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.

With credit markets going away, corporate bonds and fixed income type products like preferreds, their price goes in the opposite direction because of credit worries. The swing has gone too far and he actually likes preferreds now. You can now get very good tax efficient yields. He expects the spreads to tighten in the next short while and preferreds will benefit from this.

An index that represents a basket of preferred shares. You won't get the growth potential that you would with common shares. Similar to a bond but higher risk. Gives you a dividend tax credit.

Based on about 60 Canadian preferreds. MER of .045%. 50% to 60% are in perpetual preferred shares. Great long-term hold.

Has been dropping lately, mostly because of the BCE preferreds. Since March, 10-year Canada's are up about 40 basis points and 30-year are up about 25 or 30. Owning this one for income is fine.

ETF basket of preferred shares. Basically trades on interest rates with an average 4.5% dividend. You might consider iShares DJ (XDV-T) which have both preferred and common shares.
