Simply put, a stock represents part ownership of a company.
Anyone who holds a stock of say, Reliance, can claim that he
has a stake in the company and has a proportional share in
the company’s assets and profits. The reason why we use the
word proportional is because the level of ownership depends
not only on the number of shares a person holds but also on
the total number of shares that have been issued. For
example, if you were to hold 5 shares of Reliance, and had
Reliance issued 100 shares, you would have a 5% ownership of
Reliance. Most companies also give voting rights to all its
shareholders which gives its shareholders a proportional
vote in certain major company decisions.

n today's financial markets, the distinction between stocks
and shares has been somewhat blurred. Generally, these words
are used interchangeably to refer to the pieces of paper
that denote ownership in a particular company, called stock
certificates. However, the difference between the two words
comes from the context in which they are used.

For example, "stock" is a general term used to describe the
ownership certificates of any company, in general, and
"shares" refers to a the ownership certificates of a
particular company. So, if investors say they own stocks,
they are generally referring to their overall ownership in
one or more companies. Technically, if someone says that
they own shares - the question then becomes - shares in what
company?

Bottom line, stocks and shares are the same thing. The minor
distinction between stocks and shares is usually overlooked,
and it has more to do with syntax than financial or legal
accuracy.

There is no Litrary or legal difference between stock and
share .These two financialo terms can be used

Gnerally when we talk about the owernship holding of a
single company we say Shares and when we hold in many
companies we use the term stocks.

In general sense these two are used synonymus but slight
distinction however is there. Generally Investors hold
shares of many companies. So the holding is called stock(
means bundle of shares of many companies). If am owning 500
shares of ten companies of 50 each ,tnen I am holding a
stock. Hence stock consists of shares of many companies.

Best Example for Stock is : a Unit in a mutual fund. It has
a portion of shares of many companies.
