  1. RILY preferreds were a tough sell at 7+%. The risk isn’t any lower now. They’re trying to take advantage of the yield seekers.

  2. I own one of their bonds right now. but looking at their common stock.
    Boy has it tanked this year.
    Now selling at $3.55 down about 2 bucks this year. Nice percentage drop.
    makes me wonder if I should get rid of what I own as well
