Risk

Stock markets, especially foreign markets, are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Foreign securities are subject to interest rate, currency exchange rate, economic, and political risks, all of which are magnified in emerging markets.

Volatility Measures

More Information
Beta 1.04
AS OF 10/31/2014

A measure of a portfolio's sensitivity to market movements (as represented by a benchmark index). The benchmark index, such as the S&P 500 or EAFE index, has a beta of 1.0. A beta of more (less) than 1.0 indicates that a fund's historical returns have fluctuated more (less) than the benchmark index. Beta is a more reliable measure of volatility when used in combination with a high R2 which indicates a high correlation between the movements in a fund's returns and movements in a benchmark index.

R2 0.89
AS OF 10/31/2014

A measurement of how closely the portfolio's performance correlates with the performance of a benchmark index, such as the S&P 500. R2 is a proportion which ranges between 0.00 and 1.00. An R2 of 1.00 indicates perfect correlation to the benchmark index, that is, all of the portfolio's fluctuations are explained by performance fluctuations of the index, while an R2 of 0.00 indicates no correlation. Therefore, the lower the R2, the more the fund's performance is affected by factors other than the market as measured by that benchmark index. An R2 value of less than 0.5 indicates that the Annualized Alpha and Beta are not reliable performance statistics.

Sharpe Ratio 1.29
AS OF 10/31/2014

The Sharpe ratio is a measure of historical adjusted performance calculated by dividing the fund's excess returns (fund's average monthly returns minus the average monthly return of the Salomon Smith Barney 3-Month T-Bill Index) by the standard deviation of those returns. The higher the ratio, the better the fund's return per unit of risk.

Standard Deviation 11.50
AS OF 10/31/2014

Statistical measure of how much a return varies over an extended period of time. The more variable the returns, the larger the standard deviation. Investors may examine historical standard deviation in conjunction with historical returns to decide whether an investment's volatility would have been acceptable given the returns it would have produced. A higher standard deviation indicates a wider dispersion of past returns and thus greater historical volatility. Standard deviation does not indicate how an investment actually performed, but it does indicate the volatility of its returns over time. Standard deviation is annualized. The returns used for this calculation are not load-adjusted.

Volatility measures are based on the variability of historical returns of the portfolio. In the case of annuity funds, this is before the effect of annuity charges. Relative Volatility, Beta, and R2 compare a portfolio's total return to those of a relevant market, represented by the benchmark index. Standard Deviation is calculated independent of an index.

Commentary

Third Quarter 2014 Summary

Overview

  • Fidelity® Worldwide Fund is a diversified global equity fund that seeks growth of capital.
  • The fund employs a growth-at-a-reasonable-price (GARP) approach to select investments. In particular, we seek companies with durable competitive positions, high and consistent profitability, a high return on capital, solid free-cash-flow generation and management teams whose interests are aligned with those of shareholders.
  • We strive to uncover these companies through in-depth fundamental analysis, working in concert with Fidelity's global research team.
  • For the three months ending September 30, 2014, Fidelity Worldwide Fund returned -4.10%, trailing the -2.07% advance of the MSCI World Index.
  • While this review mainly outlines drivers for the past quarter, our buy and sell decisions are typically based on the longer-term prospects for stocks and not on short time periods.

Drivers of Fund Performance:

