First Trust's new actively managed Preferred Securities and Income ETF FPE began trading Tuesday. FPE tries to generate income through holding preferred securities and income-producing debt securities, such as corporate bonds, high-yield securities and convertibles. This gives investors yield-generating options as an alternative route to the low interest rates in Treasury bonds. FPE comes with a high expense ratio of 0.85% compared to PFF (0.48%), PFXF (0.40%), SPFF (0.58%), PSK (0.45%), PGX (0.50%) and IPFF (0.55%). (PR)

    In February 2012 we added PFF to our portfolio and added PFXF after it became available in August. Based on our cost, both have delivered yields of just over 6% with some appreciation of value.

     

    We are completely satisfied with the performance of both ETFs - so far!
