Are U.S. Government Bonds AAA or Junk?…And Who’s Lying?
The U.S. government is in debt $21 Trillion, an amount that can never be paid. Yet Moody’s and Fitch reaffirmed their top AAA rating on U.S. debt. Why do they do this? Do they have to? Why can’t politicians, the media, CEO’s, or anyone else, ever tell Americans the truth?

Is Moody's WARNING Of A CRASH? - Massive Wave Of Junk Bond Defaults Ahead!
Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about Moody's most recent warning as the credit rating agency claims there is likely a large wave of junk bond defaults ahead. We have seen the level of global non-financial companies rated as speculative or junk rise 58% since 2009, the largest proportion in history! We've also seen a 49% increase in debt for U.S. companies as well as the rise of share buybacks which are becoming more prevalent and more risky by the day. Moody's warnings should not be taken in stride. The agency only issues warnings when they absolutely have to and cannot put off the bad market sentiment any longer. They can only cover up so long until it becomes obvious. For their own good, they have to look like a serious credit rating agency when the markets tank, so they can say "I told you so." According to Moody's, the low interest rates and obsession with yield has lead to companies issuing mounds of debt that in comparison offer low levels of protection for investors. They warn that when economic conditions worsen, the outlook won't be so benign. We haven't seen this level of concern since 2008, and there's a reason for that. Nothing has changed since 2008. Well, actually scratch that... things have gotten WORSE since 2008. We never saw a recovery, we simply saw perpetuation. Putting off the crisis a bit longer, leading to far more pressure build-up and centralization run amok. Now, when it comes down, it'll come down that much harder and it'll be as if no one ever learned. If we want to stop the circular havoc, we as individuals need to support the individual's demand of their currency, the free market. Not bank and government centralization leading to massive downfalls. How many times do we need to go through this. Of course the fundamentals are off the table due to the level of manipulation in the monetary system as well as the markets, so we cannot put a date on the crash, but we know it has to happen inevitably and so we must prepare and understand the repeated problems. Self sustainability and individual responsibility are simply the most necessary ways to protect ourselves against this market and monetary calamity. Individuals must do their own due diligence and come out of this problem, strong and independent. Stay tuned for more from WAM!

What is a Junk Bond?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is a “Junk Bond” A junk bond is exactly the same as a regular bond. Junk bonds are an IOU from a corporation or organization or country that states the amount it will pay you back called the principal, the date it will pay you back known as the maturity date and the interest it will pay you on the borrowed money. Junk bonds differ because of their issuers' credit quality. All bonds are characterized according to this credit quality and therefore fall into one of two bond categories, investment grade and junk. These are the bonds that pay high yield to bondholders because the borrowers don't have any other option. Their credit ratings are less than pristine, making it difficult for them to acquire capital at an inexpensive cost. Junk bonds are typically rated 'BB' or lower by Standard & Poor's and 'Ba' or lower by Moody's. Junk bonds are risky investments, but have speculative appeal because they offer much higher yields than safer bonds. Companies that issue junk bonds typically have less-than-stellar credit ratings, and investors demand these higher yields as compensation for the risk of investing in them. A junk bond issued from a company that manages to turn its performance around for the better and has its credit rating upgraded will generally have a substantial price appreciation.

Intro to the Bond Market
Most borrowers borrow through banks. But established and reputable institutions can also borrow from a different intermediary: the bond market. That’s the topic of this video. We’ll discuss what a bond is, what it does, how it’s rated, and what those ratings ultimately mean. First, though: what’s a bond? It’s essentially an IOU. A bond details who owes what, and when debt repayment will be made. Unlike stocks, bond ownership doesn’t mean owning part of a firm. It simply means being owed a specific sum, which will be paid back at a promised time. Some bonds also entitle holders to “coupon payments,” which are regular installments paid out on a schedule. Now—what does a bond do? Like stocks, bonds help raise money. Companies and governments issue bonds to finance new ventures. The ROI from these ventures, can then be used to repay bond holders. Speaking of repayments, borrowing through the bond market may mean better terms than borrowing from banks. This is especially the case for highly-rated bonds. But what determines a bond’s rating? Bond ratings are issued by agencies like Standard and Poor’s. A rating reflects the default risk of the institution issuing a bond. “Default risk” is the risk that a bond issuer may be unable to make payments when they come due. The higher the issuer’s default risk, the lower the rating of a bond. A lower rating means lenders will demand higher interest before providing money. For lenders, higher ratings mean a safer investment. And for borrowers (the bond issuers), a higher rating means paying a lower interest on debt. That said, there are other nuances to the bond market—things like the “crowding out” effect, as well as the effect of collateral on a bond’s interest rate. These are things we’ll leave you to discover in the video. Happy learning!

