Freebase

  1. Share

    A corporation divides its capital into shares, which are offered for sale to raise capital, termed as issuing shares. Thus, a share is an indivisible unit of capital, expressing the contractual relationship between the company and the shareholder. The denominated value of a share is its face value: the total capital of a company is divided into a number of shares. In financial markets, a share is a unit of account for various financial instruments including stocks, and investments in limited partnerships, and real estate investment trusts. The common feature of all these is equity participation. The income received from shares is known as a dividend. A shareholder, also known as a stockholder, is a person who owns shares of a certain company or organization. The process of purchasing and selling shares often involves going through a stockbroker as a middle man.
