Investing in stocks is becoming increasingly popular. By purchasing shares of the company, you become a shareholder of the company. The share therefore represents a share in the ownership of the company and at the same time the right to share in the profit. By investing in stocks, you can profit from dividends or even gain the right to vote on certain decisions. However, this also depends on the size of the company's share.
The share price is the result of supply and demand. There are several factors that affect the price. You buy shares at a quoted price. Traditionally, if the value of the stock increases, you will make a profit. Conversely, if the value of a stock declines, there is a loss.
