What are stocks?


A share is literally a share within a company. It is proof of co-ownership. With a share, the owner has control within a company. All shareholders within a company can be viewed financially as owners of a company.

From a legal point of view, it is different, in that they do not own a company. With a share in a company, the shareholder shares the company's profits with the other shareholders, but also shares the risks. When a company makes a loss, it is possible that the shareholder does not receive a reward for his share.
