English term or phrase: underweight
a market can be underweight for investors. It can also be overweight. I think the investor himself can be overweight too (nothing to do with obesity)

Explanation:
this answer is given by Van Amerongen, a source I trust for about 90%, but a little more context might help - would perhaps "undervalued" or "underestimated" be a correct synonym? Then "ondergewaardeerd" or "onderschat" might be the answer you need. "overweight investor" perhaps a "topzware investeerder"? My guess, I must admit. If you have access to the Financial Times archives, you might find some help there. Good luck!

geringe draagkracht


Explanation:
Ik meen dat het hier gaat om de kontekst bij het introduceren van een onderneming op de beurs.
Wanneer de markt "loom" is, is er onvoldoende draagkracht om voldoende kapitaal te heffen tijdens de introductie.
Maar zoals u zegt, is het andere uiterste ook niet goed, wanneer er teveel sollicitaties tegelijk zijn kan de introductie eveneens een flop worden.
