1 Managerial Economics (ARE) 143 University of California, Davis Instructor: John H. Constantine KEY—Chapter 3 Problem 1: (a) What are the distinguishing features of a money market instrument ? The two distinguishing characteristics are: (1) all money market instruments are debt instruments (i.e., IOUs), and (2) all have less than 12 months to maturity when originally issued. (b) Why is preferred stock “preferred”? Preferred stockholders have a dividend preference and a liquidation preference. The dividend preference requires that preferred stockholders be paid before common stockholders. The liquidation preference means that, in the event of liquidation, the preferred stockholders will receive a fixed face value per share before the common stockholders receive anything.
