    share and stock

    Dear teachers,


    According to my dictionary:

    share: one of the equal parts into which the ownership of a company is divided and which can be bought by members of the public
    stock: part of the ownership of a company which people buy as an investment

    I think they mean the same thing. Could you please explain the difference between 'share prices' and 'stock prices'?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    You are correct, the terms "share" and "stock" mean the same thing in this context. "share prices" and "stock prices" are the same as well.
