Common Stock

Common stock is form of security that represents your ownership in a business corporation. Common stock owners can exercise their control by electing officials to the board of directors and by voting on any corporate policies brought forward. As a common stockholder you are at the bottom of ownership priority order. In a liquidation event, shareholders of common stock have a right to company assets after those of preferred shareholders, brought holders, and any other debtholders are first paid back.
