Stocks

What are Stocks?

A stock, also known as equity, is a type of security that represents ownership in a company. When you own stocks, you have a share in the company’s assets and earnings proportional to the number of stocks you own. Each unit of stock is called a “share.”

Stocks are primarily bought and sold on stock markets, although private transactions can also occur. They form a fundamental part of many individual investors’ portfolios. These transactions are regulated by government regulations designed to protect investors from fraudulent practices. Historically, stocks have outperformed many other types of investments over the long term. You can purchase these investments from online stock brokers. It’s important to note that investing in stocks is significantly different from investing in real estate.
