HSBC Preferred Stock Pushes Past a 6% Yield

Posted by D4L | Friday, April 03, 2015 | | 0 comments »

In trading recently, HSBC Holdings plc (ADR) (NYSE:HSBC) stock’s 6.2% Non-Cumulative Dollar Preference Shares, Series A was yielding above the 6% mark based on its quarterly dividend (annualized to $1.55), with shares changing hands as low as $25.83 on the day. This compares to an average yield of 5.69% in the “Banking & Savings” preferred stock category, according to Preferred Stock Channel.

As of last close, HSBC preferreds were trading at a 3.92% premium to its liquidation preference amount, versus the average discount of 2.39% in the “Banking & Savings” category. Investors should keep in mind that the shares are not cumulative, meaning that in the event of a missed payment, HSBC does not have to pay the balance of missed dividends to preferred shareholders before resuming a common dividend.
