The rush of companies to issue high-grade credit must be significantly higher than the demand from investors, to push the interest rates up so much.

So, is this an opportunity? Or, would it be worth waiting more?


I don't speculate, but I'd say there is a way to go yet. Stocks haven't taken a hit yet (and they will IMO), the real estate market is spotty down (not in full retreat except maybe in the rust belt and NE), the long-term bond turnaround was bound to happen and should rise even more, and the fed hasn't totally jumped in because of a fear of inflation.

I think if you want to buy junk bonds it's approaching the right time. I wouldn't bet the egg money yet on long-term bonds that weren't part of a ladder.
