What to expect when Moody's announces SA credit rating: Iraj Abedian
 
08:30
Economy watchers in South Africa are on tenterhooks tonight as the possibility of a credit rating downgrade looms. Today is scheduled for rating agency Moody's to make a possible rating change. Although it's not obliged to do so. Moody's is the only one of the three major rating agencies that still rates South African debt as investment grade. A downgrade into junk status could mean that some government and foreign investors will be barred from buying South African bonds which are used by the government to raise money. So there could be a forced outflow of investment dollars. Since 2017 South Africa has been rated below investment grade by rating agencies Standard and Poor and Fitch. After President Cyril Ramaphosa's first state of the nation address last year - Moody's upgraded its outlook from negative to stable - meaning we were no longer on watch for a downgrade. Since then, however, there has been another load-shedding crisis and other issues affecting growth and job prospects. To discuss we're joined via Skype by the chief economist at Pan African Investment and Research Services, Iraj Abedian. For more news, visit: sabcnews.com

Bond Ratings | Corporate Finance | CPA Exam BEC | CMA Exam | Chp 7 p 3
 
13:07
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.

What is Junk?
 
01:19
Junk refers to an asset, such as a stock or bond when rating drops below investment grade. Once a credit rating drops below the BBB level, it is "sub-investment" grade and is commonly referred to as junk. Companies with a low credit rating generally pay a much higher interest rate on their debt, and may find it difficult to sell new bonds. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy.
How Bond Ratings Work
 
07:15
Trade bonds free for 60 days using TD Ameritrade: http://bit.ly/td-ameritrade Join us in the discussion on InformedTrades: http://www.informedtrades.com/2005065-intro-bond-ratings-how-use-them.html KEY POINTS 1. Bond ratings are a way to assess the default risk of a bond. Default risk is the risk that the bond issuer will not be able to pay back the full coupon and principal obligations of the bond they issued. 2. There are three agencies that collectively account for 90% of the market for credit ratings: Standard & Poor's, Moody's, and Fitch Ratings. Of the three, S&P and Moody's account for 40% each; Fitch is a minority player whose primarily role is to serve as the tie-breaker of sorts when S&P and Moody's issue conflicting ratings. 3. A bond is considered investment grade or IG if its credit rating is BBB- or higher by Standard & Poor's or Baa3 or higher by Moody's. Generally they are bonds that are judged by the rating agency as likely enough to meet payment obligations that banks are allowed to invest in them. A bond's yield is typically inversely related to its rating; in other words, bonds with lower ratings have higher yields. 4. Bond rating agencies have come under considerable criticism in the years since the financial crisis of 2008. Agencies collectively failed to identify credit securities that were at high default risk, and have been sued for their actions. That agencies derive their revenue from governments and corporations that pay them for ratings has also led many to question their integrity and objectivity. 5. In spite of the increase in skepticism regarding the objectivity and competence of the credit ratings agencies, changes in bond ratings can and do impact bond prices, often considerably. As such, investors may wish to factor in ratings into their analysis and portfolio decisions using bond screeners.

SA eagerly awaits investment grade credit rating on Friday

We will know on Friday whether or not South Africa can hang onto it's investment grade credit rating - which affects our attractiveness to global investors. S and P will release it's rating decisions. It currently ranks South Africa only one notch above sub-investment grade or so-called junk status with a negative outlook. Ratings affect the interest that investors charge to lend a country money. Higher rates means that government will have less to spend on services and efforts to boost the economy. That means lower economic growth, less jobs and more economic pain. The significance of junk status is that many institutional investors will not even be allowed to lend South Africa money.

