Thanks for the tip on the "Defaulted Bond" newsletter. I checked out the link that you provided (in a subsequent post) and find the information "interesting" but not very "useful". Based on what I saw in the sample newsletter, I wouldn't expect to find any information in it regarding the AA/AAA corprate bonds that I'm considering for purchase.

You also wrote ... I hope someone will respond to my previous post on how and what due dillegence one should carefully do to really confirm that a coprpration is absolutely "fiscally sound" and what speadsheet data should be thoroughly screened and checked out!

I agree with your desire to obtain that information. That was the thrust of my previous post when I said ... in buying AA or better "investment grade" corporate securities that mature within 5 years, can't I trust the rating services determination of the companies abitity to repay the "loan"? Need I dig deeper? Can I really expect to dig up anything that they haven't taken into account in determining the rating?

Hope some kind Fool can help us out!
