Jim,

Much thanks for providing further background on the scope and intent of your post. You put a lot of thought into it, and it makes me want to dig into stocks a bit further. I can't help but think I'm missing out on opportunities by not exploring both the common and the debt of the companies whose bonds I'm buying.

You say: But I think there might be some even better deals in the preferred share area at the moment. I wholeheartedly agree. PFs aren't my area of interest/expertise. But there's a couple people on this board who know them well and are doing well with them.

Give me some time to reformat the spreadsheet on which I based my stock vs. bond comparisons, and I'll PM you a copy. I think you'll find the numbers interesting (and maybe even urge you to "cross over to the dark side").
