(a) SEC Yield is an annualization of the Fund’s net investment income for the trailing 30-day period. Dividends paid by the Fund may be higher or lower than implied by the SEC Yield.
(b) Active share is a measure of how much an investment portfolio differs from its benchmark index, based on a scale of 0% (complete overlap with the index) to 100% (no overlap). Overlap for each security in the Fund is the lower of either its percentage weight in the Fund or its percentage weight in the relevant index. The Stock Fund’s total overlap with the S&P 500 is the sum of each security’s calculated overlap.
(c) Price-to-earnings (P/E) ratios are calculated using 12-month forward earnings estimates from third-party sources.
(d) Foreign securities are U.S. dollar denominated.
(e) The Fund’s portfolio holdings are subject to change without notice. The mention of specific securities is not a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any particular security and is not indicative of Dodge & Cox's current or future trading activity.
(f) Net Cash & Other includes cash, short-term investments, derivatives, receivables, and payables.

*The Fund's total returns include the reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions, but have not been adjusted for any income taxes payable by shareholders on these distributions or on Fund share redemptions. Index returns include dividends but, unlike Fund returns, do not reflect fees or expenses. The S&P 500 Index is a market capitalization-weighted index of 500 large-capitalization stocks commonly used to represent the U.S. equity market.
