In the investment world, a share of stock (also referred to as equity share) represents a share of ownership in a corporation (company).
In the plural, stocks is often used as a synonym for shares especially in the United States, but it is less commonly used that way outside of North America.
In the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Australia, stock can also refer to completely different financial instruments such as government bonds or, less commonly, to all kinds of marketable securities.
