Dividends4Life: Highest Rated S&P Preferred Stocks

Highest Rated S&P Preferred Stocks

Preferred stocks are stock-bond hybrids. They are issued like stock and trade on the stock exchanges, but trade more like bonds and have high yields that are comparable to junk bonds. But preferred stock is usually much safer than junk bonds. The word “junk” refers to bonds that are assigned ratings by S&P and Moody’s that indicate they are “less than investment grade.” That means the businesses they are lent against have ongoing uncertainties that may be related to various factors involving the economy, its sector, or the business itself.

Often, the high yields of preferred stocks are greater than or equal to those of junk bonds and carry less risk. That’s why I like preferred stock. Here are the top three rated preferred stocks. Let’s look at them and the underlying businesses to see if they might be right for your portfolio: Wells Fargo (WFC), US Bancorp (USB) and Public Storage (PSA).
