Since Market Peak represents period 10/9/07 – 9/28/12, illustrating market returns since the most recent S&P 500 Index high on 10/9/07. Since Market Low represents period 3/9/09 – 9/28/12, illustrating market returns since the S&P 500 Index low on 3/9/09. Returns are cumulative returns, not annualized. For all time periods, total return is based on Russell-style indexes with the exception of the large blend category, which is reflected by the S&P 500 Index. Past performance is not indicative of future returns. Data are as of 9/30/12.

Returns by Sector

S Source: Standard St d d & P Poor’s, ’ R Russellll IInvestment t tG Group, F FactSet, tS t J.P. J P Morgan M Asset A t Management. M t All calculations are cumulative total return, not annualized, including dividends for the stated period. Since Market Peak represents period 10/9/07 – 9/28/12. Since Market Low represents period 3/9/09 – 9/28/12. Forward P/E Ratio is a bottom-up calculation based on the most recent S&P 500 Index price, divided by consensus estimates for earnings in the next 12 months (NTM), and is provided by FactSet Market Aggregates. Trailing P/E ratios are bottom-up values defined as month-end price divided by the last 12 months of available reported earnings. Historical data can change as new information becomes available. Note that P/E ratios for the S&P 500 may differ from estimates elsewhere in this book due to the use of a bottom-up calculation of constituent earnings (as described) rather than a top-down calculation. This methodology is used to allow proper comparison of sector level data to broad index level data. Dividend yields are bottom-up bottom up values defined as the annualized value of the most recent cash dividend as a percent of month-end price. Beta calculations are based on 10 years of monthly price returns for the S&P 500 and its sub-indices. Past performance is not indicative of future returns. Data are as of 9/30/12.

Fiscal Ladder scenario assumes Bush tax cuts are extended in full for 2013 and for households earnings less than $250k per year for 2014 the AMT fix, dividend and capital gain tax rates increase to 20% in 2014 payroll tax cut is maintained in 2013, phased down to 1% in 2014 and eliminated in 2016 extended unemployment benefits expire on schedule higher Medicare taxes take effect and only the first round of spending cuts take effect.

The Libor OIS spread is the difference between the interest rate at which banks borrow unsecured funds from other banking institutions and overnight indexed swaps at the effective federal funds rate. The Euribor EONIA spread is the difference between the interest rate at which European Union banks borrow unsecured funds from other Euro banking institutions and the standard interest rate for Euro area deposits calculated by the European Central Bank. Both are standard measures of perceived risk in banking institutions. Data are as of 9/30/12.

Country Value/Growth indices are then aggregated into regional Value/Growth indices. Prior to Mayy 30, 2003, the indices used Price/Book Value ((P/BV)) ratios to divide the standard MSCI country indices into value and growth indices. All securities were classified as either "value" securities (low P/BV securities) or "growth" securities (high P/BV securities), relative to each MSCI country index.

J.P. Morgan Asset Management – Definitions, Risks & Disclosures Past performance is no guarantee of comparable future results. Diversification does not guarantee investment returns and does not eliminate the risk of loss. Bonds are subject to interest rate risks. Bond prices generally fall when interest rates rise. The price of equity securities may rise, or fall because of changes in the broad market or changes in a company’s financial condition, condition sometimes rapidly or unpredictably. unpredictably These price movements may result from factors affecting individual companies, sectors or industries, or the securities market as a whole, such as changes in economic or political conditions. Equity securities are subject to “stock market risk” meaning that stock prices in general may decline over short or extended periods of time. Small-capitalization investing typically carries more risk than investing in well-established "blue-chip" companies since smaller companies generally have a higher risk of failure. Historically, smaller companies' stock has experienced a greater degree of market volatility than the average stock. Mid-capitalization investing typically carries more risk than investing in well-established "blue-chip" companies. Historically, Hi t i ll mid-cap id companies' i ' stock t k hhas experienced i d a greater t ddegree off market k t volatility l tilit th than th the average stock. Real estate investments may be subject to a higher degree of market risk because of concentration in a specific industry, sector or geographical sector. Real estate investments may be subject to risks including, but not limited to, declines in the value of real estate, risks related to general and economic conditions, changes in the value of the underlying property owned by the trust and defaults by borrower. International investing involves a greater degree of risk and increased volatility. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accountingg and taxation ppolicies outside the U.S. can raise or lower returns. Also,, some overseas markets may not be as politically and economically stable as the United States and other nations. Investments in emerging markets can be more volatile. As mentioned above, the normal risks of investing in foreign countries are heightened when investing in emerging markets. In addition, the small size of securities markets and the low trading volume may lead to a lack of liquidity, which leads to increased volatility. Also, emerging markets may not provide adequate legal protection for private or foreign investment or private property. Investments in commodities may have greater volatility than investments in traditional securities, particularly if the instruments involve leverage. The value of commodity-linked derivative instruments may be affected by changes in overall market movements, commodity index volatility, changes in interest rates, or factors affecting a particular industry or commodity, such as drought, floods, weather, livestock disease, embargoes, tariffs and international economic, political and regulatory developments. Use of leveraged commodity-linked derivatives creates an opportunity for increased return but, at the same time, creates the possibility for greater loss. Derivatives may be riskier than other types of investments because they may be more sensitive to changes in economic or market conditions than other types of investments and could result in losses that significantly exceed the original investment. The use of derivatives may not be successful, resulting in investment losses, and the cost of such strategies may reduce investment returns. Price to forward earnings is a measure of the price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) using forecasted earnings. Price to book value compares a stock's market value to its book value. Price to cash flow is a measure of the market's expectations of a firm's firm s future financial health. health Price to dividends is the ratio of the price of a share on a stock exchange to the dividends per share paid in the previous year, used as a measure of a company's potential as an investment.

There is no guarantee that the use of long and short positions will succeed in limiting an investor's exposure to domestic stock market movements, capitalization, sector swings or other risk factors. Investing using long and short selling strategies may have higher portfolio turnover rates.
