Overall Morningstar rating, as of February 29, 2020, vs. 395 funds. TASCX was rated against the following numbers of Small Value Category Funds over the following time periods: 395 funds in the last three years, 348 funds in the last five years, and 241 funds in the last ten years. With respect to these Small Value funds, TASCX received a Morningstar Rating of 4 stars, 4 stars and 4 stars for the three-, five- and ten-year periods, respectively. Ratings based on risk-adjusted return. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The Morningstar Rating for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product 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 Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
