guaranteed stock

Definition

Preferred or common stock of one corporation whose dividends are guaranteed by another corporation. Since the dividends are guaranteed, investors are generally willing to pay a higher amount for the stock than if the stock was not backed up by a guarantee. How valuable the actual guarantee is will depend on the guarantor's financial and credit history. The guaranteed stock arrangement has frequently been used by railroads.
