This is the value on paper of any company. After the purchase, it is assigned to the owner, giving him the right to receive part of the profits of the firm and even participate in the management of an all public company. In fact, the company issues shares and buyers, shareholders, pay money for them, thus making a financial contribution to the development of the company. For this they to one degree or another, become co-owners. The better the things that are going on in the corporation, the more expensive the stock. Their price varies each day and stock traders (see) make money on it: they buy shares at a lower price, and then, after an optimistic news report about the company, they sell the same shares for a higher price. There are preferred and ordinary shares. Holders of preferred shares of income (and fixed) paid regularly and in the first place, although such shareholders often can not participate in the decision of some important issues and reshuffling. But ordinary shares allow their owners to participate in the voting and shareholder meetings. However, the income from such shares depends on how well things are in the financial affairs of the company. If the market price of shares increases, so does the profit on ordinary shares, but if it goes down there will be a reduced income.
