This fund offers long-term capital appreciation by investing in leading companies in industries T. Rowe Price believes are poised for long-term growth. It gives investors a low-cost way to invest in "blue chip" companies that enjoy strong market positions, seasoned management teams, solid financial conditions, and above-average earnings growth and profitability.

Because growth stocks have higher valuations and lower dividend yields than slower-growth or cyclical companies, the share price volatility may be higher. As such, fund prices could decline further in market downturns than non-growth-oriented funds.
* 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.
