Compare Insurance Preferred Shares Process

Each investor has a unique selection process and looks at the same metric differently.

  1. Some investors looking for high yield over the next 5 years will put more emphasis on the “Blended Yield” metric.
  2. More weight should be given to the “Rating” metric if you are looking for the highest credit worthy issues.
  3. Good value is indicated by metric “Rate increase percent”.  This also highlights the stocks with the most room for capital gains if rates start going up.

Conclusion

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.

Two tables are provided here. Review both, since the information provided contributes to the selection process.
