What it is:
"Market perform" is an expression indicating that a security experiences returns similar to the overall market.
How it works/Example:
A security that investors and analysts describe as "market perform" closely follows the performance of a market indicator, like the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). For example, if a stock appreciates at 10% per year and the Dow also grows at 10% per year, that stock is described as market perform.
