The number of shares outstanding minus what is owned by insiders and what the company is holding back (treasury stock).
The float is the number of shares held by the general public. The higher the float (public vs. outstanding) the less volatile the stock is considered. If the stock has a small float, a single, large transaction is likely to affect its price.

Electing to not lock in the interest rate between the time of application and closing.
MP] Allowing the interest rate and points to vary with changes in market conditions, as opposed to "locking" them.
Another name for the rack of chips on the dealer's side of the table. The term "float" refers to the rack itself, the "float cover" a locking lid placed over the float when the table is not in use.
While applying for a loan, floating is letting the rates and points fluctuate with the market, without locking them down. This can be hazardous to the borrower, who can lock the interest rate at any time.
Primitive data type representing a floating point signed 64-bit number.

The hollow, metallic ball of a self-acting faucet, which floats upon the water in a cistern or boiler.
The hollow, metallic ball which floats on the fuel in the fuel tank of a vehicle to indicate the level of the fuel surface, and thus the amount of fuel remaining.

The part of a warp or weft thread that passes over ("floats") over two or more threads of the ground weave. Floats are parts of supplementary warps or wefts, because they are not part of the ground weave; they are decorative.
a thread that is incorporated into the ground in such a way as to have longer lengths where it is not attached
As the cards are turned each thread rises to the surface for one pick, then descends again. A thread which stays on the surface is called a float, or sometimes a long float. For example, turning a card forwards and then backwards on the next pick will cause the same thread to be on top for two consecutive picks. Floats of two or three, or even four picks are not a problem, but if they become too long the thread will lie loose on top of the band and can catch on something.
In a plain weave, carrying a weft over two or more adjacent warps or carrying a warp over two or more adjacent wefts.
Pieces of vein material or rock which become separated from the main body by weathering processes.
Pieces of rock or ore which have been separated from a larger, in situ, body of ore by natural forces.
rock separated from the parent vein by weathering.
Fragments of ore that had broken off a main vein to become buried rock outcropping.
A buoyancy device on both emergency and discharge valves to actuate opening and closing of the valve.Â For the discharge valve, when the float is up the valve to discharge chlorinated solution is open.Â For the ESV, float is up the inlet valve for the chlorinator is closed.
Used here to describe the inner part of a cellarbuoy or FoB Chamber that causes "shut-off" when the liquid level is low.
A ball or doughnut shape connected to the fill valve or water supply valve. It rises or falls with changing water level in the tank, and actuates or shuts off the fill as needed.
A chamber which floats in the fuel in the float bowl. The float is attached to and controls the inlet fuel valve (needle and seat). When the fuel level goes down, the float sinks and opens the inlet valve; when the fuel level rises to the "full" level, the float rises with it and closes the inlet valve. Floats are made of brass, nitrophyl or molded plastic.

Indicates that if there is not enough room on the current page for an example or figure, the text processor will fill the current page with the text from the source file that follows the EXAMPLE or FIGURE tag sequence and place the example or figure at the top of the next page of output.
An object such as a graphic or table that can float out of the normal flow of text to a new position on a printed page.
Text objects like sidebars, figures, tables, and graphics are said to float when their actual place in the document is not fixed. For presentation on a printed page, for instance, a graphic may float to the top of the next page if it is too tall to fit on the page in which it actually falls, in the sequence of words and the sequence of other like objects in a document.
Objects such as side bars, pictures, tables, and charts are called floats when they don't have a fixed placement on the text. For printed text, a chart can appear either at the top or at the bottom of the page. It can also be placed on the next page if it is too large.
A mass of timber or boards fastened together, and conveyed down a stream by the current; a raft.
To move quietly or gently on the water, as a raft; to drift along; to move or glide without effort or impulse on the surface of a fluid, or through the air.
be in motion due to some air or water current; "The leaves were blowing in the wind"; "the boat drifted on the lake"; "The sailboat was adrift on the open sea"; "the shipwrecked boat drifted away from the shore"

To rest on the surface of any fluid; to swim; to be buoyed up.
a platform on the water for supporting people, a small buoy supporting an anchor rode at a mooring, or the outside hull of a trimaran
The act of flowing; flux; flow.
In Cascading Style Sheets, floated images are removed from the document flow, and yet affect the layout of content. Margins on floated elements are not collapsed with anything. If you float an image, it will behave more or less like in HTML. The basic rule is that a floated element will go as high and as far to one side as possible, so long as it doesn't rise above where it would have been in normal flow, nor move outside its parent element (but negative margins can have the usual strange effect)
a box that creates a new flow, while the parent flow wraps around it
A polishing block used in marble working; a runner.
a block of text associated with some sort of label, but which doesn't have a fixed location
What happens to a videotape package that doesn't get finished in time for its scheduled airing (e.g., it "floats" until the producer can slip it in later that block or into the next block). Guaranteed to make producers upset.

The float property specifies whether a box should float to the left, right, or not at all (default value). It may be set for elements that generate boxes that are not absolutely positioned. See CSS Float Html Tutorial.
Float is aproperty which can have the values left, right and none. With the value 'none', the element will be displayed where it appears in the text. With a value of 'left' ('right') the element will be moved to the left (right) and the text will wrap on the right (left) side of the element. With a value of 'left' or 'right', the element is treated as block-level (i.e. the 'display' property is ignored).
a box that is shifted to the left or right on the current line
be afloat; stay on a liquid surface; not sink
set afloat; "He floated the logs down the river"; "The boy floated his toy boat on the pond"

Amount of securities circulating freely on the market (compared with those held by stable shareholders).
The term used to define the ability to move freely within a constrained area or feature (i.e. hole) and is used to allow for panel misalignment.
A fixed amount held in petty cash to provide money for small purchases. Often petty cash is 'topped-up', for example monthly, to replace the amount actually spent. This then brings the float back to its original amount. Floats can also be held by individuals.
Temporary loan to allow for expenditure before income is returned. A float may be required for a fete, for example, to allow payment of expenses before the fete is held and money raised.
The float or glide is a balance-intensive breakdance move in which the body is held parallel to the floor while balancing on one or both hands. Breakers often "walk" with floats by shifting weight from one hand to the other and thus moving in a straight line or circle.
A technique used to create soft areas of shading or highlighting. Usually done with a flat or angular brush which has been loaded with paint on only one corner, then blended on a palette to create a subtle transition of color from intense fading to none. Also called "sideloading".
Using a sideloaded brush to paint on shadows or highlights
one side of a flat brush is loaded with paint and the brush is stroked on palette until a blended color is achieved. Floating is used to shade or highlight.
