Stocks embody a shareholder’s right to claim a part of a company’s financial assets. There are two main stock types: preferred and common. In case of a Common stock ownership, a shareholder is entitled to receive dividends and also vote at shareholders’ meetings. In case of a Preferred stock, the shareholder is usually not entitled to a voting right, but is entitled to a higher claim on company’s earnings and assets, than common shares provide.
