Stocks and Shares
Stock Market Basics For Beginners
What are Stocks and Shares
pretty much terms for the same thing. Stocks are publicly
companies that you can buy a part ownership or Shares of.
business needs to raise cash, rather than borrowing it, they may
simply sell ownership in shares.
They may choose to sell either a percentage or the whole of the company
giving each of the new "Shareholders" a part ownership.
is the buying and selling of those securities.
Holders of Common
Stock or Ordinary
Shares, have a part ownership in the company and as such
are entitled to a percentage of any profits it may make.
usually have voting rights allocated to them so
the more you own the larger the slice of the profits you will get and
the bigger say you will have in the way the company is run.
In reality, small shareholders
will have no real influence as the
institutions that hold large blocks of shares will have a big enough
holding to control any voting issues.
can also be divided further, into different classes
such as Class A and Class B one of which will usually be traded as a
fraction of the other and may not have the voting rights
Stock does not mean it is the stock I like to
hold in my stock market portfolio of stocks and shares.
and Shares are slightly different to
common stocks and usually give the holders
enhanced dividend rights and have a higher
priority status in the event of the company going bankrupt. Common
Stock holders are bottom of the heap when it comes to bankruptcy and
are very unlikely to get anything back at all.
Stocks can have a number of different characteristics and
benefits so each one needs to be researched individually.
These shares are traded in stock Exchanges such as the London
(LSE) or New
York Stock Exchange (NYSE)
etc in exactly the same way as
common stocks although they will have different values reflecting the
variation in associated benefits..
What are Penny
Stocks and Shares? This is actually a colloquial term for
traders will have their own definitions.
Generally speaking, in the UK stock market, the Penny Stocks label
is given to a
Company whose share price
is trading at 100p or less. In the US it
usually considered to be stocks trading at less than $5 or so.
Trading Penny shares
can be a higher risk strategy because
the spreads can be much wider than with other shares. They may be
smaller companies or newer start ups and are at a far higher risk of
failing so your investment may be less
It is also possible that there might not be much demand
and the lack of stock market liquidity may make it difficult for
you to sell your holding at the price you want.
The advantages of trading Penny
Socks and Shares are that their share prices can be
very volatile and short term traders love a bit of volatility because
can get in and back out again in a short space of time. Also, because
the companies are usually small unknown entities, any one of them could
turn out to be the worlds next Google
