That site appears to be geared toward active traders -- an investing style we don't endorse. (We believe in buying and holding for the long-term, as explained well in this collection: )But to try and asnwer some of your questions:<<What does "ACC/DST:" mean?>>It refers to "Accumulation and Distribution". These are technical analysis terms, I think. I don't subscribe to TA, so I'm not too well versed in these. I think they refer to how much traders are adding to or subtracting to their position in a stock. << What exactly is "Vol% Change:" referring to? >>I assume it refers to the percentage change in volume. So if 1,000,000 shares of a stock were traded yesterday and 1,200,000 shares traded today, the % change would be 20%. << When it says "Options?:", Is this asking if I want a stock that has the possibility of trading options? >>Dunno. Not sure.<< What is "CPM" (market cap?)?>>In the advertising world, CPM refers to the cost per thousand. With Web ad banners, for example, the contracts are often of the sort that say that the advertiser will pay the site $20 CPM -- or $20 per 1,000 impressions. So if the page with the ad on it is clicked on 5,000 times, the advertiser owes $100.Anyone -- if I'm wrong on any of this, please correct me. :)Selena