Default Risk and Bond Rating - Finance - What is the Definition - Financial Dictionary
 
02:30
Although bonds normally promise a fixed flow of income, this does not mean that they are riskless investments. Although U.S. government bonds are treated as risk-free, this is not the case for corporate bonds. If a company goes bankrupt then the bondholders will not receive the payments that they have been promised and therefore there is some uncertainty surrounding future bond payments. This uncertainty is called default risk. The default risk is measured by Moody's Investors Services, Standard & Poor's Corporation, and Fitch Investors Service. All three of these entities provide financial information on firms as well as well as ratings on corporate and municipal bonds. Investment Grade Bonds Bonds that are rated BBB or above by Standard & Poor's, or Baa or above by Moody's are called investment grade bonds. Speculative Grade or Junk Bonds Bonds that are rated BB or lower by Standard and Poor's, Ba or lower by Moody's, or bonds that are unrated are considered junk bonds or speculative grade bonds. Bond rating agencies use financial ratios to grade bonds. The key ratios used are show below as follows Coverage ratios Leverage ratio Liquidity ratios Profitability ratios Cash flow-to-debt ratio https://www.youtube.com/user/Subjectmoney https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a7b8v6Mz7A

Turkey gains investment grading from Moody's - economy
 
00:34
http://www.euronews.com/ Turkey's economy has been given a boost with an upgrade by the Moody's ratings agency. Shares rose in Istanbul on Friday and the country's cost of borrowing fell. Fitch had lifted Turkey to investment-grade in November, while Standard & Poor's is expected to follow suit. Ankara sees this a seal of approval from international markets for a decade of economic reform. The Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan said they now expect much greater investments from overseas but added the central bank needs to be ready to respond to the rise in the value of the Turkish lira. He added: "Turkey long deserved this rating, or an even higher one, both economically and politically. I see this as a delayed recognition of what we deserved." Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan, echoed Caglayan's criticism of the time it has taken for Turkey to attain its current rating levels. "This decision is as correct as it is late. Due to the right steps that we have taken on the economy, our country's indicators in global markets have for a long time been on a similar level as those countries with investment-grade credit ratings," he said in a statement. Moody's said the one-notch upgrade was based on structural improvements in the economy and in public finances that will better insulate Turkey from external shocks. It expected Turkey's debt burden to decline in the coming years after falling 10 percentage points to a "manageable" 36 percent of GDP since the beginning of 2009. The move by Moody's came just just hours after the central bank cut key interest rates by 0.5 percent. That was done to stimulate the economy, which has been faltering a bit, and to keep the lira from appreciating due to monetary easing by other central banks.

Credit Ratings of Triple Net Tenants
 
02:59
Welcome back! Today were talking about Triple Net Investing and more specifically the Credit Worthiness of your tenant. If you're going sign a lease on a long term basis or you're purchasing a building that comes with a lease that's got a lot of years left on that lease, you would want to make sure that that tenant has good credit. Now were not going check their FICO score or anything like that, that's not how it works with credit tenants. What we're looking for are corporations, that, hopefully they are Fortune 500 company. They are public company. They've got public information that we can research thru some of the rating agencies like Standard & Poors (S&P), Moody's or any other rating agency. These agencies have done the work for us, they've done their research. They constantly analyze the credit worthiness of these tenants on a daily basis. We take that information and we make decisions from it. For example some credit tenants have AAA ratings. This is rare. Were talking about companies like Wal-Mart, McDonalds, Walgrens, and Large National banks. Ratings change all the time, But were looking for is investment grade, what is investment grade? That is S&P ratings of a BBB- or better. You think like a report card A's are better that B's, C's are worse than B's, anything below B isn't doing good. Just like when you were at school if you brought home less than a B or C your parents weren't happy. Same thing with investing. Some things you should be aware of; you can get franchisees for fast food and casual dining restaurants. You know a lot of these places you see all over. You may not have a corporate signed lease. You have to double check to see if the lease is signed by the corporation. This is a whole lot different than a credit rating from a franchisee. For example, one guy owns a Burger King, this is a much different signature than the Burger King Corporate Signed lease. What that means is, who did you go after if there is a default on the lease. If it is a multibillion dollar, multinational corporation that's a much better than trying to go after a mom and pop who flip burgers down at Dairy Queen. So you want to look at the credit ratings and this is really one of the most important things to consider because the better the credit it adds to the value of the property. We'll talk more about the credit worthiness of specific tenants in future videos. Or you can reach out to us at Beaubien Investment Group anytime. Call Will Beaubien at 415-218-7936.

