Gain

A profit on a securities transaction recognized by selling a security for more than the security originally cost. The gain is the difference between the cost and the sale.

Gain

An increase in price or value. For example, if a stock opens at $10 and closes at $12, it is said to gain $2. Likewise, if one buys a house for $200,000, and its value is later assessed $325,000, the house has gained $125,000. See also: Capital gains, Paper gain, Uptick.

gain

The excess of the amount received as opposed to the amount expended in a transaction. For example, receipt of $4,500 from the sale of an asset with a book value of $3,000 results in a gain of $1,500. Compare loss.

gain

The profit on the sale of an asset.One may realize gain,as when property is taken in condemnation, but not recognize gain for tax purposes until a later date. When reading tax advice, it is extremely important to differentiate between these two concepts, as authors sometimes assume that all readers understand the difference.

Gain

The excess of the amount realized from a sale or exchange over the adjusted basis of the property sold or exchanged.

Higher BER values at shorter lengths of HNLF is explained by insufficient amplification of the signal, but the increase for higher lengths of HNLF is associated with the increase of fiber nonlinearity produced signal impairments that, in its turn, causes significant decrease of amplified signal quality.
