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. The FTHSX was ranked in the Morningstar US Equity Small Cap Blend Category as of 3/31/21 year-to-date: 62 out of 671 funds, one-year: 525 out of 661 funds, three-year: 100 out of 641 funds, five-year: 24 out of 608 funds and since inception: 3 out of 501 funds.
