Downside

In technical analysis and fundamental analysis, an estimate of the potential percentage or dollar amount by which a security may fall in the near-term. There are various methodologies used to determine an upside. For example, an analyst may look at recent trends on a bank stock and believe that it has the potential to fall in value by 15% in the next few weeks. This might be an indication for investors to sell the stock. Downside is also known as downside risk. See also: Upside Potential.
