Capital Gain

Capital gain is a profit that results from investments in a capital asset such as stocks, bonds, or real estate, which exceeds the purchase price. It is the difference between a higher selling price and a lower purchase price, resulting in a financial gain for the investor. Capital gains may refer to ‘investment income’ that arises in relation to real assets, such as property; financial assets, such as shares/stocks or bonds; and intangible assets, such as goodwill.
