The term is used in Germany , Austria , Switzerland , South Tyrol and for companies incorporated in the German-speaking region of Belgium . It is also used in Luxembourg (French pronunciation: ​ ), though the French-language equivalent, _ Société Anonyme _, is more common. CONTENTS * 1 Meaning of the word * 2 Legal basis * 3 Structure * 4 Similar forms * 5 See also * 6 References * 7 Further reading MEANING OF THE WORD _ Example for an Aktie_ for 1000 Reichsmark (RM). The German word _Aktiengesellschaft_ is a compound noun made up of two elements: _Aktien_ meaning shares , and _Gesellschaft_ in this context meaning corporation; from its other meaning of _an organized group working together, and periodically meeting, because of common interests_ (Society).

symbols are unique identifiers assigned to each security traded on a particular market. For example, AAPL is for Apple Inc.; OODH is for Orion DHC, Inc.; and HD is for Home Depot, Inc. A stock symbol can consist of letters, numbers, or a combination of both, and is a way to uniquely identify that stock. The symbols were kept as short as possible to reduce the number of characters that had to be printed on the ticker tape , and to make it easy to recognize by traders and investors. The allocation of symbols and formatting convention is specific to each stock exchange.

MUNICH (/ˈmjuːnɪk/ ; German: _München_, pronounced (_ listen ), Bavarian : Minga_ , Czech : _Mnichov_) is the capital and the most populated city in the German state of Bavaria , on the banks of River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps . Munich is also the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg , and the 12th biggest city of the European Union, with a population of around 1.5 million. The Munich Metropolitan Region is home to 6 million people. The city is a major centre of art, advanced technologies, finance, publishing, culture, innovation, education, business, and tourism in Germany and Europe and enjoys a very high standard and quality of living, reaching #1 in Germany and #4 worldwide according to the 2015 Mercer survey . According to the Globalization and World Rankings Research Institute Munich is considered an alpha-world city , as of 2015 . The name of the city is derived from the Old / Middle High German term _Munichen_, meaning "by the monks", which in turn is derived from Mönch (which in the end derives from ancient Greek μοναχός). It derives from the monks of the Benedictine order , who ran a monastery at the place that was later to become the Old Town of Munich; hence the monk depicted on the city\'s coat of arms . Munich was first mentioned in 1158
