Capital Gain

A capital gain is profit from the sale of an investment asset (such as real estate or stocks).

The profit that results from a disposition of a capital asset (such as a stock, a bond, or real estate) occurs when the amount of the sale exceeds the purchase price. The gain is the difference between a higher selling price and a lower purchasing price.
