Dilution

A watering down in the ownership stake represented by a single share of stock, usually as a result of the sale of additional shares. Dilution is bad news for investors; the company hasn't gained any new assets or changed its market position, yet suddenly the pie has been divided into more -- and thus smaller -- pieces.