  • Mounting worries over sluggish economic growth in Europe and Japan, plus slowdowns in China and many emerging markets, pressured equity returns worldwide. Concern over geopolitical conflicts and the potential for higher interest rates in the U.S. further weighed on results. Most overseas equity markets declined in the quarter, while U.S. stocks - which represented over half the MSCI World Index - posted a very slight gain.
  • Security selection was challenging and drove the fund's underperformance. Results were weakest in the U.S., which represented on average about 54% of the fund. Investments in Europe ex U.K., notably Ireland and the Netherlands, also hurt performance.
  • In terms of economic sectors, nine out of the 10 represented in the fund produced subpar results compared with the MSCI index, with the most notable disappointments coming from stock picks in industrials and information technology and positioning in energy. The fund's largest individual positions were U.S. stocks, which meant they dominated the list of top and bottom contributors to relative performance. The fund's non-U.S. positions tend to be smaller weights in the portfolio.
  • Within industrials, individual detractors included Cummins, a manufacturer of diesel engines, which saw its stock decline due to a slowdown in orders in the non-U.S. portion of its business. An investment in American Airlines Group also weighed on performance. Its shares fell roughly 17% as analysts lowered revenue targets on expectations of increased competition, especially from Southwest Airlines, which plans to expand routes in Dallas and Washington, D.C. - two of American's most important hubs - later this year. By quarter end, we had significantly reduced the fund's stake in American Airlines, which has seen excess capacity following the Ebola outbreak, sanctions in Russia and the slowdown in Europe's economic growth.
  • Security selection and an overweighting in the weak-performing energy sector contributed to underperformance. More specifically, having an above-benchmark stake in natural gas producer Range Resources hindered results as pipeline-capacity constraints in the Marcellus Shale and downtime at two processing centers led to an earnings shortfall that pressured the stock. We eliminated Range from the portfolio before quarter end.
  • Within information technology, the fund lost ground from not owning index component Apple. The stock climbed about 9% in the quarter, as expectations rose for a strong holiday sales period due to brisk initial sales of the company's new bigger-screen iPhone® smartphones, released in September. The company sold more than 10 million of its iPhone® 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones over the first weekend of sales, well ahead of projections. Apple beat earnings estimates for its fiscal third quarter, reported in July, on strong global demand for its iPhone, Mac and service offerings that overshadowed a second-straight quarter of lower iPad® computer tablet sales.
  • By contrast, financials gave a modest boost to relative performance mostly due to an overweighting in the diversified financials group. Top individual contributors here included insurance, wealth and investment manager Ameriprise Financial and McGraw Hill Financial, which owns Standard & Poor's. Ameriprise posted a small gain thanks to improving revenue growth, especially in the company's advice and wealth-management units, which led to better-than-expected second-quarter earnings and upward earnings revisions for 2014. McGraw Hill's stock benefited from an improved earnings outlook driven by the company's ongoing efforts to sell off slower-growing non-core units and focus on its less capital-intensive ratings and index businesses.
  • Other winners included Facebook, the world's largest social network. Its shares rose 17% to reach an all-time high during the period, driven by strong mobile-advertising revenue, an increasing number of subscribers and wider operating margins. Mobile ads represented about 62% of the firm's total advertising revenue, up from 41% in the same period last year. Facebook reported 1.3 billion active users of its service, up 40 million from the prior quarter.

End-of-Quarter Positioning:

  • The fund ended the period with a sizable overweighting in information technology that changed little over the quarter.  We did, however, make some shifts to individual positions that resulted in a slightly higher stake in the software & services group and reduced exposure to technology hardware & equipment and to semiconductors & semiconductor equipment.
  • We cut back noticeably in the energy and industrials sectors. We took energy from an over- to an underweighting amid concern that global supply glut would continue to pressure oil prices. In industrials, we trimmed capital goods firms that derive a significant portion of their revenues from Europe, China and other economies that seem to be decelerating. However, we continued to favor U.S. railroad and trucking companies that we thought likely to benefit from improved volumes should U.S. economic growth pick up.
  • Proceeds from some of these sales went into financials, especially U.S. banks, which stand to benefit if interest rates move higher. We also added to health care and materials.
  • Regional allocations remained close to benchmark in large part because we found relatively few valuation anomalies across markets. However, in Europe, we trimmed the fund's stake in companies with the most exposure to an economic recovery there and shifted toward globally competitive exporters. We modestly increased the overweighting in emerging markets, where economic growth has slowed but still remains stronger than that of many developed markets. We remained selective, though, avoiding countries such as Russia and Brazil and focusing on markets with stronger near-term outlooks, including India and South Korea.
Finally, we remain committed to a disciplined investment process in pursuit of strong long-term results for our shareholders.

