If it's too good to be true, is it always the case?

Why aren't we buying Fremont Pfd that's yielding 14% from an A rated company.

If you've read this message on another board, I apologize. I'm looking for wide enlightenment.

Thanks

The reason is that while it may be A rated, this sector may not provide the best return in the long run and I suspect that this is a REIT that must pass on all income in the form of dividends which are all taxed, as opposed to say Microsoft or Cisco that don't pay no stinkin' dividends.
