Five or ten years ago preferred stocks were excellent investments--especially while interest rates were declining.
Now with interest rates so low, many quality issues have been called and often they are priced at a premium over their call price.
QuantumOnLine.com is an excellent source of information on them.
With interest rates starting to rise, you need to be very careful investing in preferred stocks.
I sold most of mine or they got called. I have not bought one in years.
Not recommended unless you have a very good reason.
