Puttable Common Stock

Common stock in a publicly-traded company that an investor may sell back to the issuing company at a certain price. This price is determined when the stock is issued. Generally, the price is relatively low in order to discourage abuse of the option, but it protects the investor from the risk that the share price will collapse.
