My list of preferred stocks is here--

Most of the investment quality ones are now priced at a premium over their call price. That makes them risky investments. Many of the better ones have been called--now that low interest rates makes alternative financing easily available to many issuers.

So I would suggest that one needs to be very selective. Dividend paying stocks are probably safer.
