Default What is the difference between Stocks and Shares?

In today's financial markets, the distinction between stocks and shares has been somewhat unclear. Generally, these words are used interchangeably to refer to the pieces of paper that denote ownership in a particular company, called stock certificates. However, the difference between the two words comes from the context in which they are used.

They are different ways of saying the same thing. A share of stock is a proportional ownership of a company.

well actually the stocks refers to the financial asset, which are on the stock exchange market. "Shares" is used to refers to those assets , like when you are talking about ownership of a company, you are gonna use the word "share" to give an overview ( percentage) of how many stocks you have

"stock" is a general term used to describe the ownership certificates of any company, in general, and "shares" refers to a the ownership certificates of a particular company. So, if investors say they own stocks, they are generally referring to their overall ownership in one or more companies. Technically, if someone says that they own shares - the question then becomes - shares in what company?