Watch a brief video to learn about using the new mutual fund library to evaluate funds

The "Mutual Funds" area at the top of each page allows access to mutual fund holdings with individual and joint Fidelity non-retirement accounts. Individual stock positions, ETFs and 529 funds are not available through this view. For the full list of your holdings visit Portfolio Summary.

Mutual Funds are priced as of the previous business day's market close when the market is open. Mutual fund positions are priced as of the official market close (typically 4p.m.) and prices are generally available between 5 p.m. and 6p.m.

1. No Transaction Fee Fidelity funds are available without paying a trading fee to Fidelity or a sales load to the fund. However, the fund may charge a short-term trading or redemption fee to protect the interests of long-term shareholders of the fund. Shares are subject to the fund's management and operating expenses. See Expenses & Fees for more information.

2. Total returns are historical and include change in share value and reinvestment of dividends and capital gains, if any. Cumulative total returns are reported as of the period indicated. Life of fund figures are reported as of the commencement date to the period indicated and are cumulative if the fund is less than one year old. Total returns do not reflect the fund's [%] sales charge. If sales charges were included, total returns would have been lower.

3. The Morningstar Category Average is the average return for the peer group based on the returns of each individual fund within the group, for the period shown. This average assumes reinvestment of dividends.

4. This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made in this investment product (and a benchmark or category average, if shown) from the beginning date shown or on the inception date of the product (whichever is later). The inception date used for products with underlying funds, or multiple shares classes, or are offered as a separate account, strategy or sub account, may be the inception date of the underlying fund, the earliest share class of the product, or the date composite performance for the product was first made available. The product's returns may not reflect all its expenses. Any fees not reflected would lower the returns. Benchmark returns include reinvestment of capital gains and dividends, if any, but do not reflect any fees or expenses. It is not possible to invest in an index. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. This chart is not intended to imply any future performance of the investment product.

5. Initial minimum investments into group retirement accounts such as Fidelity Simplified Employee Pension-IRA, Keogh, Self-Employed 401(k), and Non-Fidelity Prototype Retirement accounts are $500 or higher. There is no minimum for additional investments in any type of Fidelity fund you already own.

6. Any holdings, asset allocation, diversification breakdowns or other composition data shown are as of the date indicated and are subject to change at any time. They may not be representative of the fund's current or future investments. The Top Ten holdings do not include money market instruments or futures contracts, if any. Depository receipts are normally combined with the underlying security. Some breakdowns may be intentionally limited to a particular asset class or other subset of the fund's entire portfolio, particularly in multi-asset class funds where the attributes of the equity and fixed income portions are different.

Under the asset allocation section, international (or foreign) assets may be reported differently depending on how an investment option reports its holdings. Some do not report international (or foreign) holdings here, but instead report them in a "Regional Diversification" section. Some report them in this section in addition to the equity, bond and other allocation shown. Others report international (or foreign) holding as a subset of the equity and bond allocations shown. If the allocation without the foreign component equals (or rounds to) 100%, then international (or foreign) is a subset of the equity and bond percentage shown.

7. Percent Rank in Category is the fund's total-return percentile rank relative to all funds that have the same Morningstar Category. The highest (or most favorable) percentile rank is 1 and the lowest (or least favorable) percentile rank is 100. The top-performing fund in a category will always receive a rank of 1. % Rank in Category is based on total returns which include reinvested dividends and capital gains, if any, and exclude sales charges.

8. Fidelity may deduct a small balance maintenance fee of $12.00 from a fund balance with a value less than $2,000. Fund positions opened after September 30 will not be subject to the fee for that calendar year. This fee will not be deducted from fund positions opened after January 1 of that calendar year if those positions use regular investment plans. Refer to the fund prospectus for details.
