Fund Description

The T. Rowe Price Media and Telecommunications Fund (PRMTX) is an actively managed fund that focuses on stocks in the media, technology and telecommunications industries. These include firms that publish books, magazines and newspapers; produce movies and TV shows; and telephone and cellular services as well as related technology equipment stocks. PRMTX will hold only large- and mid-cap stocks but can hold domestic and foreign stocks as well.

Despite its low costs, PRMTX’s narrow focus makes it suitable only for a satellite position in an already diversified portfolio. The fund is internally managed by T. Rowe Price.
