single-stock futures

single-stock futures
( SSF)
Also known as Universal Stock Futures. Like other futures contracts, a single-stock futures contract is an agreement for the purchase/sale of an underlying asset at some time in the future, with the terms (except for price) of the contract pre-set and standardized by an exchange or board of trade. With SSF, the underlying asset is a lot of 100 shares of stock. Owning single stock futures, however, does not entitle the owner to any of the rights associated with owning the underlying stock until and unless delivery is made/taken.
