Glossary Term: CORPORATE BONDS

Definition(s) for CORPORATE BONDS:


1. ) refers to a debt instrument issued by a private or public corporation. Corporate bonds are rated by Standard & Poor's, Moody's and other credit rating agencies. They assign ratings based on a company's perceived ability to pay its debts over time. Those ratings, expressed as letters (AAA, AA, A, etc.), help determine the interest rate that company or government has to pay. A bond with a rating below BBB is considered a high yield or 'junk' bond. Such bonds pay higher interest rates but have greater risk of default. Corporate bonds have historically been viewed as safer investments than stocks. The main reason for this is the prior claim corporate bond holders have on a company's earnings and assets.

2. ) Bonds issued by a company.
