Consider the following as you read:
One of the greatest benefits of a publicly held corporation is its ability to raise large amounts of capital from the issuance of stock. The higher the value of each share of stock, the more money a corporation can raise in a short amount of time. However, corporations are also faced with the pressure to keep stockholders happy with increasing profits and good dividend payouts. As you read through the lessons consider the following:

  1. How can companies control the value of their stock?
  2. What are some methods that investors can use to determine if a corporation is worth investing in?
