What is CORPORATE BOND? What does CORPORATE BOND mean? CORPORATE BOND meaning & explanation
What is CORPORATE BOND? What does CORPORATE BOND mean? CORPORATE BOND meaning - CORPORATE BOND definition - CORPORATE BOND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A corporate bond is a bond issued by a corporation in order to raise financing for a variety of reasons such as to ongoing operations, M&A, or to expand business. The term is usually applied to longer-term debt instruments, with maturity of at least one year. Corporate debt instruments with maturity shorter than one year are referred to as commercial paper. The term "corporate bond" is not strictly defined. Sometimes, the term is used to include all bonds except those issued by governments in their own currencies. In this case governments issuing in other currencies (such as the country of Mexico issuing in US dollars) will be included. The term sometimes also encompasses bonds issued by supranational organizations (such as European Bank for Reconstruction and Development). Strictly speaking, however, it only applies to those issued by corporations. The bonds of local authorities (municipal bonds) are not included. Corporate bonds trade in decentralized, dealer-based, over-the-counter markets. In over-the-counter trading dealers act as intermediaries between buyers and sellers. Corporate bonds are sometimes listed on exchanges (these are called "listed" bonds) and ECNs. However, vast majority of trading volume happens over-the-counter. By far the largest market for corporate bonds is in corporate bonds denominated in US Dollars. US Dollar corporate bond market is the oldest, largest, and most developed. As the term corporate bond is not well defined, the size of the market varies according to who is doing the counting, but it is in the $5 to $6 trillion range. The second largest market is in Euro denominated corporate bonds. Other markets tend to be small by comparison and are usually not well developed, with low trading volumes. Many corporations from other countries issue in either US Dollars or Euros. Foreign corporates issuing bonds in the US Dollar market are called Yankees and their bonds are Yankee bonds. Corporate bonds are divided into two main categories High Grade (also called Investment Grade) and High Yield (also called Non-Investment Grade, Speculative Grade, or Junk Bonds) according to their credit rating. Bonds rated AAA, AA, A, and BBB are High Grade, while bonds rated BB and below are High Yield. This is a significant distinction as High Grade and High Yield bonds are traded by different trading desks and held by different investors. For example, many pension funds and insurance companies are prohibited from holding more than a token amount of High Yield bonds (by internal rules or government regulation). The distinction between High Grade and High Yield is also common to most corporate bond markets. The coupon (i.e. interest payment) is usually taxable for the investor. It is tax deductible for the corporation paying it. For US Dollar corporates, the coupon is almost always semi annual, while Euro denominated corporates pay coupon quarterly. The coupon can be zero. In this case the bond, a zero-coupon bond, is sold at a discount (i.e. a $100 face value bond sold initially for $80). The investor benefits by paying $80, but collecting $100 at maturity. The $20 gain (ignoring time value of money) is in lieu of the regular coupon. However, this is rare for corporate bonds. Some corporate bonds have an embedded call option that allows the issuer to redeem the debt before its maturity date. These are called callable bonds. A less common feature is an embedded put option that allows investors to put the bond back to the issuer before its maturity date. These are called putable bonds. Both of these features are common to the High Yield market. High Grade bonds rarely have embedded options. A straight bond that is neither callable nor putable is called a bullet bond.

Explaining Bond Prices and Bond Yields
​In this revision video we work through some numerical examples of the inverse relationship between the market price of fixed-interest government bonds and the yields on those bonds. ​Government bonds are fixed interest securities. This means that a bond pays a fixed annual interest – this is known as the coupon The coupon (paid in £s, $s, Euros etc.) is fixed but the yield on a bond will vary The yield is effectively the interest rate on a bond. The yield will vary inversely with the market price of a bond 1.When bond prices are rising, the yield will fall 2.When bond prices are falling, the yield will rise - - - - - - - - - MORE ABOUT TUTOR2U ECONOMICS: Visit tutor2u Economics for thousands of free study notes, videos, quizzes and more: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics A Level Economics Revision Flashcards: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/alevel-economics-revision-flashcards A Level Economics Example Top Grade Essays: https://www.tutor2u.net/economics/store/selections/exemplar-essays-for-a-level-economics

