We bought stock shares in the amount of $1.65 for $165,000.00
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 7 years ago.
Ahh, I see.

Typically a stock security is very risky, and past performance does not guarantee future results. That means that while a stock has the ability to increase in value, it also has the ability to drop (or even completely lose all value). Right now the stock is worth $0.913 . However if the company does go out of business, you will not be entitled to anything. Typically creditors get paid first, then debt and bond holders, then preferred stock, and if anything is left over, then the common stock shareholders. If worried about your investment, get your funds out even at a loss, if you are worried that the company will go out of business.
