Stock Market Laws

What is the stock market?

The stock market is a network of transactions that takes place for selling and buying stocks and shares of different companies. People invest in the stocks of different companies and earn dividends. However, it may not be easy for everybody to understand the different stock market regulations and how the stock market works. Lack of information about the stock market can lead to an individual investing wrongly and losing a lot of money. Hence, it is important to get as much information about the stock market as possible before investing anything. Given below are top questions that are answered by Experts on the stock market problems, rules and regulations.

Can a Person, who is not a Licensed Securities Broker, set up a Business Recommending Stock Market Ideas and Securities?

It is unlikely that a person who is not a licensed securities broker will be allowed to set up a business recommending stock market ideas and securities. All states in the US require the person to be licensed to give any kind of investment advice.

Can an Individual Post his/her Stock Market Activities on a Personal Blog?

An individual may post his/her stock market activities on a personal blog if there is a disclaimer on the blog that clarifies that all information on it is based on the individual’s personal activities and that he/she is not a qualified investment expert. The blog should make it clear that the individual cannot give any investment advice.

Should a Shareholder Report the Profits that he/she makes in the Form of Dividends in the Stock Market, on his/her Personal Tax Returns?

Dividends earned from stock markets may be considered as regular income. Hence, an individual will have to report it on his/her personal tax returns irrespective of the amount. It is likely that the individual may not have to pay the tax on the amount, but it has to be reported.

Will an Individual Lose his/her Stock in a Company, if the Company goes into Bankruptcy?

It is unlikely that an individual will lose his/her stock in a company if the company goes into bankruptcy, unless the company loses business completely. The individual may still get some monetary recovery if the assets of the company are liquidated.

Can a Foreign National use the PDF Document of his/her Stock Market Account Statement in Court in case of Fraud?

In most cases, a PDF document of the stock market account statement may be used as proof in court in case of a fraud.

Is there a Minimum $ Value that an Individual needs to set for his/her Company, if he/she wants to Sell it?

In most cases, there is no minimum $ value that needs to be set while selling a company unless the shareholders of the company, if any, take objection to the low price that it is being sold at. Besides this, there may be no legal issue with selling a company at a value that is lower than its actual worth. No price would be considered to be fair or unfair unless the company is being sold in the public stock market.

Having information about the stock market rules and regulations can help individuals when dealing in the stock market. It can help individuals understand the stock market situation better and deal with stock market highs and lows as well.
