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 'market flex' and ' Clear market provisions' in the context of Corporate loan market?

Loan-price volatility has ushered in a new era of flexible pricing, adding an element of unpredictability into the process for borrowers. Bankers are now leaving the door open for price adjustments up to the time the syndication closes, rather than locking in spreads in advance. It's difficult to price a loan today that will be taken to market in four to six weeks, given the increasingly volatile pricing environment. An issuer that feels strongly that it wants an underwritten price without market-flex language is typically going to get a less aggressively priced deal .fa_inline_results, .fa_inline_results.left { margin-right: 20px; float: left; width: 220px; } .fa_inline_results.right { margin-left: 20px; margin-right: 0; } .fa_inline_results h4 { margin: 0; font-size: 8pt; border-bottom: 1px dotted #c3d2dc; } .fa_inline_results ul { list-style-type: disc; list-style-position: outside; color: #3769DD; margin: 0 0 15px 15px; padding: 0; } .fa_inline_results ul li { margin: 0; padding: 0; } .fa_inline_results ul li.title { color: #333; list-style-type: none; font-weight: bold; } .fa_inline_results ul li.articles { color: #333; list-style-type: none; }

How do you become a licensed stock broker?

You must be sponsored by a stock exchange member then you must take and pass the Series 7 exam. You must also take and pass the Series 63 & 65, or you can just take the Series 66 (which includes both). Most people now are taking the Series 66 because it affords you the title of Registered Investment Advisor and allows you to recommend "managed accounts".

Advantages of Stock exchange?

There are three basic ways to trade stocks.

The first is investor-to-investor. I have a thousand shares of Coca-Cola and you want to buy 200 of those shares. Assuming I have certificates broken into 100-share lots, I will first figure out what the shares are worth (or what I would like to sell them for--there is NO law stating I can't take a stock that sells for $50 per share and sell it for $25), then give you a price. If you like it, you give me a check, I give you the certificate and we're good. The primary advantage is there's no brokerage fees. The primary disadvantage is I might not (and probably don't) have the shares you want.

The second is to buy stock directly from the company who issued it. Here the major problem is, you already need to be a shareholder to do this and not all companies do it.

The advantage of a stock exchange is it's got shares in many companies and it's easy to get the stock you want from them. The disadvantage is you have to be a brokerage to buy from a stock exchange; I can't just walk into the New York Stock Exchange and ask for a hundred shares of Pepsi. (Well, I COULD, but they'd tell me to go to my broker because it's not legal for an individual to buy directly from the exchange.)

Why does a company go for an IPO?

An IPO stands for Initial Public Offering. It is the process in which a large company issues shares to the general public for the first time to raise cash and capital for its expansion and business usage. There are two basic ways to raise money for something like an expansion: selling part of the equity of the company through a stock sale, and creating debt by selling bonds. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. In the case of selling equity, the major disadvantage is the loss of some of your autonomy. Investors hate to lose money, and want to make sure you're doing what it takes to make money. The upside is once you've sold the stock, you don't necessarily have any further expenditures. A lot of companies, especially high-tech ones, don't pay dividends. Also, dividends are paid out of after-tax profits. If you sell bonds, you must pay interest on time or risk default. The tradeoff here is there's not much loss of autonomy, and bond interest payments come out of pre-tax income.

Why it is so called red herring prospectus?

Source: Wikipedia

The term red herring originates from the tradition whereby young hunting dogs in Britain were trained to follow a scent with the use of a "red" (salted and smoked) herring (see kipper). This pungent fish would be dragged across a trail until the puppy learned to follow the scent. The reason it is called a red herring is due to a disclosure statement printed in red ink on the cover which explicitly states that the issuing company is not attempting to sell its shares. e.g. "A Registration Statement relating to these securities has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective. Information contained herein is subject to completion or amendment. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the Registration Statement becomes effective."
