Alpha measures risk-adjusted performance, factoring in the risk due to the specific manager rather than the overall market.
Mutual fund investing involves risk. Some mutual funds have more risk than others. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than the original cost, and it is possible to lose money. There is no guarantee a fund’s objectives will be achieved. The Fund may have additional risks due to its narrow focus. The Fund may invest in foreign securities, which are subject to currency fluctuation and political uncertainty and real estate investment trusts (REITs), whichmay not be suitable for all investors. There is no guarantee a REIT will pay distributions given the inherent risks associated with the market. A REIT may fail to qualify as a REIT as defined in the Tax Code, which could affect operations and negatively impact the ability to make distributions. The risks associated with each fund are explained more fully in each fund’s respective prospectus.
Consider a fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectus and summary prospectus contain this and other information about the fund. Read the prospectus and summary prospectus carefully before investing.

For the overall, 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods as of 6/30/2014, Prudential Global Real Estate Fund Z was rated 5 stars out of 174 funds, 4 stars out of 174 funds, 4 stars out of 147 funds, and 5 stars out of 27 funds, respectively. For each fund with at least a 3-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar rating (based on a Morningstar risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance, including the effects of sales charges), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, and the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star (each share class is rated separately, which may cause slight variations in the distribution percentages). The overall Morningstar rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar rating metrics. The Fund was rated against U.S.-domiciled funds. The Morningstar Rating may not be customarily calculated based on adjusted historical returns. If so, this investment's independent Morningstar Rating metric is compared against the retail mutual fund universe break points to determine its hypothetical rating for certain time periods.©2014 Morningstar, Inc.
