Hi - you might want to consider adding the definition of 'Float' as applied to equities as it pops up often in considering the risk of a company's stock.

Here's what Yahooo has to say:
"Number of shares of a corporation that are outstanding and available for trading by the public, excluding insiders or restricted stock on a when-issued basis. A stock's volatility is inversely correlated to its float."
