Hot Stocks Under 5 2010 – The Pros and Cons of Preferred Stocks

Hot Stocks Under 5 2010

If you have been looking at buying some stocks or shares you may have come across the term preferred stocks. But what does it mean, and are these stocks any more beneficial than common stocks?

Let’s take a look at what preferred stocks are to begin with. Basically speaking if you own preferred stocks in a company you will be paid a dividend on those stocks before any other common stockholders receive anything. This means that the common stockholders may not get anything, but you should still receive a payout.

The main benefit of this is of course safety. You are more likely to make money with preferred stocks to an extent, because if the dividends are limited the preferred stockholders will be first in the queue for payment. On the negative side however, because they are a safer bet you won’t have the same opportunity to make a higher profit. So you need to consider how safe you want your investment to be before deciding whether to buy such stocks or not. Hot Stocks Under 5 2010

Preferred stocks do offer the benefit of some advance knowledge though. If they pay a fixed dividend you can look at them and know how much profit you can look forward to. If you owned normal stocks you wouldn’t have that advantage.

But the downside of this is that common stocks could rise by a huge amount and end up being more profitable than preferred stocks. You need to ask yourself how much risk you want to have with your investment, and what you would like to earn from it.

Of course some businesses – no matter how successful they might have been in the past – end up going under at some point. You would hope that this wouldn’t happen to you because your shares could end up being worth nothing at all.

This is one situation in which having preferred stock is a good thing. In this case you would very likely get your money back – or at least some of it. In essence it can provide you with a small cushion of protection as opposed to nothing at all.

So if you are thinking of buying some shares and you don’t like the risks associated with common stocks, consider buying preferred stocks instead. They might just be what you are looking for, and they are certainly the safer option in general. Hot Stocks Under 5 2010

We here at TBP are all about putting weapon systems head-to-head for an all out war of who will reign supreme… today we have our first ever “VS.” review: the highly adaptable FN SCAR 17S vs. the Cadillac of AR-10’s, the MEGA Arms MA-TEN. These two popular rifles chambered in .308 (7.62x51mm) are put to the test for accuracy, comfort, reliability, ruggedness, and adaptability. We put a 1/2″ thick steel plate out at 600+ yards and take turns on both weapon systems and give you our overall thoughts and opinions in regards to both of these stellar firearms and which one would serve it’s owner better (including our thoughts on the optics). We go prone for this shootout on top of one of our TBP – mobiles: an M1009 Blazer (used military model). However, please bear in mind… it is 100% dependent on the person firing the weapon as well as the situation, mission, desired goal, etc., in regards to overall preference of either of these platforms. Anyway, we love to throw some .308 around, and this review gave us a great excuse to do just that! So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the review.
