Watch to learn the fundamentals of stocks—what they are, where they’re bought and sold, and how to get started.

Key takeaways:

  • Stocks are an investment that give you ownership over a small piece of a company. When you purchase them, you’re investing in the success of that company
  • The longer you hold a stock, the more likely you are to see a return on your investment
  • Stocks can be both volatile and powerful drivers of wealth
