Corporate Bond Spreads Match 2007 Market Highs / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Tony_Pallotta

Corporate bond spreads or the difference between investment grade (Aaa rated) and high yield (Bbb rated) are currently 80 basis points. They last reached these low levels in October 2007 at 79 basis points.

When this spread comes down to such low levels it signals an overbought corporate bond market as high yield debt no longer lives up to its name. Similar to the "dash for trash" in equity tops.

Will QE2 Go Corporate? / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Our friends on the bond markets have put their money where their mouths are with huge positions made in the past few weeks on short term government debt, demonstrating the likeliness that the Federal Reserve will force quantitative easing round two and buy up billions—maybe trillions—of dollars of debt.

Is it Safe to buy BP Junk Bonds? / Companies / Corporate Bonds

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor fixed income investors, who seek a steady cash inflow from bonds, either to supplement their income, or to subsidize their retirement, - these are the worst of times. The so-called “risk-free” rate of return on money market deposits, or those of FDIC insured bank CD’s in the United States are offering a razor thin 7-basis points. Worse yet, the Federal Reserve might be a year away, before it has the courage to begin lifting short-term interest rates to more “normal” levels.

Junk Bond Defaults Worst Since Great Depression, Why Is the Stock Market Rallying? / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNumerous people have asked for an update to Corporate Bond Spreads Key To Continued S&P Rally.

Specifically, inquiring minds are interested in my statement "It will pay to keep one eye on the credit markets to help ascertain long-term equity direction. In August of 2007 the corporate bond market cracked wide open. Although the S&P 500 made a new high in November, the corporate bond market didn't. It was the mother of all warning calls that most missed."

Hedge Funds Profit from Ratings Agencies AAA Rated Junk Bonds / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: John_Mauldin

  • Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnintended Consequences
  • The I-Factor
  • Rating Agencies Gone Wild

Rules have consequences. And sometimes they have unintended consequences. If I told you that the US government was going to give multiple tens of billions of taxpayer dollars to hedge funds and private investors, you would justifiably not be happy. I think the word angry would come to mind. But that is exactly what is happening, as a result of rules that were written for a time and place seemingly long ago and far, far away. Further, we are looking at potentially much larger sums being lost in the bank bailout (can we say hundreds of billions?), a reduced lending capacity at banks and, in general, a worsening of the very problems at the core of the crisis.

Investment Strategy Favours Corporate Bonds / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe worst employment report in well over a decade and the market jumps nearly 3% - could stocks be whistling past the graveyard or is there something more that we're missing? To be sure the news is bad and is going to be bad for the next couple of months as the reports are referencing the worst part of the severe recession. Job cuts seem to go hand in hand with earnings reports, housing remains dormant and even new home construction is well below “replacement” rates.

Bullish Pattern for Corporate Bond LQD ETF / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy technical work in the iShares Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) is very constructive, and points still higher on an intermediate term basis. My near term work has pivoted to the upside after a pullback from the 102.60 high on 1/09 into yest.'s low at 97.32. Why? Mr. Market perceives that there is "value" and relative safety in the corporate bond sector compared with the excess-supply, debt-beleaguered sovereign (US) Treasury sector.

U.S. Corporate Bonds Show Recovery Progress / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeveral US bonds types have mostly recovered from the steep losses of October.  The differences in recovery generally correspond to the position of the bonds in the capital structure, or to credit quality.
