ELIGIBLE is a security for which one or more Market Makers has received clearance to quote the issue on the OTCBB in the last 30 days. Securities receive eligible status if they are cleared following the filing of a Form 211 or a 15c2-11 Exemption Form. A frequency of quotation test is administered during the eligible period. Until the test is satisfied, any other Market Maker that wishes to quote the issue must also submit a completed Form 211.
COST-PLUS is determining payment based on the actual cost of production or service provisioning plus an agreed-upon fee or rate of profit; for example, a cost-plus government contract.
OPPORTUNITY COST is widely used in business planning in evaluating capital investment. A company measures the projected return against the anticipated return it would receive on a highest yielding alternative investment that contains a similar risk profile.
