Appreciation

The amount something increases in value over time. The opposite is depreciation, or the amount something decreases in value over time. Obviously, you can appreciate anything (I appreciate you for visiting my site), but in finance it mostly refers to “capital” like stocks, bonds, homes or other property like fine art. (See also: Depreciation)
