Convertible Preferred Stock

A preferred stock that a stockholder may exchange, at any time after a waiting period, for common stock in the company issuing the bond. The number of shares one receives for each preferred share is determined when the convertible preferred stock is issued. A convertible preferred stock is a relatively low-risk investment because of the guaranteed dividends, but it affords the investor a great amount of leeway because he/she can exchange it for common shares, which have higher risk and higher returns.
