A Share is a unit of a company’s value. So when you buy a Share, you become a part-owner of that company.
For example, let’s say you buy Shares in a company worth £10 million with a total of 10 million Shares in issue. Each of your Shares would be worth £1, or 100p (as it’s usually listed in the stock market). When the overall value of the company goes up or down, so will the value of your Shares.
