A share stands as a unit of possession in a corporation or financial asset.
However, owning shares in a business doesn’t render a shareholder to have direct control over the business’s day-to-day operations nor makes him entitled to an equal distribution in the profits if they are in the form of dividends.
Each share signifies a proportionate stake in the equity of a company. You can select from buying large or small shares to match the amount of money you want to invest. A company's share price can accelerate or decrease as a result of its own performance or market conditions.
