Common, Preferred, Voting, and Non-Voting are terms that can be used to describe actions. A common share is a type of share that is most often held by shareholders. A preferred share is usually a more valuable type of stock that can mean different things to a company depending on what was agreed upon when the company was founded. Preferred shares often do not have the right to vote. In addition, shareholders with preferred shares generally have priority over profits (or liquidation if this happens) over common shareholders. The structure of a company`s shares is often found in the company`s articles of association. If the guarantees are beneficial, the party it gives must be able to support them. When a buyer buys shares, all the guarantees given by the seller are given by him personally. . .
