Stocks are one of the primary means of raising additional capital for companies.
The most active stocks are traded daily throughout an ever expanding global market. There are thousands of different stock variants, but the most common are ordinary stocks.
Stockholders will usually receive dividends twice annually. These dividends are based upon the company’s profitability. Dividends can be increased, decreased or suspended but, over the long-term they tend to rise in value, which provides stockholders with a measure of offset against inflation.
Stock prices can, and do, fluctuate in the short-term. This is caused by change in short term market sentiment for the company, the business sector in which it operates or the general economic outlook. Selling stocks may produce a capital gain for investors, as the amount realized at sale may be greater than what was initially paid to acquire the stock. A capital gain obtained on the sale of stock is often subject to a capital gains tax. Capital losses may be used as a set-off against gains for tax purposes in many jurisdictions. Investing in individual stocks does carry risk, and investing in the wrong company could mean losing some or all of the original investment.
