A unit of stock representing ownership of a corporation and sometimes a limited partnership. A share certificate issued by the corporation in the name of the person owning the share represents the number of shares owned by a particular shareholder. Two types are used: common stock and preferred stock. Par value represents the equivalent dollar amount equal to one share’s value. See Stock, Common stock.
