-I will refer to the website: www.howtobooks.co.uk

-This website shows a variety of books (up to 250 practical books). They are uploaded in order to help and give information on various topics.

The article that I will refer to in particular in the following summary deals with the shares and other related terms.

- The website content is distributed in different sections such as:
Home, Book Search, Browse subjects, about us, contact us, links and Guides.

-The information I have chosen refers to the shares as I will explain in the following paragraphs:

It is a stake in the company's assets. They imply ownership and voting rights for the owners. These rights are proportional to the size of the investor's holding in the company's activities and the participation in its annual General Meeting.
We can define assets as: everything with value owned by a bussines that can be used to produce goods, pay liabilities, and so on.
The majority of the shares have a nominal value (this value is usually 25p.)
They represent the value of the assets that the company owns.
Some shares are known by the suffix 'A'. They are the ones which offer greater benefits, but the owner of this kind of shares does not have the right to vote in the company strategy. The idea of these shares is to allow the company to continue to delegate the control of the company to the founding family (the control of the assets with voting right).
Another term that should be mentioned refers to the dividends of the company. The dividends are the proportion of benefits paid to the owners, which are called the shareholders. As a matter of fact, a company will only pay a portion of their profit as dividends. The rest will be retained in order to finance the internal growth of the company.
When the earnings of a company are divided by the number of shares in existence, we talk about the "earnings per shareā€¯, also known as EPS.
Another important measure that should be taken into account when we refer to a company's performance is its yield. The yield is usually expressed as a net percentage(the fact that it is net means that the percentage is calculated after the income tax) of the current share price. For example: The long-term average yield in the UK is around 3.6 per cent net.
