    RAS=C back to par

    Now trading at $25.00, exactly at face value.
    How many sold at a premium, while they could?
    pretty much any day this year, up to the end of August, except for a little hiccup for about a week back in June

    • RAS Preferred shares "face" yields:
      Preferred A 7.75%
      Preferred B 8.375%
      Preferred C 8.875%

      I believe RAS can raise money for a lot less than 7.75%, for quite a while yet going forward.

      Today's Treasury auctions were all well within the anticipated range of 2 to 3%.
      Here's just one (typical) example:
