Below we list all regular (traditional) $25 preferred stocks—virtually all are perpetual preferreds but we have included term preferreds as well. We have not included trust preferreds.
For our purposes we want to know which preferred share is taking a large loss at any given time—it may indicate a large seller has moved in to the marketplace and there may be a quick bargain available–or it may simply be a 100 share traded that was entered as a ‘market’ order. Because it simply may be a super illiquid trade we have added volume to the list.
You can ‘toggle’ from Alpha to Losers on the top of the spreadsheet.
If you see one that looks like a potential buy you can click on the ticker and look at the issue chart.
NOTE–ON EX DIVIDEND DATE GOOGLE QUOTES DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE EX DATE AND THUS THE GAIN OR LOSS IS THE TOTAL OF THE EX AMOUNT AND ANY CHANGE FOR THAT DAY.
