The $6 TRILLION Corporate Debt Implosion Begins... / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Graham_Summers

The corporate bond market is a $6 trillion time bomb waiting to go off.

It took the US half a century to grow its corporate bond market to $3 trillion.

Thanks to the Fed implementing ZIRP and holding rates there for seven years, we’ve doubled the corporate bond market, adding another $3 trillion in corporate debt… since 2009.

Junk Bonds... Here we go again! / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

MUT is making all-time new highs as this rally sucks in more gullible investors into junk bonds. As I have said before, MUT is the “cream of the crop.” Investors in this index have fared better than in most junk bond funds.

The sad part about this is that MUT is on a similar Cycle pattern as SPX. In other words, it may be about to join SPX in a panic Cycle decline next week.

The Bond Bubble Has Begun Bursting / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Graham_Summers

The bursting of the bond bubble has begun.

As I’ve outlined previously the primary concern for Central Banks is the bond bubble. CNBC and other financial media focus on stocks because the asset class is more volatile and so makes for better content, but the foundation of the financial system is bonds. And bonds are THE focus for Central Banks.

Junk Rhymes with Subprime / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Michael_Pento

On December 16th 2008, in what Ben Bernanke averred took a tremendous amount of "moral courage", the Federal Reserve officially arrived at its Zero Interest Rate Policy. ZIRP was a huge win for borrowers because it drove down the carrying cost of debt to historic lows. Unfortunately, savers didn't fare as well.

A 'Witch's Brew' Bubbling in Bond Market ETFs / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Gordon_T_Long

We believe the Credit Cycle has turned and with it will come some massive unexpected shocks. One of these will be the fall out in the Bond Market, centered around the dramatic growth explosion in Bond ETFs coupled with the post financial crisis regulatory changes that effectively removed banks from making markets in corporate bonds. It is a 'Witch's Brew' with a flattening yield curve bringing it to a boil.

Soaring Bond Yields - This Is How Fast It Happens / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Raul_I_Meijer

For a while there, companies deemed to be highly risky were nonetheless able to borrow money for less than 6%. And borrow they did. Frackers, ultra-high-leverage retail chains and various other close-to-the-edge entities slurped up trillions from yield-starved investors who had forgotten about the other side of the risk/return equation.

Using Put Options to Bet on a Junk-Bond Crash / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Submissions

Rick Ackerman writes: Here’s an easy play for those who have never cashed a winning ticket trading put or call options. Specifically, I am going to tell you how to bet on a junk-bond crash without risking your shirt — even if junk bonds continue to defy gravity indefinitely. First, let me assert that straight-up directional plays with stock options almost never win. Your odds are better trying to predict precisely when a shooting star will flash across the night sky. Similarly, if you buy call options with the expectation that a stock is about to surge, your timing had better be perfect, since the options you’ll be buying will be priced to discount any such event. Indeed, to make money on the calls, the move in the underlying vehicle would need to be so steep as to lie well outside the stock’s historical behavior.  Moreover, as implied above, you would need to initiate the trade just before the rally takes off, since, if you get in early, time decay will sap the value of your calls quickly. And you can forget about getting aboard after the rally has begun, since option prices will be goosed into the stratosphere mere minutes after the stock lurches higher.

Floating-Rate Funds Poised to Profit as Interest Rates Rise / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Casey_Research

By Andrey Dashkov

Money can’t be this cheap forever. In other words, one of the most likely scenarios the US economy faces is rising interest rates. The current low-interest-rate climate is simply unsustainable. At some point—as it always does—the trend will turn around. We want to be prepared for that turn, and the right floating-rate fund can help.

How to Find Junk Bonds That Don’t Stink / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Casey_Research

By Andrey Dashkov, Research Analyst

Riddle me this: Why would anyone ever buy junk bonds or a junk bond fund? Before we get to the answer, I would like to point something out that seems to be a given, but that astonishingly few investors think about: bonds are debt instruments, so investing in bonds means investing in debt, governmental or corporate.

How to Get Higher Interest Rates on Safer Bonds / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Investment_U

Steve McDonald writes: The bond market is a difficult place to earn a livable income during times of very low interest rates. The only way to earn a decent yield is to take risks on lower-quality bonds or to accept much longer maturity curves than good sense dictates.

But if you know where to look, there’s a virtually unknown feature in some bonds that can significantly increase your current income and beat the biggest threat to your money in the current bond market, while offering the increased level of safety that bonds are known for.

Hedge Funds Are Pouring Into Distressed Debt / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

Greg Madison writes: Regulators have demanded that banks stop engaging in so much risky behavior - chiefly, distressed debt investing. And the banks have begun to curtail this type of investing.

But this has led to an unprecedented - though not unpredictable - situation: It seems the hedge funds are picking up the slack.

David Fessler writes: There was big news from Apple this week. And investors are eager to uncover exactly what it means and… most important… how to play the situation. The strategy is simple.

On the latest Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) earnings call, Tim Cook announced that the existing share buyback program would be increased to $60 billion from the original $10 billion. The company has ample cash flow to support the increase, but Apple chose a different route. It’s diving into the debt market.

A New Strategy for High Income Investing With Ultra-Low Risk / Interest-Rates / Corporate Bonds

By: Investment_U

Steve McDonald writes: The Wall Street Journal recently ran a segment about a fund that’s trading high-yield corporate bonds with virtually no risk! All compliments of a fold in the bond market that has been staring at us for the last hundred years – and no one noticed it.

This type of corporate bond is essentially pre-refunded. That means the money to buy the bonds back is already set aside, and the buyback date is already set – in some cases in as little as a week.

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.

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.
