Shares are the financial instruments by which a company raise funds
from general public by sharing the ownership of the company. The
company issues IPO (Initial Public Offer) to invite the general public
to buy shares of it. The person who purchased the shares is called shareholder of the company. Each shareholder is the owner of the company in respect of investment
made by him. Company use this collected money for production process or
to achieve the targets,goals, mission made by the company.

Basically there are two types of shares which a company can launch in primary market, 1: Preference shares 2: Equity shares. Preference shareholders have preference over the equity shareholders while distribution of profit, and equity shareholders have equal distribution of profit.

Shares:  Imagine a pie  cut into equal servings as a company...if you buy 3 shares you get 3 pieces of the pie/company.
Stock market:  The place that controls who owns what pies/companies and who is buying or selling their pieces or
shares.


That is it in layman's terms.  Do you now understand?  If I have helped you, pls rate my answer and have a fabulous day!

Companies that are listed in the stock market sell shares. Shares is what you can buy so that you have ownership of the company. Like Apple computers for example has gone up by about $60 per share in the last 2 months. If you want to buy shares of a company then you pay whatever the price is per share and if the shares go up. You sell it back and get to keep the profit from the rise in the company. If you have a 401k or ira or something then you are investing in shares of companies that your employer chooses for you. Does that help?

A share is a unit of ownership interest in a corporation or financial asset. While owning shares in a business does not mean that the shareholder has direct control over the business's day-to-day operations, being a shareholder does entitle the possessor to an equal distribution in any profits, if any are declared in the form of dividends. Shares can be divided into Common shares and Ordinary shares. Also visit following Blurtit questions:
