Why is dilution, diluted shares, and whatever relates to diluted shares omitted from the glossary of terms? It should be defined and explained.
Thanks, Maxwell

Hi Max!

Glad to see you joining in with your opinion and doing a little posting on TMFool, my emphasis on; a little.

I see you've been a member of TMF since 1999, almost as long as I have. I looked at your profile:

FYI; I took your question and pasted 'diluted shares' on the master website of investor terms (IMO) and I found the following info. It is quite extensive and I won't try to define it for you since I don't have any idea what you 'specifically' want to know.

Take a look at the following link and enjoy yourself with the many articles concerning diluted shares.

Cheers... ;o)


PS: [tip] Maybe you can add this website to your 'favorites' and when you have other questions concerning Investor terms you can check there first.
