The stocks currently traded on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges are common stocks.
Preferred stocks are stocks that the company gives investors certain priority when raising funds. This priority is mainly manifested in two aspects:
① Preferred shares have a fixed dividend, which does not fluctuate with the performance of the company, and can receive dividends before ordinary shareholders;
② When the company goes bankrupt for liquidation of assets, the shareholders of the preferred shares have the right to claim the shares of the common shares of the company first. However, preference shares generally do not participate in the company’s dividend distribution, and shareholders do not have the right to vote, and cannot participate in the company’s management with the help of voting rights. Therefore, compared with common stocks, although the returns and participation in decision-making are limited, the risks are relatively small.
As its name implies, superior stocks are stocks of companies with good performance, but the definition of superior stocks is different at home and abroad. In China, the main indicators for investors to measure outstanding stocks are after-tax profit per share and return on net assets. Generally speaking, after-tax profit per share is in the upper middle position among all listed companies. After the company’s listing, the company’s return on net assets significantly exceeds 10% for three consecutive years. Excellent stocks have higher investment returns and investment value.
Junk stocks are stocks of companies that perform poorly. Some of these listed companies have entered the ranks of loss either because of poor industry prospects or poor management. Its stock’s performance in the market is sluggish, its stock price is lower, trading is not active, and year-end dividends are also poor. Investors should have a relatively high sense of risk when considering choosing these stocks, and must not blindly follow the speculation.
Blue-chip stocks—In the stock market, investors refer to the stocks of large companies that have important dominant positions in their industries, have good performance, are active in transactions, and have good dividends. The term “blue chip” comes from western casinos. In western casinos, there are two colors of chips, of which blue chips are the most valuable, red chips are second, and white chips are the worst. Investors have applied this jargon to stocks to get the title.
The concept of red chips was born in the Hong Kong stock market in the early 1990s. The People’s Republic of China is sometimes called the Red China internationally. Correspondingly, Hong Kong and international investors refer to those stocks with the concept of Mainland China that are registered overseas and listed in Hong Kong as red-chip stocks.
What are stock bonuses, dividends, and rights issues
The bonus issue means that the listed company distributes profits (or capital increase) to investors in the form of bonus shares to increase the shares held by investors and obtain investment income.
Dividends refer to dividends issued by listed companies in cash. This distribution method requires income tax. At the time of distribution, the current dividend and dividend income can be automatically entered into the shareholders’ account.
A rights issue is a way for a listed company to give investors a chance to invest in shares again. This is not a profit distribution method. After a listed company announces a rights issue, shareholders need to sell the corresponding rights warrants.For example, Tomorrow Technology (600091) is allocated 3 shares for every 10 shares.If the original 100 shares are sold, investors must sell 30 shares of Tomorrow Technology during the payment period after the ex-right A rights issue certificate (700091) and sufficient rights for the rights issue will be successful. The rights issue is subject to trading after the listing of the rights issue.
