Preferred Share Newsletter?

In response to enquiries, I am considering offering a regular monthly newsletter regarding Canadian Preferred Shares on a subscription basis.

I haven’t decided on any of the details of such a newsletter yet, but my initial thoughts are for something about four pages long:

  • a page of prose and general tables that will attempt to communicate an overall description of the market over the preceeding month
  • three or four pages of recommendations … four recommendations per page, with a standardized table showing the characteristics of the issue, a chart and a paragraph regarding the reasoning behind the recommendation. There would be at least one recommendation per class of preferred share (classes defined in accordance with the HIMI Indices though Ratchet / Fixed Floater / Floater would be combined)
  • A “Chart of the Month”

Pricing has not yet been determined. 

If there is anything you would like to see in such a newsletter, please let me know. You can either comment on this post or send me an eMail.

    Sounds interesting.

    Will this newsletter cater more to users of HIMIPref™Analytical Software and or owners of Malachite Aggressive Preferred Fund, or will it be geared more toward the DIY investor who purchases their own preferred shares?

    It will be geared towards people who don’t want a lot of details with their recommendations, just the straight buy/sell/hold recommendation. There will certainly be enough information provided so that subscribers will be able to understand the basics, but not the sort of full-blown megabyte-of-data justification that is provided via HIMIPref.

    In other words, basically similar to other investment newsletters!
