What Happens When You Buy A Stock

By Michael Swanson

So you want another way to invest in stocks, but you're not really sure if it's a good idea or not? One thing that is good about investing in stocks is that in past years they seem to be the best way to earn more money when investing.

When you invest in stocks you are supplying money to a company and in turn you will have partial ownership in this company. Common stocks are what most people will deal with when they become involved in the stock market. These are the stocks that no restrictions are placed on and any one is able to buy.

You will become what is known as a shareholder in a company. Meaning you own part of the company for the money you have placed into this stock. When the business succeeds and earns more money the price for the stock will increase, and you will earn money.

When the board of directors votes as a shareholder you get a say in the voting too. This means that new developments will need to be approved by the board. Becoming a part owner in a company is a big decision so you still need to choose your stock wisely.

Though you will not always see the pluses when it comes to investing in stocks. If the company hits a rough time or goes out of business you will lose money. At times you may even lose everything you've invested in those stocks.

Different types of stock are available. As an example we will talk about a family owned company. If they may want to bring in extra funds they will create another class of stock. These stocks may only entitle the holder to one vote, while the class of stock the family holds will be worth 10 votes. However, they have found a way in which more money can come into the business. - 23208
