Types of Shares - 0 views

    There are two types of shares, ordinary shares and preference shares. * Ordinary shares are the most familiar type of shares and have flexible dividends (dividends that are adjusted in relation to a company's profit). These shares also allow full voting rights. * Preferred shares carry fixed dividends, which must be paid before any dividends are paid to ordinary shareholders. However, preferred shares do not allow voting rights. Remember that when dealing with shares in the stock market as we know it, it will practically always be involving ordinary shares and this should not be a very big issue!

The Corliss Group on Adidas profit - 1 views

    Adidas profit warning hits shares, puts 2015 goals under scrutiny Shares in German sports apparel maker Adidas dropped sharply on Friday and its 2015 targets came under scrutiny on Friday after the group issued an unexpected profit warning. Adidas, which has mostly exceeded sales and profit goals in the last couple of years, said late Thursday that weakening currencies in Russia, Japan, Brazil, Argentina and Turkey, a distribution problem in Russia and poor trading at its golf business meant targets were no longer attainable. Its shares, which hit an all-time high of 88.50 euros at the start of August, dropped almost 6 percent in early trading to a three-month low and were down 4.4 percent at 78.95 euros at 0825 GMT.
