Equities - Introduction

Equity means ownership. With ownership comes the risk that you could lose every nickel you have invested - and more. However, you could also be surprised on the upside, if the company you have bought into grows more quickly than expected.

There are several different types of equity positions:
  • Common stock
  • Preferred stock
  • Rights offerings
  • Warrants
  • American Depository Receipts (ADRs)
  • Direct Participation Programs (DPPs, or partnerships)
If you are new to the stock market and want the basics, the tutorial Stock Basics is for you.
