Course description:   Get up to speed on preferred stocks by taking this deep dive training class. At any point in time, there are around 500 to 550 preferred stocks that trade on U.S. stock exchanges. But preferred stocks are not always well-understood. As a "deep dive" class, this class consists of some introductory reading, but then mostly consists of you studying actual securities. We give you easy to use online tools that will allow you to quickly and easily study all 500 or so preferred stocks currently on the market. We also have you study closed-end funds and ETFs that buy preferred securities.

Prerequisites:   We do not assume you have previous knowledge of preferred stocks. A good basic understanding of how the stock market works is recommended. This course will benefit both beginning investors as well as experienced pros.

Recommended Way To Take The Class:    It is an online class, which gives you the flexibility to take the class however you can, whenever you can. Our suggestion is to try to find solid blocks of time of at least two or three hours where you can focus on the class. Better yet, set aside an entire day to taking the class, so that you really focus, and "dig in".

To Complete The Course:   You must pass our online exam with a score of at least 70%.
