Share (or stock) — the smallest unit of a company’s capital that gives its owner the right to receive dividends (a share in the company’s profits). Shareholders have the right to vote on company management and receive dividends when the company’s profits are distributed among shareholders. The owners of preferred shares do not participate in company management yet receive dividends, regardless of the company’s financial situation. Companies’ shares (stocks) are bought and sold on the stock market. Shares are often included in most investment portfolios as assets that ensure steady income. Company shares may change in price due to changes in the issuer's financial performance and/or stock market sentiment, which allows for speculation on the share's value. Shares have higher profitability than other assets. On the Binomo trading platform, the shares are not acquired physically: the transactions are based on price increases or decreases.
