Pros and Cons for Investing in Preference Shares
Why you should or shouldn't consider it as part of your portfolio?

Have a knowledge on different type of preference shares and where to buy them.

Saturday, April 10, 2010

What are different type of preference shares and how to buy them?

What are convertible preference shares?
Preference shares can be convertible or non-convertible. Convertible preference shares have the flexibility of converting to common shares. This allows you to lock in the dividend income and potentially profit from a rise in the price of the common stock. Non-convertible preference shares will not have such flexibility to convert to common shares.

What are cumulative preference shares?
Preference shares can be cumulative or non-cumulative. For cumulative preference shares, it means that if a company missed any dividends within the year, such missed dividends in the previous financial year will be accumulated to the next financial year. This is provided that you are still holding the shares. For non-cumulative preference shares, missed dividends in the previous financial year will not be accumulated to the next financial year.

How to buy preference shares?
You can buy or sell preference shares just like a common stock if they are listed on the Singapore stock exchange (SGX). You can do so either through a stock broker or an online trading platform.

New issue of the preference shares can be purchased from primary markets just like a new IPO stock. You can do so either through private placement, via ATM offers or other available placement channels.

Pros and Cons for Investing in Preference Shares

Pros:
Preference shares have the priority over common stocks in the way that their investors will receive the dividends before the common stock investors. It is good for investors who are just targeting on dividend yields since the company will pay them the dividends in full first.

In case of the company bankruptcy, investors of the preference shares will be paid out in assets before common stockholders.

Price movement of the preference shares will be slow due to low volume trading. Hence investors will not need to spend too much time focusing on the price movement.

Cons:
Keep in mind as well that preference shares may be illiquid as compared to common shares. You may not be able to buy and sell as quickly as equities because of the low volume trading for preference shares.

Preference shares are not suitable for investors who are targeting in capital gain. It is because preference shares tend to give you lower capital gains compared to normal shares.

The issuer has the right, but no obligation, to redeem the preference shares. In the event of redemption, the issuer is likely to pay the investor the issue price for each preference share, plus any dividends payable up to the redemption date. Please note that investors might suffer some loses if they bought their shares at a price higher than the issue price in case of redemption.
