interest-sensitive stock

Definition

A general term for any stock whose price tends to change with interest rates. Generally, if interest rates rise, shares of a stock that is interest-sensitive drops in price. Financial stocks, such as bank stocks, are good examples of these. Other interest-sensitive stocks can include companies with lots of debt because of their high cost of borrowing.
