What is a Stock & How YOU Make Money in the Market

What is a Stock & How YOU Make Money in the Market…

Are you struggling to understand what is the stock? how the stock market works? or how you can make money from the stock market?

In this video I will share with you the basics behind how a company issues stock, how money is made in the stock market, and how you can profit from trading stocks.

Stock is simply a piece of the company and you get a share. Has to shares are exchanged or traded over time the value of them fluctuates over also changes. If you are able to buy stocks of companies at a lower price in one year and then hold it over time for multiple years and sell it at a higher price than you make a profit and this is where it comes into the investment side.

Investing in stocks is similar to investing in a home or in real estate. If you can buy a house at a cheaper price in one year with time that house value should go up and appreciate and then later on you can sell it for more money capitalizing and profiting from the difference.

In this video may share with you some calculations about how a company can sell stock to investors and therefore use that capital to grow the company.

All the examples that we will cover will help you see the bigger picture of how the market works based on the last price principal and how you can use it to your advantage to make more money.

John Beaman says:

doesn’t seem like the best way to make money. I make more than $200 a day without having $10,000 tied up somewhere

bzvivi 7 says:

does the value of my shares go up once the stalk marker close?

Nenad G says:

How often can a stock market give you 1/1 (1to1) ratio?
Like puting 100$ on black on rulette and winning 200$-100$=100 profit????

posiclestick says:

so I need to buy a stock and when I want the money I made i sell my stock?

KingBowserVlog says:

You said that if it’s a public company it’s probably easy to get in or out, but I still don’t understand why someone would buy a share that is exponentially more expensive that what it was. Wouldn’t everyone just wait until stuff crashes and burns to buy the stocks at a cheaper price? Maybe I’m missing something here.

thanks for the vid Sasha!

Jovan Rodriguez says:


Nicole Elizabeth says:

So the more expensive the cost of your shares, the better the potential profits? I’m a beginner and I just bought a few different stocks- all under $15.

Saqib Jamal says:

My question may sound stupid but if a person owns a share of Facebook hes getting rich day by day. Right?

edrian tito says:

Hi sasha,
I want to ask whether or not the value of the company(market cap) can directly affect the stock price or shares that i bought? Brief background, Im torned between dividend investing and growth investing; some expert dont believe in dividend paying stocks if i will be investing in a company that dont pay dividend what is the point the only thing that make sense is when the money they make will be reinvested back to the company hence increasing their market cap,thats why i ask the question above so that you may can enlighten me.

Alexis Hernan says:

Is looking at past stock prices helpful or is it still unpredictable

my dude247 says:

Wait so as the value of company grows u get more money or do u have to sell it to get money

Shivani Gupta says:

stock = share?

Raquel says:

Ah thank you. You explained this perfectly. This is always confusing to me. Could you make one about bitcoin?!

Andrés V says:

Wait, so everyone buys a share. The company doesn’t have money. Now it does, USD1000. Won’t the shares go down while you spend money on advertisement, employees, sales trips, etc…and then maybe go up?

Tru Silver says:

How are they Raising that Money Though? Where does the Extra Money Come From, Just Profits from Company Sales?

Darth Vato says:

So I have 9 shares of tesla. I bought them right after elon musk took a puff of weed at 260 a share, its standing around 290 now. Should I sell my shares and use that money somewhere else before his company goes downhill with this investigation thing going on?

I’m using the stock simulator on investopedia.
