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.

There appeared an upper yield point on the stress--strain curves, and the stress value at the upper yield point increased with aging time and exceeds that of the annealed specimen.
One can notice that small approximation differences (as is the case with Herschel-Bulkley curve) amount to large estimation differences in terms of viscosity especially prior to the yield point.
The copolymer material stress-strain curves rapidly increased to a low yield point followed by a decay period of slow stress decline with a faster rate of strain incline.

This result indicates that bending moment capacity at the 5 percent yield level amounts to 55 percent of the ultimate moment capacity and that a reasonably regular relationship exists between the 5 percent yield point and ultimate moment, which tends to indicate that a rational basis for estimating the usable strength of such joints can be developed.
