I think everyone agrees that bonds are less volatile than stocks. But also the people who buy them and trade them tend to be more conservative with higher expectations. Hence, smaller changes in bond prices make just as much news.

Good quality bonds are solid assets, and tend to hold their value. But interest rates changes and changes in bond ratings can make for excitement. And then there are those who try to anticipate and speculate about future changes in the various factors.

Those who like excitement can find it in bonds too.
