NOTES TO PORTFOLIO OF INVESTMENTS — September 30, 2009 — (unaudited)
Note 1. Security Valuation Stocks are generally valued based upon closing sales prices reported on recognized securities exchanges. Stocks listed on the NASDAQ are valued using the NASDAQ Official Closing Price (“NOCP”). Generally, the NOCP will be the last sale price unless the reported trade for the stock is outside the range of the bid/ask price. In such cases, the NOCP will be normalized to the nearer of the bid or ask price. For listed securities having no sales reported and for unlisted securities, such securities will be valued based upon the last reported bid price.
As of the close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), securities traded primarily on security exchanges outside the United States are valued at the last sale price on such exchanges on the day of valuation, or if there is no sale on the day of valuation, at the last-reported bid price. If a security’s price is available from more than one exchange, the SunAmerica Focused Alpha Growth, Inc, (the “Fund”) uses the exchange that is the primary market for the security. However, depending on the foreign market, closing prices may be up to 15 hours old when they are used to price the Fund’s shares, and the Fund may determine that certain closing prices are unreliable. This determination will be based on review of a number of factors, including developments in foreign markets, the performance of U.S. securities markets, and the performance of instruments trading in U.S. markets that represent foreign securities and baskets of foreign securities. If the Fund determines that closing prices do not reflect the fair value of the securities, the Fund will adjust the previous closing prices in accordance with pricing procedures approved by the Board of Directors (the “Board”) to reflect what it believes to be the fair value of the securities as of the close of regular trading on the NYSE. The Fund may also fair value securities in other situations, for example, when a particular foreign market is closed but the Fund is open. For foreign equity securities, the Fund uses an outside pricing service to provide it with closing market prices and information used for adjusting those prices.
Short-term securities with 60 days or less to maturity are amortized to maturity based on their cost to the Fund if acquired within 60 days of maturity or, if already held by the Fund on the 60th day, are amortized to maturity based on the value determined on the 61st day.
Securities for which market quotations are not readily available or if a development/significant event occurs that may significantly impact the value of the security, then these securities are valued, as determined pursuant to procedures adopted in good faith by the Board. There is no single standard for making fair value determinations, which may result in prices that vary from those of other funds.
The various inputs that may be used to determine the value of the Fund’s investments are summarized into three broad levels listed below:
Level 1 — Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical securities
Level 2 — Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, quoted prices in inactive markets, etc.)
Level 3 — Significant unobservable inputs (includes inputs that reflect the Fund’s own assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the security, developed based on the best information available under the circumstances).
The inputs or methodology used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities.
The summary of the inputs used to value the Fund’s net assets as of September 30, 2009 are reported on a schedule following the Portfolio of Investments.
Note 2. Federal Income Taxes As of September 30, 2009, the amounts of aggregate unrealized gain (loss) and the cost of investment securities for federal income tax purposes, including short-term securities, were as follows:
Cost (tax basis)
  $ 233,751,802  
  $ 64,829,261  
    (9,010,528 )
Net unrealized appreciation (depreciation)
  $ 55,818,733
