    To Ferdie and the DollyLhama

    Been following your conversation which is quite helpful and appreciated. Wondering, Ferdie, if you ever consider preferreds on some of these Reits as an even safer play? And why? Thanks.

    • 44 years old and semi-retired. Too many years of retirement to take on heavy prefrd exposure with little to no increase in income over the coming years.

      That being said I have owned prfds in the past choosing to get in at or near peaks in interest rates. Now we are certainly closer to trough than peak so now would not be the time to get in.

      One regret I have is not jumping on lodging prfds immediately after 9/11. Depending on some of those yields and the outlook I may nibble there just a bit.
