What Determines a Stock Price?

Do you know what determines a stock price? There are a lot of complex formulas that affect a stock price, but in essence…

Price movement of a stock is caused by supply and demand in the market. If more people want to buy than sell then the price goes up, the inverse is true if more people want to sell a stock than buy, as surplus drives the price down.

Price movement can even be moved by people emotions.

To help you understand what determines a stock price, what affects it and defines it, I decided to create an infographic that breaks it all down.

The one thing we do know for sure is that stocks are volatile and prices can change rapidly. Always remember stock price fluctuations are dictated by supply and demand in the market, which reflect investor’s sentiments and evaluation of the present and future value of a stock.

    My question: Why doesn’t anyone look at cashflow? Yes, I am a real estate investor and thats my main criteria, but information on that and showing how positive they are each quarter I would think is more valuable.
