Supplementary notes

Coverage: All ABI members and some non-member insurance companies.
Two types of stock exist, ordinary (also called common) and preferred. Per definition "ordinary stock holders cannot be paid dividends until all preferred stock dividends are paid in full. In the event of bankruptcy, common stock investors receive any remaining funds after bondholders, creditors (including employees), and preferred stock holders are paid. On the other hand, common shares on average perform better than preferred shares or bonds over time."
