Shares are units of ownership of a stock. Every share has a price that is set by the market.
A share is an indivisible unit of capital. If you hold shares of a company, you are a shareholder. However, as a shareholder, you do not own the company.
You can buy shares via a broker who acts as a middle-man between you and the market.
