Who Is This For?

Investors seeking

capital appreciation who can accept the price declines inherent in common stock investing but prefer a strategy that focuses on reducing risk as much as maximizing gains. All mutual funds are subject to market risk, including loss of principal.

Diversification cannot assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market. As with all mutual funds, these funds are subject to market risk, including possible loss of principal.

Current performance may be lower or higher than the quoted past performance, which cannot guarantee future results. Share price, principal value, and return will vary and you may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. Average annual total return figures include changes in principal value, reinvested dividends, and capital gain distributions.

(1) The fund is closed to new investors. No new accounts or initial purchases from intermediary or direct customers will be accepted after June 30,2014. Existing shareholders of the fund may continue to make subsequent purchases. By closing or restricting access to the funds to new investors, we believe we will preserve our ability to achieve the fund's objectives.

(2) The T. Rowe Price Funds-Advisor Class share the portfolio of an existing fund (the original share class of the fund is referred to as the "investor class"). The total return figures for Advisor Class shares have been calculated using the performance data of the investor class up to the inception date of the Advisor Class (shown above) and the actual performance results of the Advisor Class since that date. (The inception date for the investor class is shown in its Average Annual Returns table.) The performance results of the investor class have not been adjusted to reflect the 12b-1 fee associated with the Advisor Class (0.25%). Had this fee been included, the performance would have been lower.

Note: Analysis represents the equity-only performance of the portfolio as calculated by the Wilshire Atlas attribution model, and is exclusive of cash, trusts, mutual funds, de-listed securities and other non-equity holdings. Returns will not match official TRP performance because Wilshire uses different pricing and exchange rate sources and does not capture intra-day trading or fair-value pricing. Performance for each security is obtained in the local currency and, if necessary, is converted to U.S. Dollars using an exchange rate determined by an independent third party.
