A BBB- rating is usually considered the bottom of the investment grade bond ratings. BB is clearly a junk rating. It indicates that the rating agency could not find assets to cover redeeming the preferred. Hence, Bombardier must earn enough to repay you, or preferred owners will not get their money back.
