    What's the difference between a stockholder and a bondholder in a Corp. ?

    Anyone want to share some insight? Maybe the pros and cons of each?

    Stockholder owns an "equity" interest in the company. In other words, you own part of the company and are entitled to share in the profits according to the stock plan. A bond holder is actually a creditor of the company. You dont own any interest in the business. You are only entitled to receive interest payments and eventually the face amount of the bond at maturity according to the terms of the bond.

    And in bankruptcy bond holders are higher up in repayment hierarchy. Then preferred shareholders, I think. Then common shareholders.

    The difference has already been mentioned, but the pros and cons briefly are

    Stock
    Pro: Generally speaking has a better long term growth potential
    Con: In a bankruptcy you are one of the last people to get paid

    Bond
    Pro: Depending on the type of bond you have stated percentage that the company will pay you over the life of bond until it reaches maturity and you are higher up on the repayment order

    Con: Generally speaking from a long term perspective they usually do not return as much as stocks and sometimes if the company goes bankrupt you could basically get very little back.

    Those are very basic pros and cons. Bonds can be anywhere from very low risk/yield such as bonds issued by the treasury or companies with high credit rating to high risk/yield bonds (also known as junk bonds) issued by companies that do not have a great credit rating.

    A stock holder takes an equity stake in the company, meaning he becomes a part owner. A bond holder buys corporate debt which the company pays back at an interest rate over time.

    Also, the difference right now is bondholders are broke, where as stock holders are almost broke.
