Blurb- This book is designed to give the reader a deep understanding and thorough working knowledge and of all types of cumulative preferred, fixed income, equities, and how to make them a profitable and important part of your portfolio. To best accomplish this I have also sprinkled in a series of articles, I wrote as a Seeking Alpha contributor, that demonstrates practical applications of that knowledge. Ultimately, what I consider a most valuable resource will be the periodically updated preferred watch-list that includes a column populated with the yearly fixed-income dividend figures of each preferred listed.
Review- Norm takes a lot of information on preferred stocks and puts them all into one location. The book is written well, explained in a way that even an average investor is able to understand and profit from his recommendations.
If you’re buying this book as a learning tool for preferred stock investing, you will not be disappointed.
Review- Have been working with Norman for the last years during my efforts to re-structure my portfolio using preferreds. His book has been helpful to us in creating a strategy for this exercise. Thanks to his good suggestions, we have been having some success. He has always been available to answer any of my sometimes “beginners” questions, which makes us a little more confident with our changes. Thanks Norm for the wonderful work and we look forward to “collaborating at a distance” in the future.
Review- This book is fantastic if you want to invest your in preferred stock and achieve yields of 6%-12% with minimal risk of market changes that affect common stocks. Norm tells you how to evaluate preferred stocks and pick the ones right for you. As a bonus he provides a tip each week not published elsewhere to those that purchase his book. Some tips are for the conservative investor and some for those of us that can tolerate minimal risk. So far there have been 8 tips and I have invested a total of about $50,000 in 4 of them and have been very pleased with my purchases. I would have bought 2 more, but I waited too long to get them at the price I wanted. Thank you Norm and I can’t wait to see your next tip. This book is a true unbiased source of information.
