    Outperform, Back to Back Life Sentences and Adiabatic Cooling

    Today's Finance Jargon
    Outperform is when a stock is expected to do slightly better than the market return.
    Also known as "market outperform", "moderate buy", or "accumulate".

    A method in which paramagnetic salts are pre-cooled, and then demagnetized, thereby producing further cooling.
