It seems both of us are wrong. Most divs paid by pfds aren't qualified

Really? How do you define 'most'? Because when I look at Quantumonline's table of all preferred stocks https://www.quantumonline.com/pfdtable.cfm?Type=AllPfds&... there are 335 issues that say they are not eligible for the 15% rate vs. 469 that say they are eligible for the 15% rate. That's 58.33%, which rates as "most" in my book.

the diff between an ord income rate of 22% and 25% isn't material

Except it's more likely to be a 15% (or 0%) rate, depending on your income. That is material.
