Common Stocks

Common stock is what you usually trade in the open market and is what most companies offer to the public.

Most active traders and investors purchase common stock for a few reasons:

  • Common stock is more liquid, meaning more shares available to trade and smaller spreads
  • You have voting rights, rights to receive dividends and a claim on company assets