Top 3 Investment-Grade Corporate Bond ETFs
https://goo.gl/QPCkqk - Start earning with binary options like millions of traders do Depending on your stage of life or the asset allocation in your portfolio, bonds may be a solid choice to provide fixed-income stability and a hedge against more risky equity investments. (See also: 6 Asset Allocation Strategies That Work.) Interest rates have been historically low for many years, making the gold standard, U.S. treasuries, less attractive. That's where investment-grade corporate bonds come in. Corporate bonds offer significantly higher yield in many cases, without an equally significant bump in risk. Yes, corporations do go bankrupt on rare occasions, but investment-grade bonds focus on companies with excellent credit ratings and very low risk of default. (See also: How to Invest in Corporate Bonds.) The problem is that picking institutional bonds is a skill best left to experts, and their fees can easily gobble up gains. Fortunately, there are a number of high-quality investment-grade corporate bond exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that are comparatively inexpensive and highly liquid. You also avoid the market-timing mistakes that so commonly befall amateur investors. Most investors should view bonds and bond ETFs as a strategic asset – a buy-and-hold investment that serves a specific purpose in their overall asset allocation. (See also: Evaluating Bond Funds: Keep It Simple.) If you're looking for a few good corporate bond options to round out your portfolio, here are a few ETFs that rise above their peers. All year-to-date (YTD) performance figures are based on the period of Jan. 1, 2017, through July 14, 2017, unless otherwise noted. Funds were selected on the basis of a combination of assets under management (AUM) and overall performance. All figures are as of July 15, 2017. iShares iBoxx $ Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF (LQD) Issuer: BlackRock Assets Under Management: $36 billion YTD Performance: 4.52% Expense Ratio: 0.15% This is the largest of the corporate bond ETFs and has returned nearly 5.56% since its inception in 2002. The fund tracks the Markit iBoxx USD Liquid Investment Grade Index, investing roughly 90% of its assets into securities in the index, with the balance in cash funds. There are currently 1,691 holdings, heavily tilted toward the banking and consumer non-cyclical sectors. Top issuers include JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) and The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (GS). LQD's low expense ratio and solid performance figures make it an attractive choice. One-year, three-year and five-year returns are 0.28%, 3.72% and 3.68%, respectively. (See also: Don't Doubt the Data: Bond ETFs Will Keep Growing.) Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF (VCSH) Issuer: Vanguard Assets Under Management: $19.93 billion YTD Performance: 1.90% Expense Ratio: 0.07% Short-term bonds generally mature within one to five years, and yields are lower than those of their longer-term cousins. This fund tracks the Barclays U.S. 1-5 Year Corporate Bond Index and invests about 80% of its assets into securities on the benchmark index.

Bond Ratings | Corporate Finance | CPA Exam BEC | CMA Exam | Chp 7 p 3
Firms frequently pay to have their debt rated. The two leading bond-rating firms are Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s (S&P). The debt ratings are an assessment of the creditworthiness of the corporate issuer. The definitions of creditworthiness used by Moody’s and S&P are based on how likely the firm is to default and the protection creditors have in the event of a default. It is important to recognize that bond ratings are concerned only with the possibility of default. Earlier, we discussed interest rate risk, which we defined as the risk of a change in the value of a bond resulting from a change in interest rates. Bond ratings do not address this issue. As a result, the price of a highly rated bond can still be quite volatile. The highest rating a firm’s debt can have is AAA or Aaa, and such debt is judged to be the best quality and to have the lowest degree of risk. For example, the 100-year BellSouth issue we discussed earlier was rated AAA. This rating is not awarded very often: As of 2014, only four nonfinancial U.S. companies had AAA ratings. AA or Aa ratings indicate very good quality debt and are much more common. A large part of corporate borrowing takes the form of low-grade, or “junk,” bonds. If these low-grade corporate bonds are rated at all, they are rated below investment grade by the major rating agencies. Investment-grade bonds are bonds rated at least BBB by S&P or Baa by Moody’s. Rating agencies don’t always agree. To illustrate, some bonds are known as “crossover” or “5B” bonds. The reason is that they are rated triple-B (or Baa) by one rating agency and double-B (or Ba) by another, a “split rating.” For example, in March 2014, real estate investment company Omega Healthcare Investors sold an issue of 10-year notes rated BBB– by S&P and Ba1 by Moody’s. A bond’s credit rating can change as the issuer’s financial strength improves or deteriorates. For example, in January 2014, Moody’s cut the bond rating on PlayStation 4 manufacturer Sony from Baa3 to Ba1, lowering the company’s bond rating from investment grade to junk bond status. Bonds that drop into junk territory like this are called fallen angels. Although sales of the new PS4 were a positive factor noted by Moody’s, the rating agency felt that the majority of Sony’s core business such as TVs, mobile phones, digital cameras, and personal computers faced difficult times ahead. Credit ratings are important because defaults really do occur, and when they do, investors can lose heavily. For example, in 2000, AmeriServe Food Distribution, Inc., which supplied restaurants such as Burger King with everything from burgers to giveaway toys, defaulted on $200 million in junk bonds. After the default, the bonds traded at just 18 cents on the dollar, leaving investors with a loss of more than $160 million. Even worse in AmeriServe’s case, the bonds had been issued only four months earlier, thereby making AmeriServe an NCAA champion. Although that might be a good thing for a college basketball team such as the University of Kentucky Wildcats, in the bond market it means “No Coupon At All,” and it’s not a good thing for investors.
Short Term High Yield Bonds
The current low interest rate environment means that bond investors have to take more risk in order to gain an attractive return on their invested money. The current low interest rates also present a risk that if interest rates and inflation rise in the future, then bond prices may fall and portfolios could suffer losses.

