A stock or equity, is a security that represents the ownership of a fraction of the issuing corporation. A unit of a stock is called a “share” which entitles the owner to a proportion of the corporation’s assets and profits equal to the number stock they own. 

Stocks are bought and sold predominantly on stock exchanges and are the foundation of many individual investors’ portfolios. Stock trades have to conform to government regulations meant to protect investors from fraudulent practices. Many investors began their investment journey from investing in the stock market.

Many companies in the world today especially in the United States now issue stocks to both national and international investors.

Corporations issue stock to raise funds that would help them to operate their businesses. The holder of a stock, also known as a shareholder, may have a claim to part of the company’s assets and earnings.

As a shareholder of Tesla, you are considered an owner of Tesla, determined by the number of shares you own relative to the number of outstanding shares. If a company has 1,000 shares of stock outstanding and one person owns 100 shares, that person would own and have a claim to 10% of the company’s assets and earnings.

Stockholders do not own a corporation, but corporations are a special type of organization because the law treats them as legal persons. Corporations file taxes, can borrow, can own property, and can be sued. The idea that a corporation is a “person” means that the corporation owns its assets. A corporate office full of chairs and tables belongs to the corporation, and not to the shareholders.
