Speed

Speed

1. In mortgage-backed securities, the estimated rate at which homeowners will pay off the underlying mortgages of an MBS. The equivalent of the coupon on a mortgage-backed security is a percentage of the interest and principal paid on the mortgages backing the security. A risk associated with mortgage-backed securities is that too many homeowners will pay off their mortgages with too much speed, depriving the holder of the MBS from future interest payments.

* it is immoral, and should be illegal, to classify children who learn differently as SPED instead of teaching them the way they learn (Dunn, Shea, Evans, & MacMurren, 1991).
Successful supervisors throughout the United States have described how SPED and other academically failing students reversed their poor academic patterns and evidenced statistically higher standardized achievement- and attitude-tests scores within one year of using learning-style strategies (Dunn & DeBello, 1999).
