Question and answer
When and why do corporations issue common and preferred stock?
Corporations issue preferred stocks to raise cash. Although you buy or sell them the same way you trade regular stocks, preferreds are more like bonds than common stocks. [ Investors buy them for the steady dividends, which typically equate to 4% to 8% yields. Most preferreds pay dividends quarterly. ]

Does the partnership really have to reconstitute itself legally, and, if so, would it be wise to do so without a formal agreement?
Weegy: Generally, filing business certificates with your county clerk (or secretary of state) does not absolutely require a lawyer's help. If it did, all of the online business filing companies you see popping up would be out of business. [ [ That said, business certificates (or business licenses as they are sometimes called) are legal documents. And, while I might be biased, I believe it's good business hygiene to consult with an attorney whenever you are faced with a legal document. In addition, going into business with your son raises a whole host of issues concerning your ownership, management and entitlement to profits from your business. Without the proper documentation, state laws often contain default provisions that make assumptions--and those assumptions may not match how you want to run your company. Another good reason to have a lawyer on your team. ] (More)

For what reasons do corporations acquire treasury stock and how does treasury stock affect stockholders’ equity?
Weegy: When a company issues stock, net assets and stockholders equity increase because the company receives an asset, usually cash, in exchange for the stock. [ Similarly, when a company repurchases its own stock, net assets and stockholders equity decrease because the company used assets, generally cash, to repurchase the stock. ] (More)
