What communication exists between the price which we pay for shares of company at a stock exchange, and annual earnings of this company? Certainly, there is a straight line. Than more company earns today and that it is even more important, the more it can earn in the future, the above individual share cost in the business expressed by market price of shares of this company. The second rule of an estimation of the investment from here follows: the cash spent for share acquisition should pay off company incomes in strictly certain proportion characteristic for economy for this or that sector.
Let’s understand what this speech is about. Almost any mathematical calculations which have been torn off from the real market, inspire personally to me not enough trust, as I all the same is an expert, instead of the theorist of financial business.

Acquiring the company entirely, the buyer receives the absolute control and together with that also the right to dispose of incomes, putting them again in business or putting in a pocket. At share purchase of the public companies the order right their incomes exists more likely theoretically (by voting at joint-stock meetings) than practically. Nevertheless, the principle is important: “At investment in business the business approach is necessary”.
Any business exists for the only purpose and it is to get profit on the put up money by means of existing assets. After the profit is received, the company can already decide what to do with that: to reinvest, pay dividends, to use for purchasing of other companies or own shares.
