What is Difference Between Stock & Shares?

Many beginners use stock and share interchangeably and stick to it for a lifetime without really understanding what's the difference between shares and stock.

To make it simple stocks and shares are the same things when talking in the day to day talks. The difference between stocks and shares is usually overlooked so you won't get laughed at by your friends or colleagues if you use it without understanding the difference. However, it is good to know that these terms are different if looking from a legal point of view.

A stock is a common word used to describe the ownership certificates of a company, and shares are used to describe the ownership certificates of a particular company. So, if an investor says he owns stock, they are generally referring to their ownership in single or many companies. Specifically, if someone says they own shares, the question then arises 'Shares in which company'?

The technical points of difference between share and stock are as follows:

ShareStock
A share is that smallest part of the share capital of the company which highlights the ownership of the shareholder.A stock is a collective word used for a bundle of shares of a member in a company.
The share is always originally issued.The original issue of Stock is not possible.

As an English analogy:

Some people spell gray and other people spell grey. Both are correct. The difference used to be dialectal, but with the growth of cross-dialectal interaction, but get used by the same people from time to time.

PPC and CPC are often used interchangeable within the advertising community, however generally speaking PPC is used to describe the type of advertising program you are running. CPC, which stands for cost-per-click, is usually used in communicating what you are actually paying per click within your advertising program
