Calculating Your Future Returns: The value of any investment and the income derived from it can go down as well as up.
Never invest more than you can afford to lose and keep in mind the ultimate risk is that you can lose whatever you have invested.
While useful for detecting patterns, the past is not a guide to future performance.
Some figures contained in this report are forecasts and may not be a reliable indicator of future results.
Any potential gains in this letter do not include taxes, brokerage commissions, or associated fees.
Please seek independent financial advice regarding your particular situation.
Investments in foreign companies involve risk and may not be suitable for all investors.
Specifically, changes in the rates of exchange between currencies may cause a divergence between your nominal gain and your currency-converted gain, making it possible to lose money once your total return is adjusted for currency.
