Stock is a type of negotiable security. It is a share certificate by a joint stock company to the investor when raising capital. The purchase of shares is part of the purchase of a business, in which the owner (i.e- the shareholder) owns a part of the company and can grow and develop with the business as a whole.
Such ownership is a comprehensive right, and the owner can participate in the shareholder’s congress voting, participate in the company’s major decision-makings, collect stock interests or sharing the dividend spread, but the owner also shares the risks and mistakes of the company. One of the important reasons for investors to buy stocks is to obtain re-current income. Dividend is the main source of re-current income for stock investors.
