  1. What is a junk bond?

A junk bond is a high-yield, fixed-income, non-investment grade instrument that carries a rating of Ba or lower by Moody’s or BB or lower by Standard & Poor’s (S&P) or Fitch.

  1. Why are junk bond investments risky?

The quick, high returns associated with junk bonds come with high risks of default. Many junk bonds never recover value as the company continues to falter or eventually files for bankruptcy.

  1. How can investors identify a junk bond?

The instrument is a junk bond if:

  • The rating agencies have classified it as non-investment grade
  • The bond yields high returns that are above the norm
  • The bond never recovers value or defaults
  • The company does not recover or goes bankrupt
  • The investment is in the energy sector, a commodities market or other volatile industry
  • The investment is in Puerto Rico or other failing economy
  1. Are junk bonds always a bad investment?

Some investors with high-risk tolerance may choose to invest in junk bonds with the intention of earning high returns in a short period of time. The potential of making more money may be worthwhile to some investors who can absorb the potential losses.

  1. When is a junk bond an unsuitable investment?

Junk bonds are an unsuitable investment for conservative investors with low risk tolerance, such as retirees or those saving to meet relatively modest long-term goals. Also, an investor with a large percentage of high-risk junk bonds may benefit from a more diverse portfolio that includes less risk.

  1. Under what legal theories can an investor file a claim?

An investor who has lost money in junk bonds may have valid claims based on stockbroker negligence, stockbroker misconduct, stockbroker fraud, unsuitable investment and breach of fiduciary duty.
