I have written an article explaining stocks before, but a stock is not always an easy concept to understand.

We know that a stock is a share. A share of a company. A public company.

But what does that mean? How are stocks formed? How did stocks originate?

Those are just a few of the questions that this infographic will answer.

This infographic is from the good people over at Mint.com.

And it will show you:

  • How a stock originates
  • How stocks rise in value
  • How shareholders earn money
  • How stocks came into being
  • Why you may want to buy stocks

Here it is, the “What is a Stock?” infographic:
