    The overall percentage of the company one owns.

    A common shareholder is anyone owning common stock in a publicly traded company.

    The term "major shareholder" is usually used to specify someone owning enough of a company that they must report trades that they make in stock (or derivatives) to a regulatory authority, such as the SEC.
