Carrying Charge

Definition of Carrying Charge

Carrying charge or cost of carry is the money involved in the upkeep or general holding of an asset or financial instrument. Examples of carrying charges include maintenance costs, insurance, and others.

A carrying charge can increase the cost of owning an asset. At times, the cost of carry may exceed the potential returns, in which case an investor must evaluate whether the asset is worth keeping.

High Dividend Yield Stocks

High Dividend Yield Stocks are shares of companies that generate above average dividends on top of regular market-based returns. These shares are known to be valued highly because they generate passive income as well as capital gains.

Equity Delivery

In equity delivery, shares are delivered to an investor’s Demat account after the settlement period. That’s why it is called equity delivery. However, equity delivery is also known as delivery trading and long term investing.

For example, let’s say you place an order for 10 HDFC shares on Tuesday with a view of holding onto them for the long term. The trade will be settled on Thursday shortly after which the shares will be delivered to your Demat account.

Equity Trading

Equity trading refers to the buying and selling of equity shares on the primary and secondary market, either through a stock exchange or over the counter. Trading equity is done in many ways.

Some equity traders square-off their positions within one trading day. This is called intraday equity trading. Others look to ride price swings across days, weeks, or months. This is known as swing equity trading.

An individual who wants to engage in equity trading will need to open a trading & demat account. The charge for opening an equity trading account varies but the process is relatively simple.

Index Futures

Index futures are derivative instruments that track an underlying sectoral, thematic, or benchmark index like Nifty Bank, Finnifty, Nifty 50, and others. While trading index futures, a trader avoids individual share risk by trading an entire index.

Book Running Lead Manager

A book running lead manager is the head or lead of the underwriting process when new shares or securities are issued for their client, most commonly during an IPO.

For context, there was a time when physical ownership certificates were issued. If someone wanted to sell their shares, they’d have to present the ownership certificate and get it transferred to the buyer.

Also known as the book runner, the book running lead manager handles these crucial elements of the underwriting process:

  • Perform due diligence
  • Determine the final offering price
  • Record & track interested buyers
  • Confirm orders
  • Guarantee purchase

Assets And Liabilities

An asset is something that has monetary value and can generate profits in the future while a liability is a debt that’s repayable immediately or in the future. Assets are owned whereas liabilities as owed.
