RE SHAREHOLDER MEETING, YOU CAN VOTE USING THIS LINE
"Me" is very correct.
They are just calling to vote your proxy so that shareholder meetings can be held. If not enough votes are received shareholder meetings cannot be held. It is best to just vote so that the fund does not have to concentrate so much time and money on getting votes so that money can go back to you as a shareholder!
It's Computershare Fund Services they are calling because you never responded to their proxy card (or email from your broker). Computershare Fund Services is a proxy agent that the American Funds hired for the upcoming shareholder meeting. All they want you to do is vote on your proxy
They are calling to ask if stockholders intend on attending the next meeting.
This is American Funds.. not sure if they call to sell, discuss your retirement account or what...
