Recovery of High Yield Bond Losses During the 2020 Market Crash
The securities attorneys at the Morgan & Morgan Business Trial Group are investigating investment losses in high-yield bond funds.
High-yield bonds – sometimes called junk bonds – are bonds that pay higher interest rates than investment-grade bonds. This is because junk bonds have lower credit ratings than investment-grade bonds, and are more likely to default.
A bond rated below BBB- by S&P (or below Baa3 by Moody’s) is considered speculative, and investors will demand higher interest rates because of the higher default risk.
In addition to the higher default risk, high-yield bond prices have historically experienced higher volatility than investment-grade bonds. That certainly has been true for much of 2020.
