Greetings, Dlocke, and welcome. You wrote:<<I saw the Fool dismiss preferreds as "not for the individual investor" but some of them look very attractive for the bond portion of my portfolio. I see a couple of GMs that earn 8.9 and 9.4% respectively.>>TMF rarely says any kind of investment is inappropriate, so I would be very surprized if you actually saw someone from TMF make such a comment. Perhaps you read that as a statement from a poster on the message boards somewhere? <<What would lead to a wide variety of returns on preferreds from a given company? PubSt (whoever they are) preferred range from 9.1% to 11.2%. Maybe some are convertibles?>>Yes, convertibility would be a valid reason.<<The Schwab bond desk said these were equities and I could buy them on line. I've never found the ticker symbols for them, though. Do these have ticker symbols and where can I find them?>>Do a search by the company name and you should be able to find the ticker.Regards..Pixy
