I'm curious about Corporate Bonds and Prefered Stocks.
1- Are they both callable; or is one and not the other?
2- If they're called- is the holder basically out-of-luck on getting a return?
3- Does the yield have anything to do with the duration to maturity?
4- If one does NOT need the current income- BUT wants more overall portfolio stability- which(or both) should be bought, and whether or not it should be kept in an IRA account to minimize tax consequences?
Thanks
Eddie
