  • Pivotal Shares : 

    Sometimes the shares of some blue chip companies act as a pivot on which the market is balanced; if the turn bearish, the market follows and if they turn bullish the market looks up. These are called pivotal shares.

    .
  • Liquidity : 

    This is the ability of an asset e.g. shares, to be bought or sold without affecting its price. Liquid assets are those that can be easily bought or sold without any significant change in price. Such assets are normally characterized by a high level of trading activity. A company which has issued a large number of shares is said to have liquid stock in the market. Investors find it safer to buy such stock because it is easier to get their money out of the investment if they need to do so.

  • Eating Stock : 

    Eating stock is when you purchase shares because you are forced to do so and not because you desire to purchase it.

    .
  • Treasury Bill (T-Bill) : 

    A treasury bill is a short term debt obligation with a maturity of one year or less, issued and fully guaranteed by the Kenyan Government, payable to the bearer. Treasury bills are sold on a discount basis so that the yield is the difference between the purchase price and the face value. Example; you may buy a treasury bill with a face value of KES 100,000 at a discounted price of KES 95,000. The yield to you is the KES 5,000 difference. T-bills offer the government short term financing.

    .
  • Issuer : 

    This is the company or government that is offering (or has already offered) stocks or bonds for sale to investors for the purpose of financing its operations.
