DOMINANT FIRM: A term employed in industrial organization to describe a firm that is a price maker and faces little competition from smaller price taking firms, called fringe firms. A firm can become a dominant firm because it has lower costs than fringe firms, because they have a superior differentiated product in the market or because a group of firms collectively act as a single firm. A dominant firm usually has a large market share.

PAR VALUE: The stated, or face, value of a legal claim or financial asset. For debt securities, such as corporate bonds or U. S. Treasury securities, this is amount to be repaid at the time of maturity. For equity securities, that is, corporate stocks, this is the initial value set up at the time it is issued. Par value, also called face value, is not necessarily, and often is not, equal to the current market price of the asset. A $10,000 U.S. Treasury note, for example, has a par value of $10,000, but might have a current market price of $9,950. The difference between par value and current price contributes to the yield or return on such assets. An asset is selling at a discount if the current price is less than the par value and is selling at a premium if the current price is more than the par value.
