I'm trying to understand shares as of "now", so I know more or less nothing about them. I have discovered this website: http://www.google.com/finance?q=microsoft
I entered in microsoft and it comes up with
At the top of the page, it says "Currency in USD".
So what do those figures mean?
Does it mean 1 share of Microsoft is currently valued at $27.72 USD as of Jul 29, 7:03AM EDT?
