How share prices work
The price of a share is updated in real time on the JSE and your stockbroker can give you an updated price. If you have an online stockbroker, you will be able to view share prices online.
Reading share prices
The prices give you a lot of information.
Firstly, they’ll give you the day’s move, in cents and as a percentage. You will also see how many shares have been transacted (volume) as well as the value of the shares that have traded on the day.
Many sources of this information will also include the current dividend yield (DY).
