1. Introduction

Equity securities represent ownership claims on a company’s net assets. As an asset class, equity plays a fundamental role in investment analysis and portfolio management because it represents a significant portion of many individual and institutional investment portfolios.
The study of equity securities is important for many reasons. First, the decision on how much of a client’s portfolio to allocate to equities affects the risk and return characteristics of the entire portfolio. Second, different types of equity securities have different ownership claims on a company’s net assets, which affect their risk and return characteristics in different ways. Finally, variations in the features of equity securities are reflected in their market prices, so it is important to understand the valuation implications of these features.
This chapter provides an overview of equity securities and their different features and establishes the background required to analyze and value equity securities in a global context. It addresses the following questions:
  • What distinguishes common shares from preference shares, and what purposes do these securities serve in financing a company’s operations?
  • What are convertible preference shares, and why are they often used to raise equity for unseasoned or highly risky companies?
  • What are private equity securities, and how do they differ from public equity securities?
  • What are depository receipts and their various types, and what is the rationale for investing in them?
  • What are the risk factors involved in investing in equity securities?
  • How do equity securities create company value?
  • What is the relationship between a company’s cost of equity, its return on equity, and investors’ required rate of return?
The remainder of this chapter is organized as follows. Section 2 provides an overview of global equity markets and their historical performance. Section 3 examines the different types and characteristics of equity securities, and Section 4 outlines the differences between public and private equity securities. Section 5 provides an overview of the various types of equity securities listed and traded in global markets. Section 6 discusses the risk and return characteristics of equity securities. Section 7 examines the role of equity securities in creating company value and the relationship between a company’s cost of equity, its return on equity, and investors’ required rate of return. The final section summarizes the chapter.

2. Equity Securities in Global Financial Markets

This section highlights the relative importance and performance of equity securities as an asset class. We examine the total market capitalization and trading volume of global equity markets and the prevalence of equity ownership across various geographic regions. We also examine historical returns on equities and compare them to the returns on government bonds and bills.
Exhibit 1 summarizes the contributions of selected countries and geographic regions to global gross domestic product (GDP) and global equity market capitalization. Analysts may examine the relationship between equity market capitalization and GDP as a rough indicator of whether the global equity market (or a specific country’s or region’s equity market) is under-, over-, or fairly valued, particularly compared to its long-run average.
Exhibit 1 illustrates the significant value that investors attach to publicly traded equities relative to the sum of goods and services produced globally every year. It shows the continued significance, and the potential overrepresentation, of US equity markets relative to their contribution to global GDP. That is, while US equity markets contribute around 51 percent to the total capitalization of global equity markets, their contribution to the global GDP is only around 25 percent. Following the stock market turmoil in 2008, however, the market capitalization to GDP ratio of the United States fell to 59 percent, which is significantly lower than its long-run average of 79 percent.
As equity markets outside the United States develop and become increasingly global, their total capitalization levels are expected to grow closer to their respective world GDP contributions. Therefore, it is important to understand and analyze equity securities from a global perspective.
The figure shows two different pie charts. The pie chart on the top illustrates the contributions of selected countries and geographic regions to global gross domestic product (GDP) 2017. The regions are USA with 25%, Japan with 6%, UK with 4%, France with 3%, Germany with 5%, China with 15%, Canada with 2%, Switzerland with 1%, Australia with 2%, Smaller Yearbook with 9%, and Other with 28%.The pie chart at the bottom illustrates the contributions of selected countries and geographic regions to global equity market capitalization.  The regions are USA with 51%, Japan with 9%, UK with 6%, France with 3%, Germany with 3%, China with 3%, Canada with 3%, Switzerland with 3%, Australia with 2%, Smaller Yearbook with 7%, and Other with 9%.
