English grammar question

Post by myoussef » Tue Aug 27, 2019 8:32 am

Is it correct to say:

The company's move into property speculation.

I understand that company's move means the movement of the company, but where is the verb in this sentence.

The company's move into property speculation. :nok:
Indeed, this is not a proper sentence because there is no verb. A valid sentence would be, for example:
The company's move into property speculation is expected to improve profits. :ok:
