Fund Description

The T. Rowe Price Growth Stock Fund (PRGFX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that focuses on the long-term growth of capital. The fund hones its mandate to large-cap U.S. growth stocks, though it can own foreign equities as well. PRGFX uses various screens to find stocks that have proven track records and that have the ability to pay increasing dividends through strong cash flows.

PRGFX makes a great choice for investors looking to overweight growth stocks versus a broad index fund, or as a core offering when placing it with a similarly styled value fund. The fund is internally managed by T. Rowe Price.
