S&P/TSX Preferred ETF. Is there protection from falling markets? He doesn't do much with preferreds although it is a very valid asset class. Preferreds don't give you upside but give you downside if rates go up. If it's a small portion of your portfolio, there's nothing wrong with it.

S&P/TSX Preferred ETF. Good and stable. Not as sexy as some others.

S&P/TSX Preferred ETF gives you preferential treatment of tax dividends. On an absolute yield basis, the preferred share market, which is dominated by the banks, has higher yields then corporate bonds.

S&P/TSX Preferred ETF. When buying preferred shares ETFs be sure they are in a non-registered account or else you lose the benefit of the dividend tax credit. This is the Canadian market leader and gives you broad diversification in preferred shares.

You should buy this for the yield and not for the price of the stock. There’s nothing wrong with the preferreds.

ETF that invests across Canadian preferred shares. Preferreds are attractive because of the tax efficiency of the dividend. Last year, spreads widened considerably so there was a big dip earlier this year but have now come back very nicely. Long-term, preferreds are fantastic for dividends but will not give you huge returns. Doesn't expect they will give you more than 5%-7% long-term. Wouldn't use in a registered account.

S&P/TSX Preferred ETF. Likes preferred shares. Yield of 5.75%. If you are looking for an income component in your portfolio, preferred shares are still undervalued compared to 10-year corporate bonds.

Based on the S&P/TSX preferred share index. While diversified. A nice way to get liquid exposure. Yield is probably in the 5.5%-6% area.
