A Stock is an instrument that signifies an ownership position (called equity) in a corporation, and represents a claim on its proportional share in the corporation's assets and profits.  Stock also known as share.

Ownership in the company is determined by the number of shares a person owns divided by the total number of shares outstanding.

For example, if a company has 1000 shares of stock outstanding and a person owns 50 of them, then he/she owns 5% of the company.
