Preferred Stocks

Preferred stocks are much less common but have some perks over common stocks:

  • Have a higher claim on the company’s assets and earnings over common stock
  • Receive dividends before common stock shareholders
  • Have priority on a company’s assets over common shareholders

Preferred stocks trade on the open market as well but have a different ticker symbol and can vary depending on your broker.
