    Shares With Credit Rating Pfd-3

    The following metrics are now only available on the premium version of this tool:

    1. Reset Date.
    2. Reset (Yield | Dividend). Represents the yield and dividend for the current issue after the upcoming reset. For this calculation it’s assumed the key rates are going to be the same as todays published rates. The reset yield is the sum of the key rate for the base term (5YR, 3Month, etc) plus the published spread. Since we do not know what the key rate will be at the time of the reset we assume its going to be the same as today. The ability to use a different set of rates during this caclulation is planned for a future release.
    3. Blended (Yield | Dividend).
    4. Rate Increase Percent.
    5. Rate Increase To Value.
    6. New Spread increase. It shows the effect or the current price on the issue spread of the preferred. It shows the percent increase/decrease of the new spread
    7. New Spread Value.
    8. Short Position.
    9. Additional Features.
    10. Years To Double Initial Investment. How many years will it take for the initial investment to double.
    11. Outstanding float.
    12. Market Cap In Bilions.
    13. Common Stock P/E Ratio.
