Pizza Hut is one of the largest pizza companies in the world. They are owned by YUM Brands Corporation.
Do you know how many slices (shares) they have divided their corporation into? (I don’t really expect you to know this).
Answer: 466,000,000 shares. Each share costs about $50. If you bought all of the shares it would cost over 23 billion dollars ($23,000,000,000) to buy the whole corporation.
Isn’t it nice they slice the company up into many little shares so we can afford to buy part of it?
