Stanley Black & Decker seems to have three symbols on the NYSE.

  • SWK: Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.
  • SWP: Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. CORP UNIT 2017
  • SWJ: Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. JR SUB DEB 52

SWK seems to me to be straight forward company stock. But I do not really understand what SWP and SWJ, or why I might want to invest in them. This makes it hard for me to valuate SWK since I do not understand how the holdings in SWP and SWJ might influence the company's financial standing or where those shares might stand in priority.

Can someone give a push in the right direction?
