Aggressive-growth mutual funds buy stock in companies that show rapid growth potential, including start-up companies and those in hot sectors.

Their values may rise much higher - and fall much lower - than the overall stock market or the mutual funds that invest in the broader market.Yahoo Finance - Cite This Source - This Definition
