This fund offers investors the ability to access the significant growth potential of companies operating in the fastest growing sectors in the United States. Fund investors also benefit from the extensive experience of T. Rowe Price in growth stock investing.
The fund is subject to market risk, and share prices may decline more than non-growth-oriented funds in down markets due to the higher valuations/lower yields of growth stocks.
* Annually we evaluate the standard deviation of each US mutual fund listed and its resulting placement within specific risk/return categories.
Methodology: If a fund is at least 5 year old, it is generally placed in risk/return categories based on the standard deviation of its performance for the longest period of its calendar year returns;
the longest time period used for analysis is 10 years (regardless of the fund's inception). If a fund is less than 5 years old, we generally use the fund's primary benchmark disclosed in its prospectus as a proxy and follow the same process of using 10-year standard deviation of the benchmark,
or longest time period available. The firm at its sole discretion may show a fund in a higher risk category based on qualitative or other factors that may differ from this methodology.
