Share

A unit of ownership in an equity

Share

A share is a stake in a company, and the owner of a share is a part owner of that company. There are various types of share, including ordinary shares, preference shares and convertible preference shares, but when people talk about shares they usually refer to ordinary shares. Different types of share confer different rights. Ordinary shareholders have voting rights but come behind preference shares in the pecking order for receiving a dividend, and for being repaid if the company is wound up. Holders of preference shares receive preferential rights to dividends and repayment but seldom get the right to vote at the annual general meeting. The market value may bear little relation to the issue price as it rises and falls according to supply and demand. ...

A share gives the holder ownership of part of a company. Thousands of people in Ireland are shareholders in companies quoted on the stock market. Private companies - those not quoted on the stock market - tend to have fewer shareholders. In many small companies, members of one family would be the only shareholders. :: AIB (9th Edition)
