Fidelity VIP Value Strategies
Objective And StrategyObjective
The investment seeks capital appreciation.
The fund normally invests primarily in common stocks. It invests in securities of companies that the adviser believes are undervalued in the marketplace in relation to factors such as assets, sales, earnings, or growth potential (stocks of these companies are often called "value" stocks). The fund focuses investments in medium-sized companies, but also may invest substantially in larger or smaller companies.
* This portfolio invests in securities of foreign issuers which involves risks not typically associated with domestic issuers, including currency fluctuations and the possibility of political and economic instability. Emerging markets involve risks in addition to those generally associated with foreign securities, because political and economic structures in many emerging markets may be undergoing significant evolution and rapid development.
* This portfolio invests (or may invest) in securities of companies with micro-, small-, or mid-capitalization. Any investment in micro-, small-, or mid-capitalization companies involves greater risk than that customarily associated with investments in larger, more established companies because of the greater business risks of smaller size, limited markets and financial resources, narrower product lines, and frequent lack of management depth. As such, micro- or small-cap companies may be more subject to erratic and abrupt market movements than securities of larger, more established companies.
