About 2 weeks ago I posted this spreadsheet which is Investment Grade Preferreds and Baby Bonds Now Callable.
I am reposting–I did not update the dates as little changes over a 2 week period (although since the original post 6 issues have been called for redemption), BUT prices do change and I see a couple I don’t own that are in the list which I may pick up.
Currently I own the following off the list–
So I now see a couple others that I will look closer at for potential purchase.
1st is the DTE Energy 5.25% baby bond (DTQ).
2ndly is the Kimco Realty 5.50% preferred (KIM-J)
The idea is that if interest rates don’t move too violently up or down these issues should stay relatively closely tied to liquidation preference ($25) while providing high levels of safety. I don’t really want to deal with any issues under 5%, because the redemption likelihood is small thus exposing the issue to bigger share price moves (down).
Note that the yield to worst DOES NOT include accrued dividends so the actual yield to worst is slightly better than that listed.
