Class C shares are sold without an initial sales charge. However, if Class C shares are redeemed within one year of purchase (18 months with respect to MainStay Short Duration High Yield Fund), a CDSC of 1.00% will be deducted from the redemption proceeds, except under circumstances described in the SAI. Additionally, Class C shares have higher ongoing distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees and, over time, these fees may cost you more than paying an initial sales charge. The Class C share CDSC and the higher ongoing distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees are paid to compensate the Distributor for its expenses in connection with the sale of Class C shares.
