What are Stocks?

A stock is a piece of a company that you can buy and sell on a stock exchange. Companies initially issue stocks through an Initial Public Offering (IPO) as a way to raise funds for their business.

Investors who buy stocks, in turn, become shareholders and acquire a stake in the companies they bought stock from.

As Investopedia​ explains:
"If a company has 1,000 shares of stock outstanding and one person owns 100 shares, that person would own and have claim to 10% of the company's assets and earnings".
