Appreciation

Appreciation, or capital appreciation, is an increase in the price or value of an asset. Appreciation occurs when the market value of an asset is higher than the price an investor paid for that asset. It can refer to an increase in value of real estate, stocks, bonds, or any other class of investable asset. Capital appreciation is the portion of an investment excluding the original cost basis of the investment.
