Ownership in a firm.
In real estate, this is the difference between what the property could be sold for and any debts against it.
With a brokerage account, it is the value of the assets held minus any debit balance from margin trades.
It is also commonly used as a synonym to "stock". When someone refers to the equities market, they are talking about the stock market.
