No. of Recommendations: 0
I am using the Quantumonline web site to find some preferred stocks to invest in. I've gone to the section listing investment grade prfds that are eligible for the 15% tax rate.

This is my first time doing this. Anyone have any tips on what not to do, and what to do. Obviously trying to find high yield and high credit rating makes sense.

But what other parameters should one use to make a selection. There are a few hundred stocks listed there, and I need to have some sort of screening process. And, of course when the yield is high, they are ususally trading at a premium, reducing the yield. But, that's life. Anyone have any favorites they would recommend.

Thanks is advance.
Henry
