Common Stock
Common Stock represents the most frequently issued class of stock; usually it provides a voting right, but is secondary to preferred stock in dividend and liquidation rights. Common stockholders generally control the management of the corporation and tend to profit most if the company is successful, but are guaranteed neither dividends nor assets upon dissolution of their shares.
