This looks like the same situation I was looking into in preferred stocks. The 10% yield looks great, but what does it
mean if the share price drops 10% per year?


If you do not intend to sell then you are probably ok.

If the company gets into financial problems the stock will drop and the dividend may stop. Then you will have a problem.
