  2. 2C…the 6.5% Ready Capital notes performed well during the big down turn last fall, barely dipping below par. I never looked closely at their 7% notes because they seemed to pricey. I’ll likely be a buyer of their new notes when issued.

    1. XWords,
      ENR-A is certainly trading in lock-step with the common ENR. Since the IPO of ENR-A, it’s down about 15% and thus so is this convertible pfd. Glad I steered clear of this one. Unless the common turns around – this is going to be a tough one to SWAN with despite the good yield.

    2. This is an example of where a preferred has been designed with more attributes of a stock than a bond.

  3. Ready Capital is a small business lender which recently completed a merger with Owens Reality Mortgage, and in the process picked up an REO portfolio which they are quickly selling off. Properties include some luxury condos in the Lake Tahoe area. I own some of the 6.5% notes (RCP) and have been satisfied with their performance.

    1. CW, I also own some of these notes but have been lightening up on my position as I’m calculating yield to maturity at about 4.9% (assuming I’ve calculated correctly). I will be interested in seeing what the rate will be on the new notes.
      Having just driven back from Tahoe today I can vouch for the astonishingly high real estate prices there!
