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.
