What Are High-Yield Bonds?
Our Skilled Securities Fraud Law Firm Can Help If You Have Suffered Junk Bond Losses
High-yield bonds, also known as junk bonds, are non-investment grade bonds. They are usually put out by issuers that have been given a low rating by credit rating agencies and are considered at risk of not paying interest or giving back an investor’s principal upon maturity. Examples of potential issuers are former investment-grade companies that are in financial trouble or are too highly leveraged and emerging companies looking for working capital to help with expansion.
