Do anyone of you Fools invest in preferred stocks?

Yes. I have a portfolio of preferred stocks, mostly purchased in late 2009, that pays enough income that it's made my mortgage payment for the last 14 months.

What are the pros and cons?

Here is a recent article from Morningstar that talks about some of these issues http://news.morningstar.com/articlenet/article.aspx?id=36762...

How does one find which companies have issue preferred stock?

A good online source that I have found is www.quantumonline.com
