    More supply shrinkage and a reminder that overpaying for the minimum at reset is a fools errand.

    And what a difference between the two Reset preferreds just mentioned…. Just look the rates between ALA.PR.I and GWO.PR.N !!!

    It will be a long time before GWO.PR.N gets redeemed at par, if ever…..
