Encyclopedia > Outstanding stock

Outstanding stock is common stock that has been authorized and issued by a corporation and purchased by investors. It has voting rights and represents ownership in the corporation by the person or institution that holds the stock. It should be distinguished from treasury stock, which is common stock that has been repurchased by the corporation or that is authorized, but not yet issued (i.e., still held in the corporate "treasury").
