What are stocks and why should you invest in them?

Stocks are ownership shares in a company. When you buy a company’s shares, you’re taking a stake in its future value. If the company does well, you may be able to sell your shares for more than you paid. You may also be entitled to a share in the company’s profits, through any dividends it pays out.

Buying shares is a great way to diversify your investments and get a boost from the financial markets.
