1. Discounted dividend model. A formula for determining the projected return on a stock by estimating the present value of future dividends. One compares the discounted dividend return to the current stock price, and, if the former is higher, it indicates that the stock is undervalued. More than one DDM is used to calculate the dividend discount return, but it is important to note that they all assume that the stock will in fact pay dividends, which may not always be the case.

2. ISO 4217 code for the East German mark. It was in use between 1948 and 1990, when it was theoretically pegged to the (West German) deutschemark at par, but it was largely inconvertible. After German reunification in 1990, the deutschemark replaced the East German mark.
