Opportunistic Value Fund (CVAAX)

Choose a class

Overview

The fund invests in the equities of small, midsize and large U.S. companies that we believe are undervalued according to certain financial measurements of their intrinsic values.

Key Features

  • Bottom-up stock picking and benchmark agnostic approach with a focus on good businesses with solid cash flow trading at value prices
  • Trading focus where positions are frequently monitored, investment assumptions are often questioned, and losing investments are quickly sold to protect capital
  • Options strategies to potentially generate income and lower risk

Portfolio Fit

The fund is a core value equity option that may balance a growth allocation and complement other value strategies. Our flexibility in analyzing all companies regardless of sector helps us avoid the cyclicality inherent in a deep value strategy or a momentum growth strategy over full market cycles.

Important Risk Information

An investment in the Fund(s) is subject to risks, and you could lose money on your investment in the Fund(s). There can be no assurance that the Fund(s) will achieve its investment objective. Your investment in the Fund(s) is not a deposit in a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency. The risks associated with an investment in the Fund(s) can increase during times of significant market volatility. The Fund(s) also has specific principal risks, which are described below. More detailed information regarding these risks can be found in the Fund’s prospectus.

The principal risks of investing in the Calamos Opportunistic Value Fund include: equity securities risk consisting of market prices declining in general, value stock risk consisting of the potential that a company will never reach its calculated intrinsic value, small and mid-sized company risk, foreign securities risk and portfolio selection risk.

As a result of political or economic instability in foreign countries, there can be special risks associated with investing in foreign securities, including fluctuations in currency exchange rates, increased price volatility and difficulty obtaining information. In addition, emerging markets may present additional risk due to potential for greater economic and political instability in less developed countries.

NOTES

Annualized Standard Deviation-A statistical measure of the historical volatility of a mutual fund or portfolio, usually computed using 36 monthly returns. More generally, a measure of the extent to which numbers are spread around their average.

Beta-Is a historic measure of a fund's relative volatility, which is one of the measures of risk; a beta of 0.5 reflects 1/2 the market's volatility as represented by the S&P 500 Index, while a beta of 2.0 reflects twice the market's volatility.

Current (SEC) Yield-Reflects the dividends and interest earned by the Fund during the 30-day period ended as of the date stated above after deducting the Fund's expenses for that same period.

Debt/Capital Ratio-Is a measure of a company s financial leverage, calculated as the company’s debt divided by its total capital.

PEG Ratio-Is price/earnings ratio divided by estimated earnings growth rate in the next year; a lower PEG indicates that less is being paid for each unit of earnings growth.

Price/Book Ratio-Is a stock’s capitalization divided by its book value.

Price/Earnings Ratio-Is the current stock price over trailing 12‐month earnings per share.

Price/Sales Ratio-Is the current stock price over trailing 12‐month sales per share.

ROIC (Return On Invested Capital)-Measures how effectively a company uses the money invested in its operations, calculated as a company’s net income minus any dividends divided by the company’s total capital.

Russell 1000® Value Index-Measures the performance of those companies in the Russell 1000® Index with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values.

S&P 500 Index-Is generally considered representative of the U.S. stock market.

Turnover-Is the percentage of assets in a portfolio that changed over a certain period, often a year; higher turnover indicates greater buying and selling activity.

Morningstar Ratings are based on risk-adjusted returns. The Overall Morningstar Rating is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with a fund’s 3-, 5-, and 10-year Morningstar Rating metrics.

For each U.S.-domiciled 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 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. (Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages.)

The information contained herein is proprietary to Morningstar and/or its content providers; may not be copied or distributed; and is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information.

Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. The principal value and investment return of an investment will fluctuate so that your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Unmanaged index returns assume reinvestment of any and all distributions and, unlike fund returns, do not reflect fees, expenses, or sales charges. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.

Unmanaged index returns assume reinvestment of any and all distributions and, unlike fund returns, do not reflect fees, expenses, or sales charges. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.

Average annual total return measures net investment income and capital gain or loss from portfolio investments as an annualized average. All performance shown assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions. Performance shown reflects an expense reimbursement that improved results. Load-adjusted returns are adjusted for the maximum front-end sales load of 2.25%* for Class A shares in the following funds: Convertible Fund, Global Convertible Fund, Market Neutral Income Fund, High Income Opportunities Fund, and Total Return Bond Fund. The maximum front-end sales load for Class A shares of all other funds is 4.75%. There is a 1% contingent deferred sales charge for C shares on certain redemptions within the first year of purchase. Class C shares have been adjusted for the contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). There are no contingent deferred sales charges or distribution or service fees with respect to Class I shares. The minimum initial investment required to purchase each Fund's Class I shares is $1 million. Class I shares are offered primarily for direct investment by investors through certain tax-exempt retirement plans (including 401(k) plans, 457 plans, employer-sponsored 403(b) plans, profit sharing and money purchase pension plans, defined benefit plans and non-qualified deferred compensation plans) and by institutional clients, provided such plans or clients have assets of at least $1 million.
