K

Fifth letter of a Nasdaq stock symbol specifying the issue has no voting rights.

K

1. Shorthand for 1,000.

2. A symbol appearing next to a stock listed on NASDAQ indicating that the share being traded has no voting rights. All NASDAQ listings use a four letter abbreviation; if a K follows the abbreviation, this indicates that the share comes without voting rights attached to it.

K

Used frequently in the financial literature as a symbol for 1,000.

k

Used in the dividend column of stock transaction tables of newspapers to indicate dividends that have been paid so far during the year on an issue of preferred stock with dividends in arrears: pf 1.75k.
