Really Dumb




“سهام” means “stocks” in Arabic. Stocks are like pieces of a company that you can buy and own. When you own stocks in a company, you are a part owner of that company. For example, if you buy a stock in a toy company, you own a small part of that toy company. If the toy company does well and makes a lot of money, the value of your stock goes up. But if the company doesn’t do well, the value of your stock can go down. One verifiable fact about stocks is that they are traded on stock exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq. People buy and sell stocks on these exchanges to invest in companies and potentially make money. An analogy for stocks is like owning a piece of a pizza. If the pizza is really popular and a lot of people want to buy it, the value of your piece goes up. But if no one wants to buy the pizza, the value of your piece could go down.
