    I'm a music major, not a business major so this may be a bit elementary. What happens when a company decides to open ownership to investors? For example, if Handspring's stock prices dropped through the floor what would that mean for them? Would ownership revert back to the company? Or would they lack funds to produce new products? What advantages does a company gain by going on the stock market? And why would stock prices influence someone's decision to buy a car, house, etc.? If I invest in a company for $50 and later sell for $50,000 where did that money come from? Curiosity got the better of me and I thought I'd ask here.
