ações em proporções acima do normal


Explanation:
Um portfólio de ações geralmente segue certas proporções: x% investido em indústrias, y% em empresas financeiras, etc. Quando uma categoria foge acima desta proporção, se diz que é "overweight".

"OVERWEIGHT: 3. Describing a portfolio where one security or industry has too much representation. For example, an overweight portfolio may be overexposed to the financial industry, which means if the financial industry suffers a downturn the portfolio will decline in value more than other similar portfolios."
