Perhaps the riskiest of investments in the market is a common stock (stocks technically vary in degrees of risk depending on the type of company into which you choose to buy). A common stock is defined as a security that represents ownership in a corporation. Holders of common stock exercise control by electing a board of directors and voting on corporate policy. Common stockholders are on the bottom of the priority ladder for ownership structure. In the event of liquidation, common shareholders have rights to a company's assets only after bondholders, preferred shareholders and other debt holders have been paid in full.
