About the Book

More than 5,000 terms related to stocks, bonds, mutual funds, banking, tax laws, and transactions in the various financial markets are presented alphabetically with descriptions. Readers will also find a helpful list of financial abbreviations and acronyms, as well as illustrative diagrams and charts. Here’s a valuable short-entry dictionary for business students, as well as for office reference and the home bookshelves of private investors. Sample Entry:CLASSIFIED STOCK separation of equity into more than one class of common, usually designated Class A and Class B. The distinguishing features, set forth in the corporation charter and bylaws, usually give an advantage of the Class A shares in terms of voting power, though dividend and liquidation privileges can also be involved. Classified stock is less prevalent today than in the 1920s, when it was used as a means of preserving minority control.About the Series:Pocket-size books each list and define several thousand specialized terms alphabetically. Titles in this series were compiled and written by recognized authorities in their fields.
