Stock Trading

What is a stock? A stock is a form of security that represents ownership in a corporation and acts as a claim on a portion of the corporation’s assets and earnings. The two main types of stock issued are common stock and preferred stock. Generally speaking, common stocks entitle the owner to vote at shareholders’ meetings and receive dividends. Voting rights are often not extended to the owners of preferred stock. Owners of preferred stock, however, have a higher claim on assets and earnings than shares of common stock.

Options Trading

 What is an option? An option is a financial derivative the represents a contract sold by one party to another. The contract offers the buyer the right to buy (call) or sell (put) a security or other financial asset at a prearranged price (strike or exercise) during a certain period of time or on a certain date. It is important to note that the contract buyer is not obligated to exercise the contract. 

 Call options give the option to buy at a certain price, so the buyer would want the stock to increase in value.

 Put options give the option to sell at a certain price, so the buyer would want the stock to go down.
