Investor Education

  • Staying Power : 

    This is the ability of the investor to hold on to a share, even when its price has fallen, for an eventual recovery and is crucial in any investment strategy. One of the golden rules of investment in the stock market therefore is: Do not invest in shares money which you may need. 

    .
  • Retail Investor : 

    A retail investor is an individual who buys or sells small amounts of shares for his/her individual account. A retail investor is also called an individual investor or a small investor.

    .
  • Profit Warning : 

    This is an announcement made by a public company in advance before announcing its earnings indicating that its profits won’t meet previously held expectations. Companies do this to soften the blow to investors.

    .
  • Maturity Date : 

    The date on which the principal amount on a debt e.g. bond, is due and is repaid to the investor. The maturity date depends on the terms of the debt.

    .
  • 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.
