Think of "stock" as the entire amount of equity in a company and "share" as your part of it. Just like your share of pie at dessert.Sometimes they get interchanged but when you hear someone say "the company's shares" what they're implying is "the company's shares of stock." The person is basically abbreviating.You could look up the financial data on a number of financial websites. For example, here's Yahoo Finance's page on AAPL:http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=aapl&ql=1If you expand the chart you can see what the share (of stock) price has done over the years.Mike
