Investment Dictionary - Averaging down

Buying more of a security at a lower price than the original investment. This is usually done to reduce the average cost per unit of the investment. For example if the initial purchase happens at 75 cents per share and the stock drops to 25 cents per share and you purchase the same amount at that price as your original purchase then your average cost for the stock is only 50 cents per share.
