Fit

The matching of the investor's requirements and needs such as risk tolerance and growth potential preference with a specific investment. Also, how well or how poorly a regression line represents the data points it is based on. A good ‘fit’ indicates a high correlation coefficient.

Fit

To meet the needs of an investor or portfolio. That is, a security fits a portfolio if it has the acceptable amount of risk, return, meets the investor's ethical preferences, and so forth.

fit

A condition in which a security fulfills an investor's portfolio needs. For example, an investor may select a new municipal bond because that bond's maturity makes it a good fit in the investor's portfolio.

Although high positive relationships between AY0 and AY1 IPA IPW and MGR were found (P less than 0.01) in two models but negative correlations were estimated between AY0 and AY2 in Gompertz (P less than 0.01) on the other hand higher positive correlation value was estimated as + greater than 0.999 between AY0 and IPA in growth curve parameters of each model.The results of goodness of fit in Gompertz and Logistic growth curve models for female and male broilers of GBJA S757 genotype are presented in Table5.

Significance Tests and Goodness of Fit In the Analysis of Covariance Structures.
A graphical depiction of the data with the elimination of special process causes, coupled with an evaluation of the goodness of fit to a distribution with a basis in theory, leads to a fundamental understanding of the process under analysis.
A confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to assess the goodness of fit of this modified GRP scale in the China sub-sample.
The purpose of the present study is to establish through confirmatory factor analysis which of the two models (originally proposed, tetra-dimensional model or the corrected model with three factors that integrates ability and condition into one factor) has the best goodness of fit to the data.
Confirmatory factor analysis is used mainly to process the relationship between indicator variable and latent variable in order to test the goodness of fit of the theoretical model (Hoyle, 1995).
Additional questions need to be asked and answered to insure a goodness of fit between the student's strengths, goals, and weaknesses and a post secondary educational program's strengths, goals, and weaknesses.
