How to Search for, Identify and Analyze Investment Grade Preferred Stocks
I have just posted our first educational video on how to use the “I Prefer Income” program to search for, identify and analyze investment grade preferred stocks. I hope to provide similar videos each week. These videos will help our members to use the programs to locate the best income producing stocks, preferred stocks and ETD securities that meet their individual investment goals.
“I Prefer Income” focuses on income-producing stocks for individuals looking for “dividend growth”, “immediate income” or “high yield with dividend growth” investments. Our motto is “RELY ON YOURSELF INVESTING”. That means that we are not just about providing investment choices, but rather on helping investors discover how to use the IPI programs to find the investments that meet their own requirements and investment goals.
Today’s video will provide basic information on using the I Prefer Income Program and to demonstrate how to find a few good investment grade preferred stocks that you may want to consider adding to your portfolio. We ended up with 8 potential choices. Some familiar parent companies and a few that are not so familiar.
Before we go any further, what is a preferred stock?
A preferred stock is a stock that provides a “fixed income” to those who own the shares. That means that the dividend “does not” change. It is rated above the common stock if the company is liquidated and the yield is generally higher than the common stock and normally pays a monthly or quarterly fixed dividend. The preferred stocks that IPI includes in our database is comprised of traditional cumulative, non-cumulative preferred and trust preferred stocks with a call price of $25. At this time, we do not provide convertible preferred stocks.
