The A and B monikers are simply a way to refer to classes of stock that have different attributes. The differences may be related to voting rights, liquidation preferences, dividend rights, etc. These differences are determined by the company's board of directors and are documented in the prospectus and/or the company's SEC filings. To know what the exact differences are you'll have to read the prospectus. A shortcut procedure is to call the company's investor relations department. They may have a summary sheet that outlines the differences.
