Annual Report

Fund Summary as of December 31, 2016

The Small-Cap Value Fund returned 28.97% in its fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, with the bulk of those gains coming in the second half of the period.

This return outpaced the gain of the Russell 2000 Index as well as those of our small-cap peers.

The fund modestly trailed the Russell 2000 Value Index—an outcome we might expect given our focus on higher-quality shares, which did not fare as well as heavily indebted or nonearning stocks in the robust rally.

Market Environment Stocks delivered very strong returns in the six months since our last report, and small-cap value stocks were among the very best performers. Investor sentiment got a boost from improving economic data in the second half of the year, which demonstrated that the slowdown in growth at the start of 2016 was likely temporary.

After having slowed dramatically in May, monthly payroll gains picked up substantially in the summer and maintained decent momentum through the remainder of the year.

The tightening labor market pushed up wages and boosted consumer confidence, which fed through to improved retail spending. The manufacturing sector slowed a bit in the summer but regained

The rebound in the housing sector continued, with home sales reaching peaks not seen since before the 2008–2009 collapse of the housing market. The passing of the November elections provided another boost to the stock market.

With the uncertainty resolved, and the bitterness of the campaign season subsiding, stocks broadly rose through the end of the year. Many market participants anticipated faster economic growth in response to proposed fiscal stimulus and possible deregulation.

Investors particularly favored companies that stand to benefit from lower corporate taxes, deregulation, and increased infrastructure and defense spending. The financials sector fared especially well, as investors looked forward not only to lighter regulation but also higher interest rates and lending margins.T.rowe-Annual-Report

Summary Prospectus


Investment Objective

The fund seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in small companies whose common stocks are believed to be undervalued.

Investments, Risks, and Performance Principal Investment Strategies

Reflecting a value approach to investing, the fund will seek the stocks of companies whose current stock prices do not appear to adequately reflect their underlying value as measured by assets, earnings, cash flow, or business franchises.

Normally, the fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (including any borrowings for investment purposes) in companies with a market capitalization that is within or below the range of companies in the Russell 2000 Index.

As of December 31, 2016, the market capitalization range for the Russell 2000 Index was approximately $20.0 million to $13.4 billion.

The market capitalization of the companies in the fund’s portfolio and the Russell 2000 Index changes over time, and the fund will not sell a stock just because the company has grown to a market capitalization outside the range. The fund may, on occasion, purchase companies with a market capitalization above the range. Our in-house research team seeks to identify companies that appear to be undervalued by various measures, and may be temporarily out of favor, but have good prospects for capital appreciation.

In selecting investments, we generally look for some of the following:

• low price/earnings, price/book value, or price/cash flow ratios relative to the Russell 2000 Index, the company’s peers, or its own historical norm;

• low stock price relative to a company’s underlying asset values;

• above-average dividend yield relative to a company’s peers or its own historical norm;

• a plan to improve the business through restructuring; and

• a sound balance sheet and other positive financial characteristics. In pursuing its investment objective, the fund has the discretion to deviate from its normal investment criteria.

These situations might arise when the fund’s adviser believes a security could increase in value for a variety of reasons, including an extraordinary corporate event, a new product introduction or innovation, a favorable competitive development, or a change in management.

While most assets will typically be invested in U.S. common stocks, including real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) that pool money to invest in properties and mortgages, the fund may also invest in foreign stocks in keeping with the fund’s objectives.

The fund may sell securities for a variety of reasons, such as to secure gains, limit losses, or redeploy assets into more promising opportunities.


Fact Sheet
