There are investments and investments.

If you did you'd have some idea of what the

That is not an investment, but largly gambling,

But isn't the stock market essentially you, the share holder, betting

It's more like betting that the stock price will rise or fall unrelated to the book value of a company or its earnings/balance sheet. We know this from the dot-com bust. Gee, just a $5.2 billion loss. Buy Uber!
