Equity Stock or Shares are units of a company that can be invested in by individuals or organisations with a Trading & Demat Account. Any company listed on stock exchanges such as BSE, NSE, etc. can be invested in by prospective investors. Investing your funds into a particular stock grants you ownership up to the purchased value. i.e. assuming a company has 100 shares and you invest in 1 share, you have ownership of 1% of the company.
Investing in shares is generally aimed at increasing your money’s worth. Due to market factors & the company’s performance. The price of a company’s shares may rise or fall. Investors aim to purchase such shares whenever the prices drop and hold them for the long-term, estimating that the value of their investment will grow in tandem with the company’s growth. Traders on the other hand aim to target daily/short-term fluctuations in stock prices and profit by buying low and selling high.
This ownership can grant you the chance of earning further funds via two major methods, viz. Dividends & Sale proceeds.
Owning a share entitles you to earning a dividend as and when one is declared by the company, to continue with the earlier example if you have 1 share out of a 100 and the dividend declared by the company is ₹10,000, you would be entitled to ₹100 as dividend.
Sale Proceeds refer to the amount earned by you after selling the shares owned. Depending upon the company’s performance or the overall market’s ebbs & flows the market price of a stock is liable to change. Traders and market experts aim to tap into this opportunity and purchase stocks at a lower price and sell them when the price rises.

Picking the right stocks to invest in may be confusing or even difficult for some. Here are a few steps which can help you:
Start with quantitative research by reviewing the company’s financials.
Check for any key competencies such as management’s strengths, business potential, market study etc. This helps you identify more details of the company.
Estimate and forecast the growth and ascertain the qualitative aspects to adjudge fair valuations.
Being a market linked investment instrument, stocks are subject to risks such as market volatility and a decrease in value. However sound financial practices such as investing in bluechips, analysing stock/market fundamentals can help you securely build your stock portfolio. As a thumb rule it is wise to consult your financial advisor before investing.
Stock transactions generally involve two different types of tax, Capital Gains Tax and Securities Transaction Tax.
Capital Gains Tax is levied if and when you sell stocks at a profit. (Gain further capital on your investment) Depending on the time for which you hold on to these stocks, this tax can be Short-Term Capital Gains (STCG) Tax or Long-Term Capital Gains (LTCG) Tax. Profits made by selling off stocks within 1 year incur STCG Tax which is charged at 15% of the profit, while the profit on selling stocks after a year’s holding are termed as LTCG and are levied at 10% on any profit exceeding ₹1 lac.
Securities Transaction Tax is applicable upon stocks as and when they are traded on the stock exchange. It is levied across both Buy and Sell transactions for delivery trades at 0.1% of the transaction value and only upon the sale of intraday trades at 0.025% of the transaction value.