Investing for Beginners - High Yield Bonds
Do High Yield bonds belong in your Roth IRA? Well, if you've been following the channel you know how I feel about bonds. Not a fan. But High Yield bonds are different. They pay more. Well, there is a reason they pay more.... they are riskier. In fact, look at 2007-2009 many high yield funds were down over 40%. In this video I am going to share with you why I think if you are going to take the risk to invest in high yield bonds, you may as well just go into stocks. Stocks have performed well ahead of high yield bonds, with a similar risk. Risk being defined as price swings of the portfolio. In fact, I will show you exactly how bonds work too, in terms of your returns. One thing you have to understand is there is NO capital appreciation in bonds. None. If you get capital appreciation today, it means capital depreciation MUST happen. It's pure, basic mathematics. Watch as I show you exactly what I mean. https://www.morningstar.com/funds/xnas/vwehx/quote.html https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/profile/performance/vwehx/cumulative-returns https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/VWEHX/performance?p=VWEHX ================================= If you like what you see, a thumbs up helps A LOT.

Is there Yield Appeal in Corporate Bonds - Right on the Money - Part 1 of 5
Sub Headline: Rating the Risk Against the Yield Reward Synopsis: When a corporation wants to raise money, it can do so by offering an equity position in the company through stocks or create a form of debt called a bond. Stocks generally receive more press from the mainstream financial media, and corporate bonds seem to receive little attention. There are a plethora of bond mutual funds and ETFs on the market. The average investor generally buys bond funds for their portfolio rather than individual corporate-issued bonds. Content: Sometimes bond mutual funds and ETF holdings can give you a sense of what professional money mangers are buying and the individual bond performance in side the fund. Over the last five years, high-risk corporate bond funds have returned 6.5 to 8.33 percent,1 but the risk is not for the faint of heart. Low to below-average risk corporate bond funds have retuned 1.76 to 3.13 percent1 over the same period. There will always be outliers in reviews like this, but this gives you a little insight to the corporate bond fund market. These returns are not net of fees, so you need to investigate fund costs before moving forward. The average 5-year bank certificate of the deposit is paying around 2.25 percent and FDIC insured (depending upon the amount and how the account is titled.) Five-year fixed annuity rates are averaging 3 percent. The annuity contracts are only as good as the insurance company issuing the policy. There are several rating services available to review the financial strength of the insurance company issuing the contract you’re considering. Keep in mind bank and annuity rates are generally net of fees. But, if you have risk tolerance for the market exposure to capture potential higher returns, then corporate bond funds and ETFs could be a strategy for income. Watch the interview with investment advisor representative Dan Stockemer addressing corporate bonds. Some investors appreciate owning stocks, or in this case bonds, direct from the corporation and love the feel of certificate in their hands. There are basically three types of corporate bonds: mortgage bonds, debentures, convertible bonds and commercial paper. Physical assets like real estate and equipment generally secure mortgage bonds. Debentures are secured only be the good faith and credit of the corporate issuer. Convertible bonds can generally be exchanged into a specific number of shares in common stock. The play here is the convertible bondholder has an expectation the underlying common stock will appreciate over time. Commercial paper is essentially unsecured short-term “loans” (30-90 days) to finance a company’s immediate needs. Rating services monitor the financial strength of a corporate and their ability to pay back their bonds. It’s in your interest to engage an experienced financial planner familiar with the bond market who can offer suitable recommendations based on your goals and risk tolerance. 1 Morningstar Corporate Bond Funds 5-Year Return, 02/21/16 Syndicated financial columnist Steve Savant interviews investment advisor representative Dan Stockemer on money topics that need addressing. Right on the Money is a weekly one-hour financial talk show for consumers. (www.rightonthemoneyshow.com)
Garnry: MarketAxess 'Disrupting' the Corporate Bond Market
http://goo.gl/3wDE5i Are we seeing the shake-up of the corporate bond world? Saxo's Peter Garnry thinks so and points to MarketAxess Holdings Inc -- an electronic trading platform for investment grade corporate bonds and the high yield variety. Garnry points out that in the past the market was very closed with little transparency. If an investor wanted to get a quote, only six major banks in London could provide them. Now he says that business model is being disrupted by the likes of MarketAxess. The platform is able to get quotes from around 400 different dealers increasing liquidity. Peter Garnry says there are parallels between the corporate bond market now and the equity market 20 years ago. He says that once it goes electronic it becomes more transparent and competitive. MarketAxess has some big backers including Wells Fargo & Company which owns 9.5 percent, Blackrock which holds nine percent and Vanguard which has six percent. The company has made around USD 250 million in revenue over the last 12 months and is growing between 18 and 20 percent a year. Garnry believes it will continue to do so for the next decade or so. He notes, however, that some investors may think they're paying too much for shares in the company. But he thinks it's a fair valuation because of the platform's future potential. This is a long-term investment.

