Once long ago, Wall Street Journal published a list of all preferred stocks and their prices every day. That list is now rare.

However, it does appear in today's Wall Street Journal with information on returns for the year. For those wanting to invest in preferred stocks, this is an excellent resource.

It is not a particularly good time to buy preferred stocks. Yields are so low on other fixed incomes, that some will want to look at preferred issues. But most are now priced at a premium over their call price. And one suspects that those still discounted are discounted for a reason.

However, caveat emptor. Good hunting. The list is a good starting point for your research.
