Investor Education

  • Financial Institution : 

    A financial institution is a money management company e.g. a bank that collects cash deposits from the public and invests or lends to borrowers. Some of these institutions have very large funds and can influence the prices of securities in the stock market considerably.

    .
  • Dilution of Equity : 

    This is a decrease in the ownership value of a share as a result of increasing the number of shares. An increase in the number of shares can be brought about by issuing new shares; when convertible bonds (or debentures or any other long term loans) are converted to shares; or after the issue of a bonus. Dilution lowers the book value and earnings per share.

    .
  • Dry Run Portfolio : 

    It is also known as paper trade. It is an imaginary portfolio of shares, constructed and monitored regularly by an investor over a period of time without actually buying the shares. The investor acquires experience on the ups and downs of the stock market at no financial cost or risk. With time, the investor garners enough confidence to actually invest in the stock market.

    .
  • Narrowing the Spread : 

    This is shortening the gap between the price that a buyer is offering to pay for a share (bid price), and the price a seller is quoting to sell it at (ask price). As the spread narrows, more buyers and sellers join in and the stock is traded more actively. It is also called price improvement.

    .
  • Nominee : 

    A nominee is a person, bank or stockbroker in whose name securities are transferred in order to facilitate transactions.
