I don't really have any interest in a $1.18B market cap REIT that hasn't grown its dividend since 3Q16. Revenue's are not showing a very good progression....

However, this may be an ideal preferred. Not-too-healthy but sound-base financials with a so-so share price history is often a great preferred stock. RPT-D's non-redeemable convertible preferred is selling at a $8.88 premium to its $50 issue price but is yielding 6.1%, which is not bad considering today's yield climate. The only other issue I think I'd look at (but haven't) is the conditions for conversion. But assuming this doesn't look like a conversion anytime soon, you could do a lot worse with a 6%+ current yield.
