What is a Stock?

A "stock" is a transferable share of ownership of a corporation. The individuals holding stock in a corporation actually own a portion of that corporation. They share in the ups and downs of the company by the stock's price variation. All corporations have stock. The stock of Privately Held Corporations is held by only one or a few individuals and in small quantities that make transfer of shares to outsiders difficult and occur rarely. Publicly Held Corporations (those traded in the stock markets) have sufficient outstanding shares to make their transfer easy and their value based upon supply and demand.
