ASSET BACKED SECURITY is a debt instrument collateralized by credit card receivables, auto loans or other assets and securitized by a bank or financial institution. To reduce the possibility of a disruption in principal and interest payments, the cash flow from these assets is enhanced by a variety of methods including letter of credit support, insurance, overcollateralization and excess interest.

YIELD ON STOCK is the percentage of the annual dividend to the current price of the stock, e.g., a $30 stock with a dividend of $2.00 has a yield of 6.6%.
