Stock investment is one type of investment instrument known as ‘high risk high return.’ This means that this investment has a high level of risk, but provides high returns as well.
The profit from investing in stocks really depends on market movements and the performance of the company whose shares you hold. That’s why there are terms capital gains (profits from rising stock prices) and capital losses (losses from falling stock prices).
In contrast, the profits from stock investments fluctuate, depending on market movements and the performance of the company whose shares you buy. For example, you buy shares of a mining company at a price of Rp. 1,000 per share for Rp. 20 million.
Then you get 200 thousand shares or 200 lots (1 lot = 100 shares). If in a year this stock increases in price by Rp. 200 and becomes Rp. 1,200 per share, then the shares are sold, you will make a profit of Rp. 40 million.
These profits are potentially higher if you keep the stock in the long term. It is possible that the stock will move up and you get hundreds, even thousands of percent profits.
