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.Wendy
