stock or stocks?
Should I change the word "stock" to "stocks" in the following sentence, or change the word "are" to "is"?
--The Company’s stock are all registered, and are issued upon being signed or sealed by three or more directors and legally registered.--
According to the Cambridge dictionary, the word stock is an uncountable noun when refer to a company's stock issued to the public.
Thank you very much!
Re: stock or stocks?
The Company’s stock are all registered
With "all" in the sentence, I suspect it should be "stocks" [shares].
4 (stocks) a portion of a company’s stock held by an individual or group as an investment. (OED)
