This company has been exhibiting poor performance of late.

Yesterday it hit a 52 week low.

What was more surprising is that its bonds were totally crushed, for example the 4.875% 2019 bonds dropping almost 12% to an all-time low - for an all-time high yield of over 10%.

I have some of these bonds, and am now looking at a 25% loss in my investment ( even after including interest ).

Wonder if I should sell and move on to greener pastures, or hang on?

For bonds to drop so massively tells me that bondholders are scared of default, and usually bonds are not as volatile as stocks. This drop scares me........
