A quick definition of voting-stock rights:

Voting-Stock Rights: When you own a part of a company by buying their stock, you have the right to vote on important decisions that affect the company. If you own common stock, you get one vote for each share you own. If you own preferred stock, you can vote only if the company hasn't paid you the dividends they promised for a certain amount of time.

A more thorough explanation:

Voting-stock rights refer to a stockholder's ability to vote on important matters related to the company they have invested in. This means that they have a say in the decisions made by the company's management and board of directors.

Common stockholders typically have one vote per share of stock they own. For example, if a person owns 100 shares of common stock in a company, they would have 100 votes to cast in any shareholder meetings. On the other hand, preferred stockholders usually have the right to vote only when preferred dividends are in default for a specified period.

For instance, if a company fails to pay dividends to its preferred stockholders for a certain period, they may be granted the right to vote alongside common stockholders. This ensures that preferred stockholders have a say in the company's decisions when their financial interests are at stake.

Overall, voting-stock rights are an essential aspect of owning stocks in a company. They allow shareholders to participate in the decision-making process and have a voice in the company's future.

Idk I doubt they can give you 10k cash, lmao, but who knows!
Others will disagree, but max out a credit card if you have to do so.
It's 10K. Not 100K.

10K at 21.51% interest. Lol
19:47
Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?

If someone can live below the student budget at GULC loans could cover an extra $10K, but Grad PLUS loans still amount to $2 in repayment for every $1 borrowed on a 10-year plan at current interest rates. Not a choice to make lightly.
