June PrefLetter Placeholder Released!

A placeholder, 2013, edition of PrefLetter has been released and is now available for purchase as the “Previous edition”. Those who subscribe for a full year receive the “Previous edition” as a bonus.

Placeholder? Yes, placeholder. At 3am on Saturday, just as I was putting the finishing touches to the monthly essay on FixedResets, my hard drive failed.

I am well aware that this month’s newsletter has been more eagerly anticipated than most, but I did not want to throw together a poor effort and pretend to readers that I think that sort of thing is acceptable. Thus, this edition of the newsletter is a placeholder; a proper edition will be put together next weekend, after the close on June 21 and delivered to subscribers prior to the opening on June 24. The recommendations are just as well researched as is usual, but instead of providing detailed commentary, I have adopted the style of many investment newsletters and said, essentially, ‘Buy this because it’s good.’ I trust readers will understand the reasoning behind this decision; note that there may be changes to the recommendations communicated next week based on market movements in the interim.

All subscribers who receive this placeholder will receive next week’s edition.Additionally, all Annual Subscribers will have their subscriptions extended by one issue.

PrefLetter may now be purchased by all Canadian residents.

Until further notice, the “Previous Edition” will refer to the Placeholder June, 2013, issue, while the “Next Edition” will be the Real June, 2013, issue, scheduled to be prepared as of the close June 21 and eMailed to subscribers prior to market-opening on June 24. Purchasers of either the “Next Edition” or the “Previous Edition” will receive both editions.

PrefLetter is intended for long term investors seeking issues to buy-and-hold. At least one recommendation from each of the major preferred share sectors is included and discussed.

Note: My verbosity has grown by such leaps and bounds that it is no longer possible to deliver PrefLetter as an eMail attachment – it’s just too big for my software! Instead, I have sent passwords – click on the link in your eMail and your copy will download.

Note: The PrefLetter website has a Subscriber Download Feature. If you have not received your copy, try it!

Note: PrefLetter eMails sometimes runs afoul of spam filters. If you have not received your copy within fifteen minutes of a release notice such as this one, please double check your (company’s) spam filtering policy and your spam repository – there are some hints in the post Sympatico Spam Filters out of Control. If it’s not there, contact me and I’ll get you your copy … somehow!

Note: There have been scattered complaints regarding inability to open PrefLetter in Acrobat Reader, despite my practice of including myself on the subscription list and immediately checking the copy received. I have had the occasional difficulty reading US Government documents, which I was able to resolve by downloading and installing the latest version of Adobe Reader. Also, note that so far, all complaints have been from users of Yahoo Mail. Try saving it to disk first, before attempting to open it.

Note: There have been other scattered complaints that double-clicking on the links in the “PrefLetter Download” email results in a message that the password has already been used. I have been able to reproduce this problem in my own eMail software … the problem is double-clicking. What happens is the first click opens the link and the second click finds that the password has already been used and refuses to work properly. So the moral of the story is: Don’t be a dick! Single Click!
