VOLATILITY, in securities, is the measurement of the change in price over a given time period. It is often expressed as a percentage and computed as the annualized standard deviation of percentage change in daily price.
HOLDING COMPANY is a company which owns or controls other companies. (Control can occur through the ownership of 50 per cent or more of the voting rights or through the exercise of a dominant influence.).
TEASER RATE, in lending, is the initial rate set on adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) by the lender to attract prospective borrowers. It is the coupon rate an investor earns in the first year.