Credit Rating Agencies - Need For Reform
 
17:24
transcript 1. Crisis - Spotlight on Credit Rating Agencies "Credit-rating agencies use their control of information to fool investors into believing that a pig is a cow and a rotten egg is a roasted chicken. Collusion and misrepresentation are not elements of a genuinely free market " - US Congressman Gary Ackerman The smooth functioning of global financial markets depends, in part, upon reliable assessments of investment risks, and Credit Rating Agencies play a significant role in boosting investor confidence in those markets. The above rhetoric, although harsh, beckons us to focus our lens on the functioning of credit rating agencies. Recent debacles, as enunciated below, make it all the more important to scrutinize the claim of Credit Rating Agencies as fair assessors. i) Sub-Prime Crisis: In the recent sub-prime crisis, Credit Rating Agencies have come under increasing fire for their covert collusion in favorably rating junk CDOs in the sub-prime mortgage business, a crisis which is currently having world-wide implications. To give some background, loan originators were guilty of packaging sub-prime mortgages as securitizations, and marketing them as collateralized debt obligations on the secondary mortgage market. The agencies failed in their duty to warn the financial world of this malpractice through a fair and transparent assessment. Shockingly, they gave favorable ratings to the CDOs for reasons that need to be examined. ii) Enron and WorldCom: These companies were rated investment grade by Moody's and Standard & Poor's three days before they went bankrupt. Credit Rating Agencies were alleged to have favorably rated risky products, and in some instances put these risky products together for a fat fee. There may be other over-rated Enron's and WorldCom's waiting to go bust. The agencies need to be reformed, to enable them pin-point such cancer well-in-advance, thereby increasing security in the financial markets. 2. Credit Ratings and Credit Rating Agencies i) Credit rating: is a structured methodology to rank the creditworthiness of, broadly speaking, an entity, or a credit commitment (e.g. a product), or a debt or debt-like security as also of an Issuer of an obligation. ii) Credit Rating Agency (CRA): is an institution, specialized in the job of rating the above. Ratings by Credit Rating Agencies are not recommendations to purchase or sell any security, but just an indicator. Ratings can further be divided into i) Solicited Rating: where the rating is based on a request, say of a bank or company, and which also participates in the rating process. ii) Unsolicited Rating: where rating agencies claim to rate an organisation in the public interest. Credit Rating Agencies help to achieve economies of scale, as they help avoid investments in internal tools and credit analysis. It thereby enables market intermediaries and end investors to focus on their core competencies, leaving the complex rating jobs to dependable specialized agencies. 3. Credit Rating Agencies of note Agencies that assign credit ratings for corporations include A. M. Best (U.S.) Baycorp Advantage (Australia) Dominion Bond Rating Service (Canada) Fitch Ratings (U.S.) Moody's (U.S.) Standard & Poor's (U.S.) Pacific Credit Rating (Peru) 4. Credit Rating Agencies - Power and Influence Various market participants that use and/or are affected by credit ratings are as follows a) Issuers: A good credit rating improves the marketability of issuers, as also pricing, which in turn satisfies investors, lenders or other interested counterparties. b) Buy-Side Firms : Buy side firms such as mutual funds, pension funds and insurance companies use credit ratings as one of several important inputs to their own internal credit assessments and investment analysis, which helps them identify pricing discrepancies, the riskiness of the security, regulatory compliance requiring them to park funds in investment grade assets etc. Many restrict their funds to higher ratings, which makes them more attractive to risk-averse investors. c) Sell-Side Firms: Like buy-side firms many sell side firms, like broker-dealers, use ratings for risk management and trading purposes. d) Regulators: Regulators mandate usage of credit ratings in various forms for e.g. The Basel Committee on banking supervision allowed banks to use external credit ratings to determine capital allocation. Or, to quote another example, restrictions are placed on civil service or public employee pension funds by local or national governments. e) Tax Payers and Investors: Depending on the direction of the change in value, credit rating changes can benefit or harm investors in securities, through erosion of value, and it also affects taxpayers through the cost of government debt. f) Private Contracts: Ratings have known to significantly affect the balance of power between contracting parties, as the rating is inadvertently applied to t

