I purchased a very substantial amount of WCOM bonds rated A3/BBB+ last year. I am not sure what I should do now that the bonds are selling at 40ยข on the dollar. Take a horrible loss now, or wait and see what happens. I guess there is a time for everything...I have never before had a company default on a bond I owned. Any thoughts about what I should do?
