dumping business definition
- The selling of large amounts of a stock, or stocks in general, at whatever market prices are in effect. For example, investors might dump stocks on hearing of an outbreak of fighting in some part of the world.
- The selling of a product in one market at an unusually low price while selling the same product at a significantly higher price in another market. For example, a firm may sell a product in its home market at a price covering all costs, and then sell the product in a foreign market at a significantly lower price, covering only variable costs.
