How do I calculate stock and shares?

Let's say I invested $1,000 and bought the stocks for 0.30 (penny Stock). Now the stock went up to 0.70 How much profit would I have made.
Also, how do I calculate this exactly.
Best answer will be rated 10 points!

Also how do I calculate how much shares I can get for $1000.

How do I calculate stock and shares?

Postby meldon » Sun Jul 08, 2012 12:56 am

1000 / .30 = 3,333 shares
3333 x .70 = $ 2,333.33

2,333.33 - 1000 = $1,333.33 Profit

$1,333.33 Profit / $1000 = 1.333 x 100 = 133% Return

The Profit / by the original amount X 100 = The Return%

I suspect this is probably a math question and not an investor question but just incase let me say that Penny stocks tend to be less stable and not really a good place to start investing for someone just getting into the stock trade.

If the stock went up to.70 cents then that's .40 cent increase. Assuming you bought 3333 stocks, since .30 doesn't exactly divide into 1000 evenly then you've made a profit of 1333 dollars.
.70- .30 = .40 (profit per a stock)
1000/ .30 = 3333 (rounded) (Divide the amount of money by the price of the share)
3333 * .40= 1333 dollars. (Number of stocks multiplied by the profit)

Not a bad profit :)

If you are going to invest I would recommend looking into a gain loss calculator. If you have an iphone there is an app called Talk Penny Stocks that has one, as well as other investing tools. I'd also recommend starting with more stable companies who stocks are over 5 dollars. Many penny stock companies are either just starting out or not doing well making them a bad place for new investors to start.

Come on Sam, what is this kiddies corner? If you disregard costs then $1000=3333 shares at 30c each. So 40 cents profit (70-30)=3333 x 40c=$1333
I suggest learning some maths before investing (unless you are under the age of ten, or course!)

1000 / 0.30 = 3,333

Thats how much stock you got for 1000 dollars

now you have 0.70 x 3,333 = 2333

so now you have made 1333 profit !
