    It's possible, yes. However, AHT preferred dividends have sometimes been classified as return of capital, meaning totally untaxed.

    Little to no risk of it being called.

    A thoughtful and intelligent post. I don't entirely disagree, but I still see better places for those ONLY interested in the dividend. You speak to issues that could well move the stock itself.

    Thank you for your thoughts and addition to the discussion.

    I don't think Verizon has preferred stock, but it does have exchange traded debt, which I wrote about here:

    I think this is an excellent alternative. For starters, debt is higher in the capital stack than the common, so should a disaster befall T, you are screwed, whereas with VZ, you have a better chance of recouping your investment.

    As stated, I believe that if you are in T stock ONLY for the dividend, that there are alternatives. Your choice pays more, although it is taxed as ordinary income, so it is better off in a retirement account.

    THIS is an intelligent comment from an intelligent poster. Perhaps those people whom I've reported as abusive can take note and elevate the discussion.

    John,

    What is your thesis as to why I should do that?

    Sir, it is public knowledge that SA writers are paid a penny per click. Has it occurred to you that such a rate would hardly be worth the effort to generate a few dollars, which is all it usually adds up to, to meet a fictional "agenda"?

    Perhaps, if you take issue with the thesis, you can argue a counter-thesis that would be useful to the reading audience. Otherwise, please refrain from such un-civil discourse.

    It's a roll of the dice. Some preferreds report distributions as non taxable return of capital, but you don't know until year end.

    That sounds grand. Please support this assertion with some evidence so I can better understand your point.
