Mutual funds are subject to risks and fluctuate in value.

In 2013, Federal tax rates on qualified dividend income increased to 20% for single taxpayers with income of more than $400,000 and married filing jointly taxpayers with income of more than $450,000. The 0% and 15% rates on qualified dividends were permanently extended in 2013 for taxpayers below those thresholds.

Bond prices are sensitive to changes in interest rates, and a rise in interest rates can cause a decline in their prices.

International investing involves special risks including currency risk, increased volatility, political risks, and differences in auditing and other financial standards.

High-yield, lower-rated securities generally entail greater market, credit/default and liquidity risks and may be more volatile than investment-grade securities.

Fund income may be subject to state and local taxes. Although this fund pursues tax-advantaged income and seeks to invest primarily in securities whose interest is not subject to the federal alternative minimum tax, there are no assurances that it will achieve these goals.
There are no guarantees that dividend-paying stocks will continue to pay dividends.
As indicated in its name, Federated Muni and Stock Advantage Fund invests in both municipal (muni) securities and equity securities (stock) as described in the fund’s prospectus. Thus, the fund is not entirely a “tax-exempt” or “municipal” fund, and a portion of the income derived from the fund’s portfolio (or dividend distributions) will be subject to federal income tax and state and local personal income tax.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Investors should carefully consider the fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing.
