For me, there were several take aways from the article. Mostly around the interest in high-yield debt in the market at the moment and how that is affecting the issuers. It was good to see specific examples.

Conditions are currently similar with higher-risk middle market borrowers too from my conversations with some folks at regional banks and smaller PE firms. Lots of banks and other lenders willing to jump into it after really overreacting in the spring of 2020 and becoming very risk-averse. Also interesting that there is projections of further improvement in defaults. Sure, who knows to what extent that's true, how helpful/effective the vaccines will be, etc but good to see what some of the folks in the business are thinking. Agree that it's not trading advice by any means. Just something to consider (for me anyway).
