As you all know we have many, many different lists on the site–everyone has a different need (or at least desire).
We have a listing titled “$25 Master List”. Previously it was simply a alphabetical listing of all issues we follow–around 630 in total (baby bonds, preferreds etc). We keep the permanent link on the preferred stock page.
If you click the link you get a spreadsheet that opens–you can make a copy or not–if you make a copy you become the person who gets to update your own sheet–if you just use it of course we update the sheet.
We have now added a ‘tab’ which you can find on the bottom of the spreadsheet titled ‘Investment Grade’. You can click this tab and and a list of investment grade issues will appear.
We continue to update credit ratings–it is a big job and we have found that the credit ratings on other sites do get out of date–it is inevitable as it is a big job. We have accounts at S&P and Moodys so we try to use the rating shown from their sites.
If either credit agency has an investment grade on the security we call the issue ‘investment grade’
