Noncumulative Preferred Stock

Preferred stock for which the publicly-traded company does not need to pay all dividends. If a company misses a dividend payment for any reason, it no longer owes the dividend to noncumulative preferred stockholders. That is, all dividends that were "skipped" are treated as if they never existed. Noncumulative preferred stocks are rare because they are unattractive to preferred stock investors.