JP Morgan Analyst Discusses REIT Debt Levels, Investment Grade Ratings
 
05:13
Mark Streeter, managing director at JP Morgan Chase, joined REIT.com for a video interview during REITWise 2014: NAREIT's Law, Accounting and Finance Conference held in Boca Raton, Fla. Streeter was asked about appropriate debt levels for REITs and how the industry as a whole performs in this area. He noted that since the financial crisis, the REIT industry has been more focused on the metric of debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). "The debt-to-EBITDA metric is more comparable across sectors, and that's been driven in part by the desire by investors and the ratings agencies to really compare REITs to the broader market," Streeter said. He added that the right level of leverage is dependent on the asset class. "You really need to drill down to where the asset's valued on an equity basis" to determine the appropriate amount of leverage that the market valuation can support, Streeter said. Streeter also commented on the merits of obtaining an investment grade rating. "I think most of these REITs are focused on running now with investment grade credit ratings. We're up to 60 names that are actively issuing in the bond market right now and have pursued investment grade credit ratings, and there's still a pipeline of many more names that are looking to tap the market," Streeter observed. "Most REIT CFOs are very focused on having access to public and private capital, secured and unsecured, just like they're focused on having access to public and private equity... I think it's the most prudent strategy to have a rating," Streeter said. "We've seen many, many new names come to the market recently. There's been a whole host of new REITs to the market that have really benefitted from having that access and having that credit," he added. Streeter also said he is trying to keep investors focused on the fact that from a credit perspective, the REIT industry continues to perform well. "The bonds don't default. They're basically worth par. You have very protective covenants. It's a very unique asset class in the investment grade credit market," he pointed out. By Sarah Borchersen-Keto

Moody's decision on SA's credit rating - Zuzana Brixiova
 
05:58
The Rand hit a one month high today following the decision of credit rating agency, Moody's, not to downgrade South Africa. South Africa was hit by a series of downgrades last year which means that S and P and Fitch - the other major rating agencies - rate South Africa as junk when it comes to the sovereign or 'foreign currency' rating. They also rate South African bonds denominated in Rand - which are the majority bonds that the government uses to raise funds - as junk. But Moody's as you can see rates South Africa in investment grade. Last year it took a wait and see stance and - given its note on Friday - the rating agency is happy with the budget and the political changes in South Africa. Markets are cheering the fact that Moody's not only kept its rate unchanged but also changed the outlook from negative to stable. That means we are no longer likely to be downgraded the next time around. For more news, visit: sabcnews.com

What is High Yield Bond? | Definition of High Yield Bond
 
11:28
What is High Yield Bond? | Definition of High Yield Bond: In finance, a high-yield bond (non-investment-grade bond, speculative-grade bond, or junk bond) is a bond that is rated below investment grade. These bonds have a higher risk of default or other adverse credit events, but typically pay higher yields than better quality bonds in order to make them attractive to investors. Sometimes the company can provide new bonds as a part of yield which can only be redeemed after its expiry or maturity. Risk: The holder of any debt is subject to interest rate risk and credit risk, inflationary risk, currency risk, duration risk, convexity risk, repayment of principal risk, streaming income risk, liquidity risk, default risk, maturity risk, reinvestment risk, market risk, political risk, and taxation adjustment risk. Interest rate risk refers to the risk of the market value of a bond changing due to changes in the structure or level of interest rates or credit spreads or risk premiums. The credit risk of a high-yield bond refers to the probability and probable loss upon a credit event (i.e., the obligor defaults on scheduled payments or files for bankruptcy, or the bond is restructured), or a credit quality change is issued by a rating agency including Fitch, Moody's, or Standard & Poors. A credit rating agency attempts to describe the risk with a credit rating such as AAA. In North America, the five major agencies are Standard & Poor's, Moody's, Fitch Ratings, Dominion Bond Rating Service and A.M. Best. Bonds in other countries may be rated by US rating agencies or by local credit rating agencies. Rating scales vary; the most popular scale uses (in order of increasing risk) ratings of AAA, AA, A, BBB, BB, B, CCC, CC, C, with the additional rating D for debt already in arrears. Government bonds and bonds issued by government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) are often considered to be in a zero-risk category above AAA; and categories like AA and A may sometimes be split into finer subdivisions like "AA−" or "AA+". …………………………………………………………………………………..
