by an intermediary or by some or all of any intermediary's clients. [FMR will apply these policies through a phased implementation.] There is no assurance that FMR will request data with sufficient frequency to detect or deter excessive trading in omnibus accounts effectively.

Prospectus

If you purchase or sell fund shares through a financial intermediary, you may wish to contact the intermediary to determine the policies applicable to your account.

Retirement Plans

For employer-sponsored retirement plans, only participant directed exchanges count toward the roundtrip limits. Employer-sponsored retirement plan participants whose activity triggers a purchase or exchange block will be permitted one trade every calendar quarter. In the event of a block, employer and participant contributions and loan repayments by the participant may still be invested in the fund.

Qualified Wrap Programs

The fund will monitor aggregate trading activity of adviser transactions to attempt to identify excessive trading in qualified wrap programs, as defined below. Excessive trading by an adviser will lead to fund blocks and the wrap program will lose its qualified status. Adviser transactions will not be matched with client-directed transactions unless the wrap program ceases to be a qualified wrap program (but all client-directed transactions will be subject to the fund's excessive trading policy). A qualified wrap program is: (i) a program whose adviser certifies that it has investment discretion over $100 million or more in client assets invested in mutual funds at the time of the certification, (ii) a program in which the adviser directs transactions in the accounts participating in the program in concert with changes in a model portfolio, and (iii) managed by an adviser who agrees to give FMR sufficient information to permit FMR to identify the individual accounts in the wrap program.

Other Information about the Excessive Trading Policy

The fund reserves the right at any time to restrict purchases or exchanges or impose conditions that are more restrictive on excessive or disruptive trading than those stated in this prospectus. The fund's Treasurer is authorized to suspend the fund's policies during periods of severe market turbulence or national emergency. The fund reserves the right to modify its policies at any time without prior notice.

The fund does not knowingly accommodate frequent purchases and redemptions of fund shares by investors, except to the extent permitted by the policies described above.

In addition to these policies, the fund imposes a short-term redemption fee on redemptions from the fund, which is discussed in "Selling Shares." As described in "Valuing Shares," the fund also uses fair value pricing to help reduce arbitrage opportunities available to short-term traders. There is no assurance that the fund's excessive trading policy will be effective, or will successfully detect or deter excessive or disruptive trading.

Buying Shares

The price to buy one share of Class A or Class T is its offering price or its NAV, depending on whether you pay a front-end sales charge.

Prospectus

Shareholder Information - continued

The price to buy one share of Class B or Class C is its NAV. Class B and Class C shares are sold without a front-end sales charge, but may be subject to a CDSC upon redemption.

If you pay a front-end sales charge, your price will be Class A's or Class T's offering price. When you buy Class A or Class T shares at the offering price, Fidelity deducts the appropriate sales charge and invests the rest in Class A or Class T shares of the fund. If you qualify for a front-end sales charge waiver, your price will be Class A's or Class T's NAV.

The offering price of Class A or Class T is its NAV plus the sales charge. The offering price is calculated by dividing Class A's or Class T's NAV by the difference between one and the applicable front-end sales charge percentage and rounding to the nearest cent.

The dollar amount of the sales charge for Class A or Class T is the difference between the offering price of the shares purchased and the NAV of those shares. Since the offering price per share is calculated to the nearest cent using standard rounding criteria, the percentage sales charge you actually pay may be higher or lower than the sales charge percentages shown in this prospectus due to rounding. The impact of rounding may vary with the amount of your investment and the size of the class's NAV.

Your investment professional can help you choose the class of shares that best suits your investment needs.

Your shares will be bought at the offering price or NAV, as applicable, next calculated after your order is received in proper form.

It is the responsibility of your investment professional to transmit your order to buy shares to Fidelity before the close of business on the day you place your order.

The fund has authorized certain intermediaries to accept orders to buy shares on its behalf. When authorized intermediaries receive an order in proper form, the order is considered as being placed with the fund, and shares will be bought at the offering price or NAV, as applicable, next calculated after the order is received by the authorized intermediary. Orders by funds of funds for which FMR or an affiliate serves as investment manager will be treated as received by the fund at the same time that the corresponding orders are received in proper form by the funds of funds.

There is no minimum balance or purchase minimum for (i) certain Fidelity retirement accounts funded through salary deduction, or fund positions opened with the proceeds of distributions from such retirement accounts or from a Fidelity systematic withdrawal service, or (ii) certain mutual fund wrap program accounts. An eligible wrap program must offer asset allocation services, charge an asset-based fee to its participants for asset allocation and/or other advisory services, and meet trading and other operational requirements under an appropriate agreement with FDC. In addition, the fund may waive or lower purchase minimums in other circumstances.

Prospectus

Purchase and balance minimums are waived for purchases of Class T shares with distributions from a Fidelity Defined Trust account.

