What Is A Share

In finance a share is a unit of Acc. for various financial instruments including stocks, mutual funds, limited partnerships, & REIT's. In British English, the usage of word share alone to refer solely to stocks is so common that it almost replaces the word stock itself.

In simple Words, a share or stock is a document issued by a company, which entitles its holder to be one of owners of company. A share is issued by a Comp. or can be purchased from the stock market.

By owning a share you can earn a portion & selling shares you get capital gain. So, your return is the dividend plus the capital gain. However, you also run a risk of making a capital loss if you have sold the share at a price below your buying price.

A company's stock price reflects what investors think about the stock, not necessarily what the Comp. is "worth." For example, companies that are growing quickly often trade at a higher price than the Comp. might currently be "worth." Stock prices are also affected by all forms of Comp. & market news. Publicly traded companies are required to report quarterly on their financial status & earnings. Market forces & general investor opinions can also affect share price.
