Hey Jack -

Thanks for chiming in with your analysis. Let me see if I can paraphrase to see if I understand. It looks like you:

1 - See if companies looks attractive as an investment generally from a fundamental perspective.

2 - Turn to the bond market to see how they compares with each other. That may generate an optimal choice, or it might make things murky.

3 - Depending on whether the common or the debt offers the better risk/reward tradeoff, pick one or the other but rarely both.

Did I get it? That all makes sense to me.
