Good Delivery


If a security that is traded on an exchange meets the requirements to permit it to be transferred from seller to buyer, then the transfer is said to be of good delivery." For example, if a share of stock is restricted so that it cannot be transferred, then "good delivery" of this share cannot be realized."
