Preferred Stock

An equity security that represents ownership in a corporation.

This class of stock entitles the owners to a dollar value per share in liquidation, after bond holders are paid. It also has a fixed dividend and priority over common shares. Preferred shares usually have voting rights when dividend payments have been missed. They are generally considered income investments.
