Compare Minimum Rate Reset Preferred Shares Process
This type of asset within the preferred share world is, in a way, unique. It offers the safety of a perpetual by providing a minimum fixed yield.
- Just like a perpetual you are guaranteed a set dividend. In this case the dividend is a minimum set at issue time. You can rest assured that no matter what the rate, you are going to receive the mimimum guaranteed dividend. In other words, your downside is defined and you can plan accordingly.
- Similar to a reset, it offers protection against inflation. If rates go up to the point where the 5Yr plus the spread exceeds the minimum, you will end up getting the higher yield. This is a great way to participate to the upside when interest rates move up.
I feel this type of share is one where you buy and forget. No matter what happens with interest rates you end up getting a fair deal at reset.
Sort the table on column “Fixed Rate Base” for easier parsing of the data. Check the Minimum rate and the spread over the 5Yr rate. Use “New Spread (%Increase | value)” to find the discount / premium currently assigned to it.
We expect each investor to review the various metrics, and make a determination on the totality of their values. While at the same time expressing their personal investing style. In other words we present you with the information and you make a choice you are comfortable with.
