VRP Vs. PFF: Choice Comes Down To Outlook On Rates
iShares Preferred and Income Securities ETF is the dominant preferred ETF with over $12.76 billion in assets under management. The Invesco Variable Rate Preferred ETF could be getting more attention due to its floating rate exposure that shows less sensitivity to rising interest rates. Both had seen their yields start to rise, but some of those gains for PFF have been reversing more recently, while VRP's payout has continued to rise.
iShares Preferred And Income ETF: Long-Term Loser On Income And Price
Preferred stocks offer higher dividend yields than common stocks, with yields of 4%, 6%, or even higher. The iShares Preferred and Income Securities ETF provides monthly dividend payouts, but its performance and dividend income have declined over time. Investing in PFF may not be a successful option for growth or income, especially for retirees on a fixed income.

PFF: The Preferred Choice For Income Now And Capital Appreciation Potential Later
iShares Preferred and Income Securities ETF offers investors exposure to US preferred stocks, with a 30-day SEC yield of around 6.6% and a focus on high income. The ETF is heavily concentrated in the financial sector, with 75% of its holdings in this area, but I believe the risk of another banking crisis is low. Despite some holdings having low credit ratings, I rate PFF a Buy due to its high income and potential capital appreciation.
The Fundamental Problem With Preferred Shares And PFF
Preferred shares and PFF often attract investors due to their yields and attachment to blue chip names, but the implications of perpetual securities are often overlooked. Preferred shares lack the protections and structure of fixed income and are sold largely to retail investors, but it is usually the issuer who benefits most. The asymmetric return distribution of newly issued preferred shares make them not worth the risk for low return.
