Income Deposit Security

A security that combines common stock and bonds. That is, when one purchases an IDS, one has effectively purchased a common share and part of a bond issue. This combines the stability of coupon payments with the potential for high returns of common stock. After a certain period of time, the investor may split an IDS into its component parts and sell them separately. An income deposit security is also called an income participating security and an enhanced income security.
