Here’s an easy formula for calculating the value of preferred stock: Cost of Preferred Stock = Preferred Stock Dividend (D) / Preferred Stock Price (P). Par value of one share of preferred stock equals the amount upon which the dividend is calculated. In other words, par value is the face value of one share of stock.
The value of a preferred stock equals the present value of its future dividend payments discounted at the required rate of return of the stock. In most cases the preferred stock is perpetual in nature, hence the price of a share of preferred stock equals the periodic dividend divided by the required rate of return.
The preferred share price, or pref price, is what investors paid for one company share during the latest investment round. The pref price does not directly mean anything for your employee equity, but may be interesting to you as a signal of company success or to help you value your company shares.
