I don't own stocks. I lease them!

When do you own a stock?

When you paid for a stock with no intention to sell it for profit at the near future; then you can be thought of owning a stock.

When do you lease a stock?

When you paid for a stock with a definite intention to sell it for profit at the near future; then you can be thought of leasing a stock.

So I don't own stocks; I lease them.


  1. Hi,

    I have another view:
    You own a stock when you are paying in full amount.
    You lease a stock when you are not paying in full amount, eg using CDF or other margin tools.

  2. Hmm... CFD and Margins may be are like going to a popular furniture outlet paid a down payment for a piece of furniture and use for a while and then return. LOL
