A stock is a part of the capital of a company, ie each element of the value of its share capital divided into equal parts, which can be bought and sold. When a company is listed in the stock market, its shares can be traded. When we buy a stock we are owning part of the company. Now, we have several advantages of working with stocks, two of which are dividends and appreciation of the value of the shares.

When we talk about dividends we refer to that those who have acquired shares in a company will enjoy benefits which are proportional to the amount of shares they own.
