No wonder if dropped so precipitously; check out its sector demographics, very dicey.

76.20% Financials
11.54% Materials
9.03% Consumer Discretionary
2.62% Energy
.33% Utilities
.03% S-T Securities

According to Morningstar, PFF is iShares S&P U.S. Preferred Stock Index. Unlike the underlying preferred stocks, PFF doesn't have a yield.

Also, PFF has fallen off a cliff, relative to the benchmarks, since first quarter 2007, which seems to be its inception.

This doesn't seem like a good investment to me.

<of course PFF has a dividend; here's the history.>

Gosh, thanks! I couldn't understand why it didn't. I guess I should have gone directly to the company, instead of Morningstar.
