SHARE MARKET--If I buy large amounts of stocks of a company can I own it?


You can own the stock, but not the company. Most companies that go public put up less than 49% of the ownership for public sale. Most a lot less. There have been some cases where someone has bought enough public shares to where they own a “controlling interest” in the company. If a company issues 30% of the ownership of the company to the public and you buy up 18% of that 30%, then you may end up owning more of the company than the founders do. Warren Buffet has done this before where he “corners the market” on the stock, buys a controlling interest, takes over the board and then sometimes even buys the entire company.
