Overweight

Usually refers to recommendation that leads an investor to increase their investment in a particular security or asset class. The increase is usually with respect to a benchmark. Suppose that U.S. equities compose 40% of the benchmark portfolio. If one thinks the U.S. will outperform, the investor may increase the exposure to U.S. equity to more than 40%.

Overweight

For example, an overweight portfolio may be overexposed to the financial industry, which means if the financial industry suffers a downturn the portfolio will decline in value more than other similar portfolios.
