  • Earnings per Share : 

    This is the portion of a company’s profit after tax that is allocated to each ordinary share. It is calculated by dividing the net profit by the number of ordinary shares. It serves as an indicator of the company’s profitability and is considered the single most important variable in determining a share’s price.

  • Reinvestment : 

    This is when an investor uses the dividends, interest or profit from an investment to buy more of that investment, rather than receiving a cash pay-out. 

    .
  • Basis Point : 

    One hundredth of a percentage point. Example; the difference between 4.50% and 4.75% is 25 basis points.

    .
  • Index : 

    A stock market index is a statistical measure of the state of the stock market, based on the performance of a number of representative stocks. Each index (from different stock markets across the world) has its own calculation methodology and is usually expressed in terms of a change from a base value. Thus, a percentage change of the index is more important than its numeric value. The index is usually considered to be reasonably representative of the performance of the stock market as a whole.

    .
  • Diversification : 

    This is limiting investment risk by purchasing different types of securities from different companies representing different sectors of the economy.
