Dan,

I'm really not sure where to throw in anything with bond analysis in the current set of 4 parts. I suppose it would be possible to add some links in conjunction with the discussion of corporate bonds, but my inclination is to wait until someone is willing to organize a part 5 dedicated to the rudiments of bond picking and trading.

Maybe for now, you (or someone else) could just start from something like:

If you want to buy corporate bonds with anything less than the higest ratings (AAA or AA), and in principle even those, you need to evaluate the default risk of the bond relative to its yield and value, and in comparison to other bonds. Bond analysis requires considerable knowledge. Here are some links to some such analyses.
