About The Portfolio Manager: Brian Rogers
Mr. Rogers, the manager of the $11.5 billion T. Rowe Price Equity Income fund since its inception in 1985.  While the financial markets and the global economy remain troubled, T. Rowe Price Chairman and Chief Investment Officer, Brian Rogers, believes the overwhelming crisis of fear gripping the markets is overshadowing a brighter long-term outlook. In fact, in contrast to the irrational exuberance that propelled the late 1990s bull market, Mr. Rogers thinks we may have entered a period of “irrational pessimism” that could present opportunities for long-term investors.

“I am not sure the long-term prospects of the global economy are as negative as seem to be reflected in the crisis,” says Mr. Rogers.

In an interview on October 7, 2008, with Steve Forbes, president and editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine, Mr. Rogers stressed the investment opportunities in the current situation.

Rogers recently stated, ''Now, dividends are in vogue again.'' He said that he expects more companies to pay dividends as part of their corporate finance strategies, prompted in part by the recent tax cut, which reduced the top rate on dividends to 15 percent.
Excerpt from prospectus/fund overview: The fund seeks to provide substantial dividend income as well as long-term growth of capital through investments in the common stocks of established companies.

The fund will normally invest at least 80% of its net assets in common stocks, with 65% in the common stocks of well-established companies paying above average

The fund typically employs a “value” approach in selecting investments. Our in-house research team seeks companies that appear to be undervalued by various
measures and may be temporarily out of favor but have good prospects for capital appreciation and dividend growth.
