“Sa halagang 5,000 pesos lang magiging owner ka na ng Jollibee Corporation.“
“Sa halagang 10,000 pesos lang mag magiging owner ka na ng SM”
If you believed those statements or ideas and you are not part of Trader’s Lounge Family then it’s okay. I stopped forcing my beliefs to those outside my TL family a week ago. There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don’t fit into their box are weird. But I’ll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids.
Like ignorance. I found out that no matter how hard you try to let traders see the truth It won’t work unless sila mismo are seeking for the truth. My blogs and videos are for my TL Family.
If you belong sa Trader’s Lounge family ko and you have been a victim ng mga linya na yan noon. Let me wake you up sa truth. Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Let us start sa lagi mo naririnig na slogan sa mga gurus. “Sa halagang 5,000 pesos lang magiging owner ka na ng Jollibee Corporation. “Sa halagang 10,000 pesos lang mag magiging owner ka na ng SM” “Sa halagang ganito ganyang magiging owner ka na ng ganitong company“
A lot of newbies believe that to be true. I don’t. Let me tell you why you should not as well.
Ayun ky Riley Raul Reese: Most people don’t know what owning a stock really means—despite owning stocks themselves. Most people have heard the idea that a stock is a share of a corporation or a company. Under this definition, you can buy ownership in a company and that you get more claim to the company and its assets. This is only partially true—and many of the assumptions people make about owning a stock are outright false. Owning a stock isn’t ownership of a company or its assets. If it meant that, companies wouldn’t issue stock when they try to raise money.
READ THIS SLOWLY. It’s owning the rights that come with having that stock, as well as the stock’s monetary value that make investing in the stock market a worthwhile endeavor.
When you buy a stock share, you don’t own part of the company. A company that can sell shares is a corporation, and in law, corporations are treated as people. You can’t own a person.
Similarly, you don’t own the corporation’s assets by owning a stock. Otherwise, you’d be able to buy stock in JFC, then go into the building and take a burger without being arrested. Stock ownership doesn’t mean you control the company; owning a stock means that you are willing to vote in investor meetings. If you own stock in a company, it’s assumed that you have faith in management. You don’t get the right to kick down a company door and demand a bunch of changes. However, stock owners do have some say in how a company is run. When companies decide to add another member to the board of directors, stockholders are given the right to vote on who gets to be on that board. The people who are on that board will run the company and work to increase the stock’s value. Most people assume that buying stocks means that you get a cut of the corporation’s assets. This is not true. Otherwise, you could literally pick up items that belong to the company and walk away with them. It’s actually the “profits” that shareholders get to enjoy. Profits can be given to shareholders in a couple of ways: Dividends and stock price increase.
Buying up stocks also doesn’t mean that you have the right to refuse to sell them in certain situations.Owning a stock is actually a surprisingly complex agreement between the owner and the corporation. To a point, owning a stock is a risk, simply because it means that you are putting yourself in a business agreement in which you give money to the company in exchange for future profits. The company actually has the right to ask to end the agreement (via buying back stocks). In certain cases, the company may have the right to ask to buy back your stocks—or in the case of preferred stock, you might have the obligation to agree to sell your stocks if the company asks you to. Another thing owning a stock means is that you have the responsibility to do due diligence and take the risk of loss. Every company out there can fail—even blue chip stocks. Buying stocks means that you accept that risk. To reduce that risk, it’s up to you to research the stock in depth in order to determine whether the stock in question is as good an investment as you think.
Owning a stock doesn’t mean that you will get money back if the company goes bankrupt. Though companies are required to offer shareholders the chance to sell off stock during a company’s bankruptcy, a lot of shareholders don’t actually get any money back when a company dies out. This is because other investors who may have had other routes tend to have first picks. Those who invested in bonds or preferred stocks tend to see the most money back when they pull out of a bankrupt company. Common stockholders might not be able to recover any cash at all, unless you find someone foolish enough to buy stocks off of you.
Ask yourself after mo bumili ng stock. Do you feel like an owner of that company? When a person or a company tells you na “sa halagang ganito lang owner ka na ng ganitong company” its either clueless din sila or hinihikayat ka into buying or availing something. Do not be a victim.
You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your INFORMED opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.

Well in fairness, never naman ako nakarinig ng newbie sa trading na after makabili ng JFC shares ay pumunta ng Jollibee store demanding free food. Haha!

thank you and GOD bless !!
I have a personal experience with this. I have a boss in a company and he is one of the top 30 shareholders of this company. When a change in ownership happened, several changes were implemented and unfortunately, he was offered to resign/retire and this article/blog really proves that owning a stock does not make you a part owner of the company you invested in.
