Slight drop in securities prices after a sustained uptrend. Analysts often advise investors to buy on dips, meaning to buy when a price is momentarily weak. See: Correction, break, crash.


A small decrease in a security's price after a significant uptrend. Some investment advisers and technical analysts recommend buying after a dip if there are signals that the uptrend will continue afterwards. However, it is sometimes difficult to determine whether a dip is temporary or if it is the beginning of a trend reversal.


A small, short decline in a variable such as the price of a security or interest rates. A broker may advise a customer to accumulate a particular stock on dips. When the security begins declining in price, it is difficult to know if the decline is just a dip or if it is the initial step in a more substantial price reduction.


See debtor in possession.

Some cases showed focal areas with distal airspaces filled by alveolar macrophages in a pattern resembling desquamative interstitial pneumonia.
Pigmented macrophages typically accumulate in bronchioles and peribronchiolar airspaces, a lesion referred to as respiratory bronchiolitis, which may mimic desquamative interstitial pneumonia both radiologically and histologically (so called, desquamative interstitial pneumonia-like changes).