Purchase amounts of more than $49,999 will not be accepted for Class B shares.

The fund may stop offering shares completely or may offer shares only on a limited basis, for a period of time or permanently.

If your payment is not received and collected, your purchase may be canceled and you could be liable for any losses or fees the fund or Fidelity has incurred.

Shares can be bought or sold through investment professionals using an automated order placement and settlement system that guarantees payment for orders on a specified date.

Certain financial institutions that meet creditworthiness criteria established by FDC may enter confirmed purchase orders on behalf of customers by phone, with payment to follow no later than close of business on the next business day. If payment is not received by that time, the order will be canceled and the financial institution will be liable for any losses.

Under applicable anti-money laundering regulations and other federal regulations, purchase orders may be suspended, restricted, or canceled and the monies may be withheld.

Selling Shares

The price to sell one share of Class A, Class T, Class B, or Class C is its NAV, minus the short-term redemption fee, if applicable, and any applicable CDSC.

If you sell your shares after holding them less than 30 days, a 0.75% short-term redemption fee may be deducted from the redemption amount. For this purpose, shares held longest will be treated as being redeemed first and shares held shortest as being redeemed last. The fees are paid to the fund, not Fidelity, and are designed to help offset the brokerage commissions, market impact, and other costs associated with short-term shareholder trading.

The short-term redemption fee does not apply to: (i) redemptions of shares acquired by reinvesting dividends and distributions; (ii) rollovers, transfers, and changes of account registration within the fund, or transfers between classes of a multiple class fund (if applicable) as long as the money never leaves the fund; and (iii) redemptions in kind.

The fund also permits waivers of the short-term redemption fee for the following transactions:

  • Redemptions related to death or due to a divorce decree;
  • Certain types of IRA account transactions, including: redemptions pursuant to systematic withdrawal programs, withdrawals due to disability, return of excess contribution amounts, and redemptions related to payment of custodian fees; and
  • Certain types of employer-sponsored and 403(b) retirement plan transactions, including: loans or hardship withdrawals, minimum required distributions, redemptions pursuant to systematic withdrawal programs, forfeiture of assets, return of excess contribution amounts, redemptions related to payment of plan fees, and redemptions related to death, disability, or qualified domestic relations order.

The application of short-term redemption fees and waivers may vary among intermediaries and certain intermediaries may not apply the waivers listed above. If you purchase or sell fund shares through an intermediary, you should contact your intermediary for more information on whether the short-term redemption fee will be applied to redemptions of your shares.

The fund reserves the right to modify or eliminate the short-term redemption fee or waivers at any time. Investment advisers or their affiliates may pay short-term redemption fees on behalf of investors in managed accounts. Unitized group accounts consisting of qualified plan assets may be treated as a single account for redemption fee purposes.

Fidelity seeks to identify intermediaries that hold fund shares in omnibus accounts and will refuse their purchase orders if they do not agree to track and remit short-term redemption fees based on the transactions of underlying investors. There are no assurances that Fidelity will successfully identify all intermediaries or that the intermediaries will properly assess short-term redemption fees.

Any applicable CDSC is calculated based on your original redemption amount (before deducting any applicable redemption fee).

Your shares will be sold at the NAV next calculated after your order is received in proper form, minus the short-term redemption fee, if applicable, and any applicable CDSC. Normally, redemptions will be processed by the next business day, but it may take up to seven days to pay the redemption proceeds if making immediate payment would adversely affect the fund.

It is the responsibility of your investment professional to transmit your order to sell shares to Fidelity before the close of business on the day you place your order.

The fund has authorized certain intermediaries to accept orders to sell shares on its behalf. When authorized intermediaries receive an order in proper form, the order is considered as being placed with the fund, and shares will be sold at the NAV next calculated after the order is received by the authorized intermediary, minus the short-term redemption fee, if applicable, and any applicable CDSC. Orders by funds of funds for which FMR or an affiliate serves as investment manager will be treated as received by the fund at the same time that the corresponding orders are received in proper form by the funds of funds.

A signature guarantee is designed to protect you and Fidelity from fraud. Fidelity may require that your request be made in writing and include a signature guarantee in certain circumstances, such as:

  • When you wish to sell more than $100,000 worth of shares;

Prospectus

  • When the address on your account (record address) has changed within the last 15 days or you are requesting that a check be mailed to an address different than the record address;
  • When you are requesting that redemption proceeds be paid to someone other than the account owner; or
  • In certain situations when the redemption proceeds are being transferred to a Fidelity account with a different registration.

You should be able to obtain a signature guarantee from a bank, broker-dealer, credit union (if authorized under state law), securities exchange or association, clearing agency, or savings association. A notary public cannot provide a signature guarantee.

