Description: The PowerShares High Yield Equity Dividend Achievers Portfolio ("the Fund") seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield (before the Fund's fees and expenses) of an equity index called the Mergent Dividend Achievers 50 Index (the "Underlying Index"). The Underlying Index is comprised of 50 stocks selected principally on the basis of dividend yield and consistent growth in dividends. The Underlying Index contains only stocks and no debt or fixed income securities. To qualify as a stock included in the universe of "Dividend Achievers," an issuer must have raised its annual regular cash dividend, on a pre- tax basis, for at least each of the last ten consecutive fiscal years. The Fund will normally invest at least 80% of its total assets in common stocks of companies that have a consistent record of dividend increases.
