Interest Sensitive Stock

(redirected from Rate Sensitivity)

Interest Sensitive Stock

A stock whose value is likely to increase or decrease substantially due to changes in interest rates. Most interest sensitive stocks represent publicly-traded companies with high rates of long-term debt. These companies' stocks decrease in value when interest rates rise because the higher cost of borrowing may result in lower profits and dividends. Conversely, their stocks rise on lower interest rates. For this reason, utility companies tend to have interest sensitive stocks.
