    stock or stocks

    Someone owns a company's stock or stocks?

    He/she owns many shares but only one company. e.g. 2,000 shares of Google stock or stocks?

    Thanks

    Re: stock or stocks

    Stock = part of the ownership of a company which people buy as an investment - you have stock in a company.

    Stocks = the multiples of the parts - you have more than one part or you own parts in more than one company.

    Hi Ang,

    Stocks = the multiples of the parts - you have more than one part or you own parts in more than one company.

    Can you explain more? What do you mean by 'have more than one part' , 'you own parts in more than one company'?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Re: stock or stocks

    Stock is the capital of a company raised through the issue and subscription of shares. There may be one or many stock holders in a company. If there is more than one stockholder, then each has one part of the stock.

    Equally, a person may own stock in a number of different companies, so he has several stocks.
