I like Morningstar as they seem like a company that is at least attempting to continually improve their spreadth and depth of offering.

I don't know how long they've been doing the Bond thing, but their latest tool is pretty cool.


They now break down the capital structure for companies (equity, preferred, bonds) and also breakdown the ownership and YTM of the bonds/preferreds.

The cool thing that I think folks will appreciate here is that they break down the different bond offerings by size/maturity/YTM graphically.

Check it out, I think it's a pretty valuable little chart, even if all of the bonds won't be available via ETrade, etc, it's still pretty cool.

I'm an equity guy of course, so maybe this isn't as cool for you guys. ;-)
