American Depository Share

A certificate issued by an American bank representing a share of a foreign stock the bank holds in trust but that is traded on an American stock exchange. An American depository share is dollar-denominated and entitles the bearer to any dividends and other benefits associated with the single share underlying it. In other words, an American depository share is a single share of an American depository receipt.
