ok this is how stocks work

1 you put out 1500 shares of stock and sell 800$ for a billionth of a share so you still dont own a whole stock billionth millions hundreth all the same the thing is all your buying is a big sheet of paper thats say i like this company and you now own 1 billions of a peice of a sheet of paper that say i realy like your company

2 when you buy stock all you get is stock you dont own any thing on the grounds of the company or any thing at all nothing

3 buying stock helps the company grow faster they now have 800 big ones for a sheet of paper with blah blahs name and how much said sheet is worth and maybe a fancy seal and your signatur or some big tops blurry hand out

4 wonce you have bought stock you now have to sell to people who want stock in a company at what ever price your charging

so i ask you how do you feel about stocks now and whats are we to do about the sitcheation

Erm........
how very .. Educational..

If your not day trading, you can either request a paper copy of tne transaction, our eraser you can buy stock of the exchange and directly from the corp. In short, you make no logical sense, sorry. Owning stock is a form of ownership.

A growing company can give returns in value but when the company is mature
it can give dividends better than the savings banks give now of around 1%.
Sure 1% or lower for most stocks, or zero, but some pay larger dividends.
So you do own something and not just a paper unless the workers are so
bad the stock goes down. Lets say you own some sort of a contract that
should sound like my first statement and not like the one before this one.

I dont want to be rude, but, what are you talking about !!

Of course you own something, you own a share of that Company. Its a public owned Company, owned by the shareholders!