OCBC Credit Research analyst Andrew Wong discusses how bond investors can still generate favourable returns despite the uncertainty hovering over the market in 2019.

Junk bonds
Junk bonds LBOs and debt levels This of course is the thinking behind the leveraged buyouts of the late 1980s. There were obvious excesses in that market, but almost every company should have some debt in addition to equity. The reason is simple. Interest paid to bondholders is tax deductible for the corporation, while dividends paid to stockholders are not. How higher debt levels increase stock prices Assume a company requires $100 in total capital. It can acquire this capital through a mixture of bonds or stocks. Let's say the company is financed entirely with $100 in stock. Further assume the company makes $10 in pretax profits, and the firm has a 40 percent tax rate. Thus, the after-tax earnings available for dividends to stockholders is only $6. Now assume the company is capitalized with $100 in bonds. The bonds promise to pay $10 in interest, which is exactly equal to the firm's earnings. After deducting the firm's interest payments from it's pretax earnings, the firm has a taxable income of $0. In this case, the providers of capital get all of the firm's $10 in earnings, and the government doesn't get anything in taxes. Of course this example is pretty strained. The latter case with 100 percent debt capital leaves the company operating with no tolerance for error. If the company doesn't earn enough to cover the interest payments, the company can be thrown into bankruptcy. Still, I hope you see that because of the deductibility of interest payments, there is an advantage to a company having a manageable load of debt. By using tax-deductible debt, the providers of capital get more money, and the government gets less. This brings us to the world of junk bond investing. Junk bonds, also called high yield bonds, used to be a small part of the bond market, but changes in financial markets and the 1986 Tax Reform Act made the issuance of low-grade debt more attractive. Now junk bonds constitute about 25 percent of the total corporate bond market. Junk bonds have higher interest rates, shorter maturities Junk bonds of course carry more credit risk than investment grade bonds. But because most high yield bonds have a maturity of less than 10 years, they normally carry lower interest rate risk than long-term US Treasury bonds. Also, you're usually compensated for the increased credit risk associated with junk bonds. Junk bonds generally yield about 2 percent more than investment grade corporate bonds. The junk market isn't efficient - players are left out Finally, since many institutions like commercial banks cannot invest in junk bonds, the number of buyers of these securities is artificially limited. With buyers limited, issuers have to pay more than they would otherwise have to pay. This should work to your advantage. There are, however, a few things to consider when investing in junk bonds. First, junk bonds often have been called stocks in disguise. This isn't exactly true, because with a bond, you have a contract between you and the issuer. No such contract exists for stockholders. Junk bonds behave like equities But high yield bonds sometimes behave like stocks. When the economy is down, stock prices fall because companies' earnings drop in the recession. Likewise, the prices of junk bonds also fall in a recession. With reduced earnings, the issuing companies are less able to pay their debt obligations. As fears of bankruptcy rise, junk bond prices fall. Note this price movement is the opposite of a US Treasury bond. Treasury bonds have no credit risk, but face inflation or interest rate risk. As interest rates drop in the recession, US Treasury bond prices rise. Use junk to diversify your bond holdings So junk bonds offer a good way to diversify your total portfolio. To get a good, diversified portfolio you want a mixture of assets that zig when other assets zag. Of course if you could switch from the losers to the winners, you'd make a lot more money, but in practice this is difficult and no one has a great record in switching like this. So instead of trying to time the market, it's probably better to maintain a diversified portfolio of uncorrelated assets. Because of their hybrid nature as a cross between stocks and bonds, and because of their attractive current yields, you should consider putting perhaps 20 percent of your total bond holdings into junk bonds. I mentioned before that some people think of junk bonds as stocks in disguise. Their prices sometimes move in tandem, but junk bonds and stocks generate different forms of income.
