A good stock brokerage account will tell all these figures easily and accurately.  add a comment

So it is predictable and can be calculatable. You need the par value, the preferred dividend rate, calculate the preferred dividend, get the yield.

Just to add on. Par value is the claim of the preferred stockholder against the value of the firm.  add a comment
