Writer comments are as follows:

1) This stock may be suitable for an investor who wants to receive monthly income

2) Oprf, the preferred stock, trades at about par value ($25), pays $.138 monthly to yield about 6.5%, and can be called in at par value by Realty Income at any time

3) An investor can a) receive an annual yield over 5% and a somewhat safe investment situation by purchasing equal dollar amounts of O and Oprf and b) participate in price appreciation of O if that occurs.
