    Welcome back! I own NRF and its three preferreds. They have been a strong part of my portfolio this year. The new preferred, NRF-C is below par, has a longer maturity date and yields over 8.9%. Enjoy the holidays.

    The Motley Fool has become a bunch of dumbed-down garbage. I like to pretend they just don't even exist.

    Patrick nailed it. When I inadvertantly click on a Fool link, I immediately exit without reading. It is dumbed-down and I can't afford to get any dumber. It seems that most of the MF authors use templates into which they just plug different tickers over and over.


    No thought involved, just assembly line drivel.
