The Standard & Poorís 500 Index represents an unmanaged, broad-based basket of stocks. It is typically used as a proxy for overall market performance. The S&P 500 Index returns assume that dividends are reinvested.

As a non-diversified fund, the value of its shares may fluctuate more than shares invested in a broader range of companies. Non-investment grade debt securities, ie., junk bonds, are subject to greater credit risk, price volatility and risk of loss than investment grade securities. Options contain special risks including the imperfect correlation between the value of the option and the value of the underlying asset. In addition, investing in foreign securities involves more risk than just U.S. investments, including the risk of currency fluctuations, political and economic instability and differences in financial reporting standards. There may also be heightened risks investing in non-investment grade debt securities and the use of options. There are also risks associated with investing in small and medium sized companies. You should consult the fundís prospectus for a complete list of risks associated with your investment.
Kinetics Mutual Funds, unlike other
investment companies that directly acquire and manage their own
portfolios of securities, pursue their investment objectives by
investing all of their investable assets in a corresponding
portfolio series of Kinetics Portfolio Trust.
