A retractable preferred shareholder ... can force the company to redeem the retractable preferred on a specified date(s) and at a specified price(s).

OBS

The correct French equivalent is "action" in this context because "stock" and "share" are used interchangeably as a singular noun. However, "stock" is usually a collective noun, with "actions" as its French equivalent and "shares" as its synonym.
