Value Fund

A mutual fund that invests predominantly or exclusively in stocks that have a great deal of growth potential. These stocks may be undervalued and have an exceptionally low P/E ratio. Likewise, these stocks may pay dividends on a regular basis.

Value fund.

When a mutual fund manager buys primarily undervalued stocks for the fund's portfolio with the expectation that these stocks will increase in price, that fund is described as a value fund.

A value fund may be limited to stocks of a certain size, such as those included in a small-cap value fund, or it may include undervalued stocks with different levels of capitalization.
