  • Preferred Stock As A Recognized Asset Class 6 comments
    Apr 3, 2012 10:25 PM
    I have a huge favor to ask any readers of this post. I, and other contributors, have been asking SA to add preferred stock as a distinct "tag" for articles. This would allow folks such as myself to see how we "place" in writing about preferred stocks as well as allow readers to sort articles to find those focused on preferreds.

    Drawing on Finding Nemo's famous battle cry "Swim Down!", perhaps if we all ask politely, the SA editors will see the value in this change.

    I think there is value in this all around.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Sounds like a winner, Mike.

     

    It's not like preferreds are simply $25 "mini-bonds", or granny's best friend (although sometimes they are). To understand a preferred the investor needs to understand the underlying company, the sector, the characteristics of that specific preferred, and the relationship with the overall debt market.
