Shareholders, also known as stockholders or equity holders, are individuals, entities, or institutions that own shares or stocks in a company.
When you own shares in a company, you become a partial owner or shareholder of that company. Being a shareholder comes with certain rights and responsibilities. Along with sharing in the overall financial success, a shareholder is also allowed to vote on certain issues that affect the company or fund in which they hold shares.
Investors vary in their investment preferences, such as long-term, mid-term, and short-term strategies, as well as their inclination towards low or high-priced stocks. While there is considerable interest in penny stocks, particularly among retail investors, it’s important to note that their appeal does not necessarily guarantee substantial wealth creation.
