The stocks of smaller companies may trade less frequently and experience more abrupt price movements than stocks of larger companies, therefore, investing in this sector involves special challenges. Investing in micro capitalization stocks may involve greater risk than investing in small, medium and large capitalization stocks, since they can be subject to more abrupt or erratic movements in price. TETON Westwood Mighty Mitessm Fund may invest in relatively new or unseasoned companies, which are in their early stages of development, or micro cap companies positioned in new and emerging industries. Micro-cap companies may be illiquid. Securities of micro-cap and unseasoned companies present greater risks than securities of larger, more established companies.

The Fund's share price will fluctuate with changes in the market value of the Fund's portfolio securities. Stocks are subject to market, economic and business risks that cause their prices to fluctuate. When you sell Fund shares, they may be worth less than what you paid for them. Consequently, you can lose money by investing in the Fund.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, sales charges and expense of the fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains more complete information about this and other matters. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing.
