  • Indexing : 

    Indexing is an investment strategy in which a portfolio is designed to mirror the performance of a stock index.

  • Capital Structure : 

    The capital structure is how a company finances its overall operations and growth by using different sources of funds like long term debt, short term debt, common equity and preferred equity.

  • Term to Maturity : 

    This is the time between when a bond is issued and when it matures, at which time the issuer must redeem the bond and pay the principal (face value). Typically, a longer term to maturity has a greater yield and vice versa.

  • Hot Issue : 

    A hot issue is an initial public offering (IPO) that is in great demand. Hot issues are normally oversubscribed. An example is the Safaricom IPO in 2008.

  • Order Imbalance : 

    This is a situation in which buy orders for a particular stock greatly outnumber the sell orders or vice versa, making it impossible to match the orders. It is also referred to as an imbalance of orders.
