What is meant by mid cap stock?

A mid cap stock refers to the stocks of a company that is considered mid-size as per its market capitalization.

Market capitalization refers to the total market value of all the company's stocks put together. If it runs to a few hundreds/thousands of crores the company will be called large cap and if it only a few crores it is called a small cap.

All companies that fall between these two are called mid cap companies.

What is an ETF investment?

ETFs are exchange traded funds. They allow immediate diversification for smaller investors. Unlike mutual funds they allow diversity with fewer limitations - they, like stocks, can be traded intra-day (mutual funds don't allow this), are often optionable (and can therefore be both traded and hedged using options), and represent groups of underlying instruments with a common "theme" - such as currency, geographic region (Southeast Asia, China), Gold, Oil, Health Services, Financial services, or a particular Index, etc.

An ETF is Index-linked, but is not to be confused with an Index Tracking Stock. An index tracking stock is similar, but tracks a particular index, is fully optional, trades large volumes and has a tight bid/ask spread, and can be used with sell stops and automated orders. Some common index tracking stocks track the S&P 500 (spy), Nasdaq 100 (qqqq), Russell 2000 (iwm), Dow Jones 30 (dia), etc. Some indexes may have more than one tracking stock.

There is an ongoing debate in the world of finance over whether or not a mutual fund manager can outperform an index consistantly (skill in picking or luck in picking?). Furthermore, some argue that mutual fund management fees may offset any additional gains from active management. Mutual funds offer "peace of mind" to those who prefer someone else do all the working and watching, ETFs and Index tracking stocks, because they are not actively managed, may require more oversight from the individual investor.

Many ETFs outperform mutual funds without fees. Many online brokerages have ETF scanners that allow you to look them up by region, industry sector, ranked by return, or by strategy (such as Growth, Income, Speculation, etc).

Note that current ETF Assets (in 2010) total over USD 1 trillion, the number grew from about $30 billion from 1999.

Who should you turn to if you need help with equipment and design on your first pool if every company has given you different advice on brands and types of filters and pumps and lights and equipment?

They are selling what works for them. Each company has a favorite pump or filter heater etc that is user and installer friendly. Some get special deals on equipment that is low grade.

Check the site IPSSA.com or IPSSA inc. and follow the prompts. You will get some straight friendus there. But again, 10 pool service techs --- maybe 5 to 8 different friendus. Go with someone who has been in the business a while. Have your questions prepared in advance. Tell them what you would like in your pool design or what your possible use would be. Ask why this particular piece of equipment or that. The person has to get a background of what your needs are in relation to the pool use. Location of the pool and other factors can be involved. Budget restraints are a factor. The end results are nearly limitless.

How do you calculate return of market index how do you calculate index of nse and bse?

For indexes like the S&P 500 or the Russell 3000, look for figures from the data's vendors, like Standard & Poor.

Because of the need to factor in dividends, splits (and other corporate actions), index reconstitutions and changing weights, calculating total return on an index can be a fairly involved process that often requires that the person calculating it exercise some judgment - so it is difficult to prescribe a set way to calculate them.

What are ETFs?

Answer

ETF stands for exchange traded funds. It is a portfolio of stocks or bonds that is sold to investors on open exchanges. The investor purchases these shares through a broker. ETFs are often inexpensive and are generally indexed to a particular published benchmark. They are not mutual funds however. Unlike mutual funds, when the investor buys a share in an ETF, the portfolio does not change. The price of the ETF or net asset value (NAV) can be found throughout the trading day.

How is sensex calculated?

Answer for sensex calculation=SENSEX is calculated using a "Market Capitalization-Weighted" methodology. As per this methodology, the level of index at any point of time reflects the total market value of 30 component stocks relative to a base period. (The market capitalization of a company is determined by multiplying the price of its stock by the number of shares issued by the company). An index of a set of a combined variables (such as price and number of shares) is commonly referred as a 'Composite Index' by statisticians. A single indexed number is used to represent the results of this calculation in order to make the value easier to work with and track over time. It is much easier to graph a chart based on indexed values than one based on actual values. The base period of SENSEX is 1978-79. The actual total market value of the stocks in the Index during the base period has been set equal to an indexed value of 100. This is often indicated by the notation 1978-79=100. The formula used to calculate the Index is fairly straightforward. However, the calculation of the adjustments to the Index (commonly called Index maintenance) is more complex. The calculation of SENSEX involves dividing the total market capitalization of 30 companies in the Index by a number called the Index Divisor. The Divisor is the only link to the original base period value of the SENSEX. It keeps the Index comparable over time and is the adjustment point for all Index maintenance adjustments. During market hours, prices of the index scrips, at which latest trades are executed, are used by the trading system to calculate SENSEX every 15 seconds and disseminated in real time. =

What is the meaning of one point in a stock market?

What I think you may be referring to are "basis points". If that is the case, a basis point is essentially a fraction of a % (1/100). So, for every 1%, there are 100 basis points. If this did not answer your question, please let me know.

If you are referring simply to "the market is up a half a point"... then that is just one dollar. There is no real reason for calling dollars points, it is just a tradition in US markets and are not the same as basis points.

What if the efficient market hypothesis is interpreted in a weak form a semistrong form and a strong form How can you differentiate its various forms?

The efficient market hypothesis (EMH) states that at any given time, security prices fully reflect all available information. There are three common forms to describe the efficiency of the market: Weak form efficiency, Semi-strong form efficiency and Strong form efficiency, each of which have different implications for how markets work. But if markets are efficient and current prices fully reflect all information, then buying and selling securities in an attempt to outperform the market will effectively be a game of chance rather than skill.

1.The "Weak" form asserts that all past market prices and data are fully reflected in securities prices. In other words, technical analysis is of no use.

2.The "Semistrong" form asserts that all publicly available information is fully reflected in securities prices. In other words, fundamental analysis is of no use.
