So I ran a screen on Quantum Online just before making the initial post on this thread. Initial criteria:- Min coupon rate = 7%- Preferred Stocks and Trust Preferreds only- All Company Securities- Only US securities- NYSE/AMEX/Nasdaq securities only- Securities with cumulative dividendsThis returned 198 income securities.Me, with the slight touch of OCD that I possess, decided to create my own spreadsheet of these securities. I took the initial results from Quantum and further screened these securities for companies that paid a regular dividend of at least 2% (why 2%? well, had to pick a number and that seems to me to be a decent cushion though I know one cannot count on REITs to pay at a consistent rate). I also stripped out any securities that are called or partially called or have anything "funky" going on with them. This has given me a list of 96 securities to continue refining. My next steps are to input in the current price, S&P rating, M* evaluations, and price variance for the security. I'm not quite halfway through that task. Once I get done with that spreadsheet I'll go from there.-Ben
