    Exclamation At the beginning of this period the share price was at EUR 13 per share

    Hello All,
    what does the bold text mean?!
    "At the beginning of this period the share price was at EUR 13 per share. There were several fluctuations until late 2006 when there was a sudden increase from EUR 21 to EUR 31. This higher price did not last long, however, and it fell before rising strongly again in 2008. ..."

    Which part of the bold part do you not understand? Do you know what a "share price" is? Do you know what "per share" means? Can you understand "the beginning of this period"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No...I don't understand none of them you mentioned.
    Is " the price of share was 13 euros " equal to the "the share price was at EUR 13 per share "?!

    Each single share cost €13.

    Can we paraphrase the sentence as below?!

    "At the beginning of this period the price of share was 13 euros per share."
    or
    "At the beginning of this period the price of share was 13 euros "

    At the beginning of this period, the price of each share was €13.
    At the beginning of this period, the share price was €13.

    Note the comma after "period". You didn't need to use "per share" in your first example because you had already said "price of share". Note, too, that it's the "the price of each share". Be aware that the normal, natural phrase is "share price".
