What is the stock market?

Stock is a type of investment that represents the share of a company. The stock market is where you can buy and sell stocks. When you purchase shares of a company, you own a part of it meaning that you can claim on their assets and earnings. When the company earns money, you earn. When the company loses money, you also lose money.

The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) is an organization to maintain and provide a fair, orderly, and transparent market. As of June 2020, there are 330 companies listed in PSE’s directory where you can buy stocks from.
