Stock Market words - For the New Investors (Beginners)

Post by swan03 on Wed Mar 23, 2011 9:19 am

Hi guys,

I have seen so many questions in this forum regarding Stock Market Words. I guess this will help beginners to understand the meaning of some common words.

There are currently two indices in the CSE
1. ASPI- The All Share Price Index
2. MPI - The Milanka Price Index

What are the type of shares?

1.Ordinary Shares (N) - A right to vote at the company General meeting.
2.Non-voting ordinary shares (X) - These shares have the characteristics of ordinary shares except the right to vote at the company General meeting.
3. Preference Shares (P) - Most preference shares have a pre-determined dividend rate which you are entitled to receive.
4. Warrants (W) - This is certificate giving you the right to buy shares at a stipulated price at a future date.

Stock Market words

1. Allotment letter - A document showing that you have been allotted a certain number of newly issued shares.
2. Annual general meeting (AGM) - Every company must have an AGM each year, to allow shareholders to vote on the accounts, directors and dividends and question the board on the company's affairs.
3. Annual Report - The yearly independently audited report to shareholders which must be produced by all publicly quoted companies.
4. Bargain - The term for any deal on the stock exchange, purchase or sale.
5. Bear Market - Someone who thinks that the price of a share or stock market prices in general are about to fall.
6. Bid price - The price you sell your stocks or shares.
7. Blue chip - The shares of large well established companies.
8. Bull Market - Someone who thinks that the price of a share or the market in general is about to rise.
9. Dividend - The part of a company's profits distributed to shareholders, usually on a regular basis. An interim dividend is paid at the half-year stage and a final dividend at the end of the full year.
10. Earnings Per Share (EPS) - A company's profits (after payment of interest and preference share dividends) dividend by the number of shares issued.
11. Liquid Stock - is a stock with a lot of volume that is easy to buy and sell.
12. Price-earnings ratio (P/E) - This is calculated by taking the current earnings (profits after certain deductions) of the company and dividing them by the number of shares issued. This gives the earnings by share figure. It is then divided into the current share price which gives the P/E ratio. See also Earnings per share.
13. Prospectus - An independently audited document detailing a company's financial history and current situation and published ahead of a new share issue.

Re: Stock Market words - For the New Investors (Beginners)

Post by anubis on Wed Mar 23, 2011 3:24 pm

Hi,

Many many thanks for this explanation! Now, being a newbie I have few more n00b questions Surprised

1. So, "X" shares also get the same dividend except that we don't get the right to vote. From a small scale investor's perspective, does this mean that we're better off with "X" shares? I mean it's not that we can change any company decisions with our puny little amounts of voting shares right? Or is it the case that non-voting shares experience less capital gain compared to voting shares?

2. I saw some "R" type of shares, like REEF.R000, what are those?

3. Which companies provide "P" type of shares you mentioned? Is there a way I can search? (sounds more reliable) Smile

4. For warrant shares, where can I find the amount I need to pay in order to convert them to normal shares when the date arrives?

Thanks again Smile

I have 2 questions that I need help with.

01. When the a share is trading with the abbreviation "XR" next to it what does that mean? (ie Nation Lanka XR)

02. If a company announces a rights issue ie. 1:2 what does that mean?

Appreciate if anyone can help...

This is about Rights Issue
http://forum.srilankaequity.com/t1572-rights-issue-for-new-investors?highlight=rights

Be careful when buying Rights, because you have to pay some additional amount to convert them. So learn the basics before buying rights.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

R mean Right
X mean Non Voting Shares
N mean Voting Shares

B=BONUS
W=WARRANTS
P=PREFERENCE
U=UNITS

I think D is for debentures (not sure)

@evarts
1)
XR - Ex Rights - Shares of stock that are trading but no longer have rights attached because they have either expired, been transferred to another investor or been exercised. The rights originally assigned to the stockholder are, for whatever reason, no longer valid or no longer applicable to the stock.

If XR is a date that means to claim rights you have to buy before the XR date.

Similarly
XD - Ex Dividend - should have shares before this date to be eligible for Dividends
XC - Ex Scrip or Ex capitalisation - should have shares before this date to be eligible for Scrip

2) If 1:2 rights issued - For every two shares you own you are given the right to purchase one new share at a discounted price

a discussion about a rights issue, might be useful to you - http://forum.srilankaequity.com/t1884-lankem-development-rights-issue-help-needed

Experts please correct if I have written something wrong.

And some one will have to answer anubis's questions
