Guaranteed Dividend

A dividend that a company is required to pay on its preferred stock. Guaranteed dividends are generally cumulative, meaning that if a company skips a payment, it can make no dividend payments on common stock until preferred stockholders are satisfied in full. Under some circumstances, preferred stockholders can force the liquidation of a company that does not pay its guaranteed dividends.
