Question: George comes to you asking for your advice He wants

George comes to you asking for your advice. He wants to invest $10,000 either in a debt security or in an equity investment. His choices are shown below.
• Redbreast Corporation bond, annual coupon rate of 7.50%.
• City of Philadelphia general obligation bond, coupon rate of 6.00%.
• Blue Corporation 7.50% preferred stock (produces qualified dividend income).
These alternatives are believed to carry comparable risk. Assuming that George is in the 35% marginal tax bracket, which investment alternative could be expected to produce the superior annual after-tax rate of return?
