anyone know a good website or youtube channel for micro and macroeconomics basics? and if you had to choose to revise one of them in one day for an exam which would be more important? thank you in advance, is it possible to learn both in 1 day for an exam on tuesday? i only know supply and demand curves...
kinda crazy to read this, im in the exact same situation, having to revise for my microeconomics exam on tuesday. ive only compiled some of the stuff so far, still have to learn it. i also have my macroeconomics exam coming up, but i dont think its possible to learn both in 1 day, sorry brah, im gonna skip that exam. unfortunately, i cant really point you to a website or youtube channel either. there are great youtube channels that offer free lectures, but the videos are probably too long to finish before your exam. my profs have set up a moodle test area with questions and answers that cover all areas of microeconomics, so thats what im compiling. id share, but its in german.
Not OP but please explain how and why a stocks worth goes up when there's more demand for one and down when theres more supply. Entire company is worth 1000 and theres 10 shareholders. Each share is worth 100 dollars right? Another guy invests 100 more dollars. 1100/ 11 is STILL 100 DOLLARS. WHAT THE FUCK AM I MISSING? I know im missing something here.
The number of shares is fixed. Issuing more shares reduces the value of the existing shares.
owners equity is a new term for me.
so the 20m/2m equals 10 is the equity/share. Now is that 10 dollars what you buy it on the stock market for? Im fairly new to economics but i am currently really interested in it.
No. The equity/share is just what a shareholder is entitled to if the company shuts down.
Market price is whatever people are willing to pay for the shares. I could have one share in that example company and offer it for sale for $20. If someone buys it from me, the market price is $20/share -- even if the equity/share is only $10.
As for why someone would want to pay more (or less) for a share than the amount of equity it's worth, there are a few reasons. The main one is that you think the company is going to grow. If I offer my one share for $20 and you think the equity/share is eventually going to grow to $40 then it would make sense for you to buy the share at $20, wait, and then sell for a profit.
AHHHH. I see now. So if the owners equity goes up to say 30 million in the example. then the equity/share is suddenly worth 15. But that doesnt matter on the stock market because theres a bit of bargaining on the original shareholders part and the new sharholders part. And what we see on the stock market is THAT bargaining price and what people are willing to pay for it. So the stock price on the NASDAQ or NYSE isnt the actual price its just what people think each share is worth at the time.
Thanks i read a lot of stuff on it and it didnt really help me much.
The person who holds the shares will place a sell order on the exchange saying how many shares they want to sell and how many dollars/share they're willing to accept. If a buyer sees this order and thinks it's a good deal, they'll fork over the cash and get the shares in return. The price of a particular stock on the exchange is determined by the dollars/share of the last order that was filled.
