To most people who are not savvy in the investing tools that can provide good sources of income. The stocks and shares are just one and the same. However for those who dabble in these types of investments the differences are only too obvious.

The following are some of the more common and easily explained differences:

Stocks are primary investment style elements that are commonly paid up in full. As for the acquiring of shares, payments can be either in full or staggered. It would all depend on the agreements drawn up by the owner of the business who is extending the participating platform.

Companies that are incorporated are privy to the share issuing style of investments; however this cannot be extended to those wanting to invest as stocks as stock options cannot be issued under these same circumstances.

Therefore only listed companies with strong portfolios can apply to have their company offer stocks as investment opportunities for interested parties.

Stocks have the convenience of transferable facilities that don’t require long waiting periods or periods where legal implications have to be sorted out first. With stocks, the transferring methods are clear and quick and can be done in fractional parts.

When it comes to the shares style of investment the same cannot be applied as firstly shares cannot the divided below the face value of each share nor can the transactions be done conveniently and often.

The legal implications that the transferring of shares constitutes is not as easy or as convenient as that of stocks which can be done registered or unregistered through a simple delivery method. Shares however have to be always registered and are not transferable by just a simple delivery.

All shares have a serial number which depicts the legality of the document. This however does not apply to stocks which are unnumbered serially or otherwise.
