Non Cumulative Preferred stock

Written by Fmi.Online Friday December 9, 2022
Noncumulative preferred stock is preferred stock that loses the rights to any dividends if the dividends are not declared in the current period. In other words, if dividends are not declared in the current year, noncumulative preferred shareholders do not receive a dividend for that year and can’t try to collect that dividend in future years. These shares are noncumulative, so they do not accumulate unpaid dividends.      

Explanation :

  Unlike cumulative preferred stock, noncumulative preferred stock does not utilize the dividend in arrears to account for unpaid dividends. Noncumulative preferred stockholders have priority over common shareholders when it comes to dividends that are declared in the current year. All preferred dividends must be paid first, but if no dividends are declared, the noncumulative preferred shareholders don’t get a dividend that year.      

In a nutshell :

  • Noncumulative stock does not pay unpaid or omitted dividends.
  • Cumulative stock entitles investors to missed dividends.
  • Cumulative preferred stock is more attractive to investors than noncumulative.
