    AGNCP - What are the disadvantages?

    mr.phil2u, My personal prefy portfolio in terms of dividend is decreasing as well for it's yield.
    Nothing we can do about it.
    Banks are buying back the fat paying prefy's they issued back in the 2008 crash.
    I have Barclays D and BofA Q that will probably get called this summer, and that will be two more fat cows gone.

    I'm fully expecting a continual decline in the dividend.
    Actually FFC is a bit mis-leading on google.
    Their last dividend was .12 which puts them at a 7.23% yield.
    So they just cut from .14 a month to .12 a month.

    Anyway just pointing out there are prefy funds if you didn't want to be exposed to one company only and feel more comfortable in a diversified fund.

    • BML.Q is a heart breaker , I own a ton at $24.50 thats going to mean a major re-investment plan for me.

      • Ye same here Onion and I have a decent chunk of Barclays BCS-D which can be called on/after 6/15/2013.

        I picked up some PFF (iShares S&P US Pref Stock Idx Fnd) in my self directed 401k.
        Yields around 5.6% - 5.7%.
        Not quite the 8% we get from BML-Q

        The other prefy funds I track are FFC and PGF.
        You can try those.

        These are some other bank related ones that might be ok just because they are not so dam pricy.
        Citibank, JP Morgan, and HSBC
        The Citi and JPM have just been running past their call date.
        Hopefully it will stay that way. : )

        C-V 7.13% $1.78125
        Call 2006 / Mature 2032

        JPM-J 7.00% $1.75
        Call 2007 / Mature 2032

        HCS 8.13% $2.03125
        CALL DATE?? NOT SURE? QUANTUM HAS 4/15/13??
        So if you buy this, it's possible it might get called soon.
