Preferred Stock Definition Monday, October 22, 11:02 AM ET
Preferred stock refers to an equity security that has the properties of both a debt instrument and an equity. Preferred shares are senior to common stock, but subordinate to bonds, and usually carry no voting rights. Credit rating agencies rate preferred stocks, though ratings are lower than bonds as the dividends do not have the same guarantees of interest payments that bonds have.
