retired securities

Definition

Stocks that are repurchased by its original issuers. For example, a publicly-traded company can buy back its own stock with the aim of making these stocks untradeable, therefore reducing the amount of stock available for shareholders to buy. This conversely prevents shareholders from obtaining a large stake in the company.
