News Flash - Fidelity Removes Load On Five Diversified Funds

Fidelity Investments eliminated the 3% sales load on five of its biggest diversified equity funds last week, including the Fidelity Magellan Fund. The four other funds that now have no sales load are the Fidelity Contrafund, the Fidelity Contrafund II, the Fidelity Low-Priced Stock and the Fidelity New Millennium funds.

With this move, all of Fidelity's 130 diversified equity funds are now available without a sales load. Only the firm's 41 sector and industry funds carry this charge.

Fidelity also launched three value funds - the Fidelity Blue Chip Value Fund, the Fidelity Advisor Value Leaders Fund and the Fidelity VIP Value Leaders Portfolio - bringing its total value offerings to 15.
