Preferred Security Screener

Screener consists of 2 tables: the first lets you select Screening Criteria, the second displays results and updates them automatically as you add criteria. To begin, select from among simple, expert, or any previously saved screens. Or, start a new screen either by typing criteria into the Type Criteria Here field, or by selecting one or multiple criteria from the Select Criteria menu. The screener dynamically adds new fields for each criterion you choose. These fields let you specify values for each criterion. As you add data, the screener tallies the number of results that match each criterion, and the number of results that match all criteria. The Total Results matching all criteria section also lets you customize how these results display.

Preferred securities are subject to interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, preferred securities prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Preferred securities also have credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties, liquidity risk, and if callable, call risk. Dividend or interest payments on preferred securities may be variable, suspended or deferred by the issuer at any time, and missed or deferred payments may not be paid at a future date. If payments are suspended or deferred by the issuer, the deferred income may still be taxable. See your tax advisor for more details. Most Preferred securities have call features which allow the issuer to redeem the securities at its discretion on specified dates as well as upon the occurrence of certain events. Other early redemption provisions may exist which could affect yield. Certain preferred securities are convertible into common stock of the issuer, therefore, their market prices can be sensitive to changes in the value of the issuer's common stock. Some preferred securities are perpetual, meaning they have no stated maturity date. In the case of preferred securities with a stated maturity date, the issuer may, under certain circumstances, extend this date at its discretion. Extension of maturity date would delay repayment of principal on the securities. Please read the prospectus, which may be located on the SEC's EDGAR system, to understand the terms, conditions and specific features of the security prior to investing.
