    Preferreds Up Big aGAIN TODAY!!!

    7. FMCKJ and liquidity of the preferreds

    FMCKJ is generally viewed as the most liquid of the preferreds. 240,000,000 shares were issued circa late 2007, I believe.

    Thus, FMCKJ is pretty easy to buy, not a wide bid-ask spread, etc. But its a bit price-y so FLCKI and FLCKL might be options if you are in a hurry to build a basic position.

    There was a stockholder suit re FMCKJ but I believe that that suit failed (FHFA as conservator told the Court that Freddie Mac had met its disclosure requirements, when the FMCKJ shares were issued). But, I'm not a lawyer.

    The $50s tend to be cheaper but harder to buy. Not to say that you can't build positions in them, but one would need to be patient.

    One place to pull market data is here

    Provides quite a bit of info re depth and so on. But, I'm not a trader so take that with a grain of salt.
