# Point

A distinct proposition or Question of Law arising or propounded in a case. In the case of shares of stock, a point means \$1. In the case of bonds a point means \$10, since a bond is quoted as a percentage of \$1,000. In the case of market averages, the word point means merely that and no more. If, for example, the Dow-Jones Industrial Average rises from 8,349.25 to 8,350.25, it has risen a point. A point in this average, however, is not equivalent to \$1.

With respect to the home mortgage finance industry, a fee or charge of one percent of the principal of the loan that is collected by the lender at the time the loan is made and is in addition to the constant long-term stated interest rate on the face of the loan.