When you place an order to sell shares, note the following:

  • If you are selling some but not all of your shares, keep your fund balance above the required minimum to keep your fund position open, except fund positions not subject to balance minimums.
  • Redemption proceeds (other than exchanges) may be delayed until money from prior purchases sufficient to cover your redemption has been received and collected. This can take up to seven business days after a purchase.
  • Redemptions may be suspended or payment dates postponed when the NYSE is closed (other than weekends or holidays), when trading on the NYSE is restricted, or as permitted by the SEC.
  • Redemption proceeds may be paid in securities or other property rather than in cash if FMR determines it is in the best interests of the fund.
  • You will not receive interest on amounts represented by uncashed redemption checks.
  • Under applicable anti-money laundering regulations and other federal regulations, redemption requests may be suspended, restricted, canceled, or processed and the proceeds may be withheld.

  • The exchange limit may be modified for accounts held by certain institutional retirement plans to conform to plan exchange limits and Department of Labor regulations. See your retirement plan materials for further information.
  • The fund may refuse any exchange purchase for any reason. For example, the fund may refuse exchange purchases by any person or group if, in FMR's judgment, the fund would be unable to invest the money effectively in accordance with its investment objective and policies, or would otherwise potentially be adversely affected.
  • Any exchanges of Class A, Class T, Class B, and Class C shares are not subject to a CDSC.
  • Before exchanging into a fund or class, read its prospectus.
  • The fund or class you are exchanging into must be available for sale in your state.
  • Exchanges may have tax consequences for you.
  • If you are exchanging between accounts that are not registered in the same name, address, and taxpayer identification number (TIN), there may be additional requirements.
  • Under applicable anti-money laundering regulations and other federal regulations, exchange requests may be suspended, restricted, canceled, or processed and the proceeds may be withheld.

The fund may terminate or modify exchange privileges in the future.

Other funds may have different exchange restrictions and minimums, and may impose redemption fees of up to 2.00% of the amount exchanged. Check each fund's prospectus for details.

Accounts may be restricted and/or closed, and the monies withheld, pending verification of this information or as otherwise required under these and other federal regulations.

Dividends and Capital Gain Distributions

The fund earns dividends, interest, and other income from its investments, and distributes this income (less expenses) to shareholders as dividends. The fund also realizes capital gains from its investments, and distributes these gains (less any losses) to shareholders as capital gain distributions.

The fund normally pays dividends and capital gain distributions in March and December.

Distribution Options

When you open an account, specify on your application how you want to receive your distributions. The following distribution options are available for each class:

1. Reinvestment Option. Your dividends and capital gain distributions will be automatically reinvested in additional shares of the same class of the fund. If you do not indicate a choice on your application, you will be assigned this option.

2. Income-Earned Option. Your capital gain distributions will be automatically reinvested in additional shares of the same class of the fund. Your dividends will be paid in cash.

3. Cash Option. Your dividends and capital gain distributions will be paid in cash.

4. Directed Dividends® Option. Your dividends will be automatically invested in the same class of shares of another identically registered Fidelity fund that offers Advisor classes of shares or shares of certain identically registered Fidelity funds. Your capital gain distributions will be automatically invested in the same class of shares of another identically registered Fidelity fund that offers Advisor classes of shares or shares of certain identically registered Fidelity funds, automatically reinvested in additional shares of the same class of the fund, or paid in cash.

Prospectus

Not all distribution options are available for every account. If the option you prefer is not listed on your account application, or if you want to change your current option, contact your investment professional directly or call Fidelity.

If you elect to receive distributions paid in cash by check and the U.S. Postal Service does not deliver your checks, your distribution option may be converted to the Reinvestment Option. You will not receive interest on amounts represented by uncashed distribution checks.

Tax Consequences

As with any investment, your investment in the fund could have tax consequences for you. If you are not investing through a tax-advantaged retirement account, you should consider these tax consequences.

Taxes on distributions. Distributions you receive from the fund are subject to federal income tax, and may also be subject to state or local taxes.

For federal tax purposes, certain of the fund's distributions, including dividends and distributions of short-term capital gains, are taxable to you as ordinary income, while certain of the fund's distributions, including distributions of long-term capital gains, are taxable to you generally as capital gains. A percentage of certain distributions of dividends may qualify for taxation at long-term capital gains rates (provided certain holding period requirements are met).

If you buy shares when a fund has realized but not yet distributed income or capital gains, you will be "buying a dividend" by paying the full price for the shares and then receiving a portion of the price back in the form of a taxable distribution.

Any taxable distributions you receive from the fund will normally be taxable to you when you receive them, regardless of your distribution option.

Taxes on transactions. Your redemptions, including exchanges, may result in a capital gain or loss for federal tax purposes. A capital gain or loss on your investment in the fund generally is the difference between the cost of your shares and the price you receive when you sell them.
