Underweighted

Business / Taxes / Underweighted: When you own less of a security, an asset class, or a subclass than your target asset allocation calls for, you are said to be underweighted in that security, asset class, or subclass. For example, if you have decided to invest 30% of your portfolio in fixed-income investments, but your fixed-income holdings account for only 10% of your portfolio, you are underweighted in fixed income. In another use of the term, a securities analyst might recommend underweighting a particular security, which you might reasonably interpret as advice to sell.
