72
Rule of 72

A rule stating that in order to find the number of years required to double your money at a given interest rate, you divide the compound return into 72. The result is the approximate number of years that it will take for your investment to double.

For example, if you want to know how long it will take to double your money at 12% interest, divide 12 into 72 and you get six years.

CULS
Convertible Unsecured Loan Stock

CULS are convertible unsecured loan stocks. A loan stock is a security issued by a company for a loan made to it by investors. CULS combine certain advantages of bonds (which are loans securities) with the option of converting into ordinary shares. The bond characteristics of CULS are they pay investors a fixed rate of interest to the holder at specific dates, usually bi-annually, as spelt out in the CULS agreeement and the undertaking to repay the principal sum on its maturity in the case of the redeemable loan stocks. The equity part of CULS materialises when they are converted into shares and the investor can enjoy possibilities of capital appreciation. Upon conversion into shares, the Number of Shares Outstanding (NOSH) is increased.

ICULS
Irredeemable Convertible Unsecured Loan Stock

A type of security that can be used to purchase underlying common shares. It is similar to a warrant except that it is subject to the conversion ratio. In essence, an ICULS provides the benefits of a bond until it is converted to an equity. If the loan stocks are irredeemable, the holder must convert the ICULS into shares on maturity (normally after four or five years) at a predetermined conversion ratio and conversion price. Upon conversion into shares, the Number of Shares Outstanding (NOSH) is increased.

Reverse Split
Reverse Stock Split

A reduction in the number of a corporation's shares outstanding that increases the par value of its stock or its earnings per share. The market value of the total number of shares (market capitalization) remains the same.

For example, a 1-for-2 reverse split means you get half as many shares, but at twice the price. It's usually a bad sign if a company is forced to reverse split - firms do it to make their stock look more valuable when, in fact, nothing has changed. A company may also do a reverse split to avoid being delisted.
