What are the benefits of investing in stocks?

I am very interested in investing, but I really don’t know how or what the benefits. How does it work in simple terms? I guess I need to read “Investing for Dummies” or something. Basically, if I put $20 towards a stock, if the company is still around in 10 years will I make a bunch of money? Or if I invest in something like Hannah Montana, will I not get anything in ten years since she won’t be popular?

capital gains and dividends if you do your homework there are decent returns to be made obviously there is risk you may loose it all
