  • Flat : 

    This is a price that is neither rising nor declining. If the shares of a company have been trading at KES 12.00 over the last one month, they can be referred to as flat.

  • Unit Trust : 

    This is a collective investment scheme that pools funds together from small investors by issuing units and is constituted under a trust deed. The funds are invested in a wide range of securities and are managed by a professional manager.

  • Retained Earnings : 

    These are earnings not paid out as dividends but instead are reinvested in the core business or used to pay off debt.

  • 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.

  • Sell Off : 

    This is the rapid and widespread selling of a security e.g. shares, leading to a sudden drop in their prices. A sell off may occur when a company issues disappointing end of year results.
