Preferred Shares

Preferred Shares Definition

Also known as preferred stock, preferred shares have a dividend that is paid before dividends to common stockholders.  Preferred shareholders do not vote and the details of the design of a preferred stock system vary company to company.  It has both debt (fixed dividends) and equity (appreciation).  Preferred shares have both positive and negative aspects.  While preferred shareholders have priority over common stockholders on earnings and assets in the event of bankruptcy and have a fixed return, they do not have voting rights and also have less potential for greater profit.
