    What is MSFTP?

    I'm just learning the stock market and am wondering why Microsoft shows up as MSFT and MSFTP. There's not a lot info on Yahoo! about MSFTP. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

    • Microsoft issued a preferred stock at about $80 or so... that pays a dividend of 2.75% interest or so...and that redeems about three years after$127...if the common stock is trading above that amount...They are using the proceeds of the preferred issue to buy their own common stock ! ...The exact details are available in their annual report...
