T. Rowe Price Overseas Stocks many strengths remain intact; it retains its Morningstar Analyst Rating of Silver.

This foreign large-blend fund has two inherent advantages over the majority of its rivals. First, like most international-equity offerings in its family, it has below-average costs and thus enjoys a performance head start over most of its peers year after year. Second, T. Rowe Price is an excellent parent, and it has had considerable success with its actively run international-equity funds. (Eight of the firms nine other active international-stock funds with Analyst Ratings are Morningstar Medalists.)
