About Risk 

Fund share values are sensitive to stock market volatility. Changes in the dividend policies of companies could make it difficult to provide a predictable level of income. Investments in foreign instruments or currencies can involve greater risk and volatility than U.S. investments because of adverse market, economic, political, regulatory, geopolitical or other conditions. Dividend capture strategies may result in higher portfolio turnover, increased trading costs and potential for capital loss or gains. When interest rates rise, the value of preferred stocks will generally decline. Market conditions may limit the ability to generate tax losses or to generate dividend income taxed at favorable tax rates. The Fund's ability to utilize various tax-managed techniques may be curtailed or eliminated in the future by tax legislation or regulation. No Fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a Fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund prospectus for a complete description.

Based on Risk-Adjusted Returns.

The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics.

© 2014 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved. The information contained herein: (1) is proprietary to Morningstar and/or its content providers; (2) may not be copied or distributed; and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers is responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating™ based on how a fund ranks on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure against other funds in the same category. This measure takes into account variations in a fund's monthly performance after adjusting for sales loads (except for load-waived A shares) redemption fees, and the risk-free rate, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. Load-waived A share star ratings do not include any front-end sales load and are intended for those investors who have access to such purchase terms (e.g., plan participants of a defined contribution plan). Not all A share mutual funds for which Morningstar calculates a load-waived A share star rating may actually waive their front-end sales load. Therefore, Morningstar strongly encourages investors to contact their investment professional to determine whether they are eligible to purchase the A share without paying the front load. The Morningstar Rating may differ among share classes of a mutual fund as a result of different sales loads and/or expense structure.

Insights & Analysis

Quarterly Commentary

A Word On The Markets  as of Sep 30, 2014

Major global stock markets delivered mixed returns for the third quarter of 2014, as U.S. equities recorded modest gains, while some overseas equity markets retreated. Late in the quarter, most stock markets worldwide fell amid renewed worries about the global economy, mounting international tensions and elevated equity valuations.

In the U.S., stocks stalled early in the period, then pulled back sharply in late July on geopolitical and economic concerns. However, many investors viewed the pullback as a buying opportunity, allowing stocks to soon resume their upward trend. In their generally steady rise until the period’s final two weeks, U.S. stocks drew support from the Federal Reserve’s (the Fed) ongoing low-interest-rate policy, along with some positive economic reports.

A number of economic indicators pointed to continued gradual improvement in the U.S. economy, including upbeat data on retail sales, manufacturing activity, construction spending, new home starts and revised GDP growth for the second quarter of 2014. On the employment front, hiring indicators turned up in September after lower-than-expected job creation numbers for August. Overseas, weakening economies in Europe led the European Central Bank (ECB) to adopt further stimulus measures late in the quarter. In China, disappointing economic data for August sparked fresh worries about slowing growth in the world’s second-largest economy.

Among major world equity indexes, after hitting an all-time high during the quarter, the Dow Jones Industrial Average13 finished the period with a modest gain of 1.9%. The broader S&P 500 Index14 rose 1.1% after also attaining a record high during the quarter. Large-cap U.S. equities generally outperformed their small-cap counterparts during the quarter, with growth stocks outpacing value stocks within both the large- and small-cap space. Overseas, the MSCI EAFE Index15 of developed-market international stocks fell 5.9%, while the MSCI Emerging Markets Index16 lost 3.5%.

Performance Summary 

Eaton Vance Tax-Managed Global Dividend Income Fund (the Fund) outperformed its benchmark, the MSCI World Index (the Index),2 for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, returning -1.55% for Class A shares at net asset value versus the Index’s -2.16% return.

  • The Fund’s outperformance versus the Index was primarily due to strong stock selection, with sector allocation contributing modestly.
  • Similar to the second quarter of 2014, there was significant volatility in global markets during the third quarter. Issues in the traditionally peaceful nations of Scotland and Hong Kong had ripple effects on other markets, as did ongoing stresses in Syria, Ukraine/Russia and Iraq.
  • Global economic data also disappointed, with weak global demand, housing and manufacturing widespread. On the upside, inflation has generally remained low.
  • On a sector basis, most sectors within the Index had negative returns for the quarter, with the exceptions of health care and information technology. The weakest-performing sectors in the Index were energy and materials. The Fund outperformed the Index in every sector but consumer staples and energy.

Contributors 

Stock selection across a number of sectors contributed to the Fund’s relative performance during the quarter. Stock selection gains were greatest in the consumer discretionary sector, followed by health care and utilities.

  • At the individual stock level, Gilead Sciences, a U.S. biotech company, was the Fund’s top contributor to relative performance versus the Index.
  • Nike, Inc. was another top-performing stock for the Fund. In addition to outperforming the Index, the stock was overweighted in the Fund’s portfolio.
  • Other strong-performing individual stocks included social media giant Facebook, chemical company Lyondell Basell and Japanese pharmaceutical company Chugai Pharmaceutical.

Detractors 

Unfavorable stock selection in the energy sector was the biggest detractor from the Fund’s performance relative to the Index. Stock selection in the consumer discretionary and industrials sectors also detracted from performance versus the Index.

  • At the individual stock level, Devon Energy and Statoil, another energy name, detracted the most from the Fund’s performance relative to the Index.
  • Other notable individual detractors included global sportswear company Adidas, industrial company Caterpillar and IT firm Corning.
  • In the materials sector, the Fund’s relative performance was hurt by an overweight position in Arkema, an industrial chemicals manufacturer.

Investment Outlook And Fund Positioning 

Global stock-market volatility late in the third quarter raised some concerns about the near-term outlook for stocks, with many observers expecting more market turbulence in the coming months. In the U.S., the approaching corporate earnings season and the midterm elections in November could trigger some short-term volatility. In addition, many investors will be closely monitoring equity valuations in the wake of U.S. stocks’ long rise. Looking ahead to 2015, investors will weigh the potential impact on stocks if the Fed, as widely expected, begins to raise short-term interest rates. On the positive side, many observers cite the prospect of ongoing gradual U.S. economic growth as a reason for continued optimism regarding U.S. stocks.

Overseas, geopolitical issues remain a source of concern. Investors worried about deflation and recession risks in Europe will be watching for further stimulus initiatives by the ECB. In China, investors will look for a resolution of policy debates around additional economic stimulus, as well as any signs of accelerating growth.
