I thoroughly appreciate the quality of the articles I read here at The Motley Fool, but I'm frustrated by the difficulty I frequently experience in finding a definition for a term with which I'm unfamiliar. I know there's a "Glossary of Financial Terms" at the link to "Fool's School," but wonder why TMF "HOME" page doesn't contain a more readily available/accessible source of definitions for 'Foolish terms', some of which aren't defined in the article or in the Glossary (e.g., the term 'multiple' being one glaring example)? (I do know the term refers to a ratio, usually greater than 1, and is sometimes used to mean price/earnings ratio, or earnings multiple, but neither 'multiple' nor 'earnings multiple' are defined in the Glossary)

I'm sure this question has been raised previously, but I couldn't find an answer to it....

Many thanks in advance,
Ryszard (Polish translation of 'Richard')
