An ETF of companies that regularly buy back their stock? There are a few of them, but he finds this kind of thing a little bit niche. SPDR S&P 500 Buyback (SPYB-N) is one. Doesn’t find anything particularly wrong with this and there is some evidence that this works as a strategy.

European banks. Just read an article that said if you look at the charts of European banks, you will see that the canaries are fleeing the mines. This is not something he is particularly interested in right now.

Preferreds got really clobbered this year, and are down about 24% on the year. A lot of institutions were buying them because they were representing pretty good value and paying about 6%. Has bought a little bit for some clients that were looking for yield. Doesn’t particularly like preferreds because you are basically exchanging the yield of a bond with the risk of a stock.
