Our Viewpoint

Although regulatory restrictions and sluggish economic recovery are likely to impair the company’s growth and escalate costs, T. Rowe Price’s diverse and efficient business model is anticipated to help it further improve AUM. Also, its organic growth remains impressive, as indicated by the continuous rise in revenues.

So, we believe, driven by these, the stock has gained 15.6% year to date, versus 4.4% decline recorded by the industry.

T. Rowe currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.
