    stock or stocks?

    Hi Teachers,

    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!

    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)
