A warrant is a type of certificate issued with a preferred stock. A preferred stock gives its holder claim to earnings and assets prior to common stockholders. The warrant enables the holder of the certificate to buy a certain amount of stock at a specific date at a specific price. Most often, this price is higher than the market price when the warrant or convertible bond is issued.
