Convertible Bond/Preferred Stock ETFs

Most of these ETFs invest in preferred bonds or stocks, which has a first claim on assets and earnings than common stocks. These securities make dividend payments, which are set at issuance, along with the par value of the preferred stock. Since preferred stock pays a consistent dividend, much like a bond, but has the possibility for appreciation, like stock, it works as a middle ground for conservative investors. The downside to owning both elements is that generally, preferred stock will not pay yields as great as a bond and will not appreciate as much as a stock. These ETFs are not intended to provide great growth within an investor's portfolio, but are designed to provide income and preserve the principal balance over the investor's estimated lifespan.
