Top definition
Buying and selling pieces(stocks) of a company's overall worth. The stock holder owns a piece of the company and is paid a portion of the company's profits every year or quarter year, based on the number of stock they have. Because stock prices change often, you can also make money by buying a stock at a cheaper price than you sell it for.
