Learn what is stock exchange, Bursa Malaysia & Mr DIY

Klik sini untuk Bahasa Melayu

Let us learn the super basic of Investing:

A stock exchange acts as a market where stock buyers connect with stock sellers. Stocks can be bought and sold on several exchanges. In Malaysia we have Bursa Malaysia. In the US, there is the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).

Stocks here means equities.

The stocks first become available on an exchange after a company puts its shares on the exchange; this is initial public offering (IPO). For example, Mr DIY Group Bhd conducted its IPO in Oct 2020, putting 941.49 million shares on Bursa Malaysia.

You, as an investor, buy those shares. And then another person offers to buy those shares at a higher amount. This difference is your profit (but if you sell it a lower price, that is your loss).

When you buy the shares, you actually become a small owner of Mr DIY😊
