Common Shares

Shares otherwise known as Stocks typically take the form of shares of common stock. As a unit of ownership, common stock typically carries voting rights that can be exercised in corporate decisions.

Although there is a great deal of commonality between the stocks of different companies, each new equity issue can have legal clauses attached to it that make it dynamically different from the more general cases. Some shares of common stock may be issued without the typical voting rights being included. Or some shares may have special rights unique to them and issued only to certain parties. These, case by case variations, in the specific form of stock issuance is beyond the scope of this site, except to note that not all equity shares are the same.

Preferred Shares

A preferred share is a special type of stock that regularly pays you a set amount of money out of the company’s profits called dividends. They’re called preferreds because you get preferential claim to the profits ahead of common shareholders.
