This article was written by Richard Hill / I Prefer Income

We are fortunate that there are articles written each week about preferred stocks and ETD securities from Seeking Alpha authors. There are so many securities in the marketplace that it is difficult to track and analyze them on a timely basis. Even though the “I Prefer Income website and database programs” provides a wealth of information about preferred stocks and other asset groups, it is great to have analysts write in-depth articles about companies and stocks that we might be interested in. Not only does it keep us informed, but it also helps us to learn how others analyze companies. One good thing about investing is that we can never learn enough.

With that said, if there are enough articles written during the week, I will recognize those articles and provide a link to the article with some key information from the IPI database that will allow the reader to review the stock in question. Table 1 displays the articles written, including the parent company, the issue, the author, the title and link to the article. Table 2 includes information and a few of the key metrics taken from the I Prefer Income database.

Preferred Stocks & ETD Securities

The following table includes key info and metrics on each parent company and each issue discussed in the articles

Preferred Stocks

(Table 2. Source, I Prefer Income)

To read the table properly, the parent company is in the top row with grey background. Each of the preferred stock issues are located directly underneath the parent row. All metrics are on the parent as they are responsible for the preferred stock. However, the credit ratings are on the preferred stock. The securities are grouped into 5 important financial areas: Earnings, Payout Ratios, Debt Ratios, Dividend Metrics and Credit Ratings. These metrics are highlighted with different colors and provide a great first review of the issues and lays the foundation for further analysis. Please note that there are 15 issues in the table. 12 are traditional cumulative preferred stocks, 2 are num-cumulative preferred stocks and 1 is an ETD or Baby Bond.
