DEDICATED TRANSACTIONS, in securities, is a list all the transactions (including cash) for each portfolio together with any relevant fees and notes. And, not only can one monitor profit/loss but you can also chart the historical valuation of a portfolio, monitor the annualized rate of return, compare portfolio performance against indices or sectors and chart the performance of different constituents of a portfolio on a single chart.
RECEIVERSHIP is equitable remedy whereby a court orders property placed under the control of a RECEIVER so that it may be preserved for the benefit of affected parties. A failing company may be placed in receivership in an action brought by its creditors. The business is often continued but is subject to the receivers control. See also BANKRUPTCY.
FIXED ASSETS (NET) / NET WORTH measures liquidity by comparing "fixed" assets with "fixed" capital. A lower ratio indicates proportionately smaller investment and a better "cushion" for creditors in case of liquidation. This may be important if the fixed assets are not easily used in other businesses. The presence of substantial leased fixed assets (not shown on the balance sheet) may deceptively lower this ratio. Therefore smaller is better, i.e., greater than .75 (75%) should merit caution.
