There have been quite a few articles on how a lot of Corporate debt is at the lowest level B rating. If a slow down continues, those companies could end up in the C rating range which puts them in Junk status and certain Institutional Investors cannot invest in them which could mean dumping them at any cost. You would have to be pretty savvy to jump on this opportunity to buy when others are selling and are hopefully certain the companies you are holding will pay back their obligations.A lot of the big players out there, namely, Buffet has been saying stock market returns in the future are going to be low relative to the "recent" past. I am thinking that if this is true what does that look like for the corporate bond market? Especially in an economy like we are in now corporate debt seems like a good place to be given uncertainties about the future. If companies earnings aren't going to outgrow the debt yields might as well buy the debt. This leads me to my next thought, low interest rates are meant to stimulate growth, which grows corporate earnings, if that isn't working where it doesn't seem to be in a lot of places what's the rationale for equities? A company can cut dividends, but if revenues are coming in enough to satisfy debt payments it seems like a no brainer.
