EQUITY TRADING.

December 17, 2020 By Swapnil Suryawanshi

In finance, equity is ownership of assets that may have debts or other liabilities attached to them. Equity is measured for accounting purposes by subtracting liabilities from the value of an asset.

Origins :

The term “equity” describes this type of ownership in English because it was regulated through the system of equity law that developed in England during the Late Middle Ages to meet the growing demands of commercial activity. 

SINGLE ASSETS :

Any asset that is purchased through a secured loan is said to have equity. While the loan remains unpaid, the buyer does not fully own the asset. The lender has the right to repossess it if the buyer defaults, but only to recover the unpaid loan balance.

Accounting :

Financial accounting defines the equity of a business as the net balance of its assets reduced by its liabilities. The fundamental accounting equation requires that the total of liabilities and equity is equal to the total of all assets at the close of each accounting period.

A company’s shareholder equity balance does not determine the price at which investors can sell its stock. Other relevant factors include the prospects and risks of its business, its access to necessary credit, and the difficulty of locating a buyer. According to the theory of intrinsic value, it is profitable to buy stock in a company when it is priced below the present value of the portion of its equity and future earnings that are payable to stockholders. Advocates of this method have included Benjamin GrahamPhilip Fisher and Warren Buffett.
