Fund Description

The T. Rowe Price Blue Chip Growth Fund (TRBCX) is apart of the T. Rowe Price fund family. The fund was launched on June 30, 1993 and has been managed by Larry J. Puglia since its inception. The fund seeks to obtain long term growth from blue chip stocks.

The primary objective for this fund is to provide long term capital growth, while its secondary objective is to provide income. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets into common stocks that are considered large or medium sized. These stocks are typically in solid, well established industries that carry less risk for investors. The company’s holdings that it chooses for the fund also tend to be reliable dividend payers. The fund distributes its dividend annually.

The fund is very diversified sector wise. The largest sectors by percentage of stocks are consumer goods, healthcare, industrial goods and technology. The majority of these holdings are based in the Americas region, although the fund will occasionally add foreign exposure.

The fund has total assets under management (AUM) of about $25 billion and is compiled of some of the most well known companies in the United States. Typically, this fund holds about 100 stocks at a given time. While this fund is focused on blue chip stocks, it is only heavily interested in growth stocks. Therefore, the stocks chosen to be included in the fund are usually well known blue chip stocks that have growth potential.

Although all investments carry risk, this fund can be considered a conservative investment since it invests in a large number of well established companies. Companies included in the fund have strong management, financial stability and strong market position.

The fund requires an initial deposit of $2,500 or $1,000 for an IRA account. Additional contributions are required to be at least $100.
