HSBC Holdings PLC-American Depository Shares

Does this look like a low-risk investment and a good income generator? Of course the 2010 callable part makes it good for really 5 years, one could argue. The best 5 year CDs are still only giving 5+% yield right now.

Looks low risk from a credit perspective. However, note that this is a perpetual preferred, so if rates spike, you get killed.
