here's some excerpts from a recent article in the WSJ about high yield bonds:

"The average rate on "high yield" bonds recently fell below 4% to a record low. In the late 1990's, even corporate borrowers with the best reputations paid average interest rates on the order of 7%. (today) there is so much money looking for a place to go that companies are being contacted by investors asking if they would like to issue bonds rated below investment grade rather than the other way around"
