Please add:
Wikipedia defines a stock: "In business and finance, a share (also referred to as equity share) of stock means a share of ownership in a corporation (company)."
"A share is a unit of account for various financial instruments including: stocks, mutual funds, limited partnerships, and REITs(Real Estate Investment Trust)"(Wikipedia)
