Investing in stock is investing in the piece of a company. A company issues stock, and a share is a piece of that stock. So if you buy 100 shares of a company, you own a piece of that company, and how the company performs will determine how much money you make with your investment based on how many shares you own. When you come down to it, stock investment is nothing more or less than investing in a company and its future potential.
