Preferred Stock

Preferred stock is a type of corporate ownership that comes with preferred dividend rights and voting rights, but does not grant the same property rights as common stockholders. Here are some key points about preferred stock:

  • Preferred stockholders are typically paid dividends before common stockholders.
  • They have priority over common stockholders during liquidation.
  • Preferred stock can be either cumulative or non-cumulative.
  • It may have the option to convert into common stock.