Junk-Rated Chicago Schools Plan Bond Issue
Chicago's public school (CPS) system plans to sell a new type of bond issue in an attempt to separate the debt from the district's severe financial woes and protect it in a potential bankruptcy filing, according to a document released by the district on Tuesday. The preliminary prospectus for the debt indicates the Chicago Board of Education will issue $500 million of bonds secured solely by a capital improvement property tax and not by the district's general obligation pledge. That pledge currently covers about $6.8 billion of existing bonds that are rated junk by Moody's Investors Service, S&P, and Fitch Ratings. CPS, the nation's third-largest public school system, is struggling with pension payments that will jump to about $720 million this fiscal year from $676 million in fiscal 2016, as well as drained reserves and debt dependency - factors that have pushed its GO credit ratings deep into the junk category and led investors to demand fat yields for its debt. Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner last week vetoed a bill to give CPS a one-time $215 million state payment to help cover pension costs. Ratings for the new bonds, backed by a $45 million a year property tax levy approved by the Chicago City Council in 2015, were not available. Because that tax revenue can only be used to fund capital projects and not operations, CPS is hoping bondholders will consider the debt a safer bet than the district's GO bonds. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/EMPWmmvD964/us-chicago-education-bonds-idUSKBN13V2VM http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

What is Junk?
Junk refers to an asset, such as a stock or bond when rating drops below investment grade. Once a credit rating drops below the BBB level, it is "sub-investment" grade and is commonly referred to as junk. Companies with a low credit rating generally pay a much higher interest rate on their debt, and may find it difficult to sell new bonds. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy.
Moody's downgrades Chicago credit rating to junk bond status
Moody's Investors Service has lowered Chicago's credit rating to junk bond status, a move Mayor Rahm Emanuel is calling irresponsible. Now, the slow-burning flames of this downgrade crisis at City Hall are suddenly roaring. The decision by Moody's means the cost of borrowing by Chicago will increase. Moody's didn't just slash and burn the City of Chicago's general obligation credit rating to junk status, it also downgraded to junk nearly another $4 billion in bonds tied to revenue from the city's water and sewer systems. Moody's didn't touch the State of Illinois' credit rating, but blamed its sweeping downgrades of city debt on a case the state lost last week at the Illinois Supreme Court. The court ruled a law unconstitutional on Friday that would have cut public employee pensions, which prompted Moody's to declare the following: "We believe the city's options for (reducing)...its own unfunded pension liabilities have narrowed considerably." Moody's suggested if the city raised taxes, it might re-evaluate the credit rating downgrades. That drew an angry, written response from Mayor Emanuel. "While Chicago's financial crisis is very real and at our doorsteps, today's...decision by Moody's...is not only premature, but it is irresponsible to play politics with Chicago's financial future by pushing the City to increase taxes on residents without reform," Emanuel wrote. Emanuel said he would continue to "work in Springfield and with our partners in labor to ensure we will always meet our obligations, protect the retirements of our workforce, continue to deliver vital city services, while protecting our taxpayers." So, does this mean the international credit markets will now lump Chicago together with Detroit, that other credit-challenged Midwestern metropolis? “I've been in Detroit. And, for many reasons, Chicago is a much different economic situation than the Detroit economic situation is; the diversity of the city's economy. The size of the economy is just -- We're in a much different place than the City of Detroit's been over the last couple of decades,” said Chuck Burbridge, Executive Director of the Chicago Teachers Pension Fund. Now, the mayor and other Chicago Democrats are suddenly much weaker politically. That $2.2 billion is the key. If the big banks demand the cash Moody's has now enabled them to demand, the city probably can't pay. It drastically increases pressure to cut a deal with Gov. Bruce Rauner that they otherwise might not have considered. Rauner's bargaining position just got a lot stronger. In their announcement, Moody's noted the costs of servicing its unfunded liabilities will place "significant strain on the city's financial operations absent commensurate growth in revenue and/or reductions in other expenditures." Emanuel said Moody's is out of step with other rating agencies and ignores the city's progress in dealing with its financial liabilities. Statement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel “While Chicago's financial crisis is very real and at our doorsteps, today's irresponsible decision by Moody's to downgrade the City's credit by two steps goes far beyond that reality. Their decision was driven solely by the overturning of a state pension bill that did not include Chicago's pension reform, yet they did not downgrade the State of Illinois. Moody's is out of step with other rating agencies – by as many as six steps – as they refuse to acknowledge Chicago's growing economy, progress we have made on our legacy financial liabilities, balancing four budgets without raising property taxes while adding to our reserves, securing pension reforms for two of the City's four funds to preserve and protect retirements for 61,000 employees that were previously in danger, and the progress we are now making with our partners in labor at the other two city funds. This action by Moody's is not only premature, but it is irresponsible to play politics with Chicago's financial future by pushing the City to increase taxes on residents without reform. I am committed to focus on both reform and revenue to address Chicago's fiscal crisis, and we will continue our work in Springfield and with our partners in labor to ensure we will always meet our obligations, protect the retirements of our workforce, continue to deliver vital city services, while protecting our taxpayers.”
J is for Junk Bonds - The Elite Investor Club's A - Z Guide of Investing
We’ve already reached the tenth letter of our investor alphabet – well done for sticking with me this far! Today we’re going to look at an asset class that has an unappealing name but which could provide returns that are very attractive. J is for junk bonds. We’ve already established that a bond is simply a loan to a government or a company. So what do we mean by a junk bond? It’s a term that came to be used in the nineteen eighties and will forever be associated with one of its pioneers, Michael Milken. One of the risks of being a pioneer is that you get arrows in your back. Ask Milken – he went to jail over junk bonds. But that’s a story for another time.. A junk bond is issued by a company which usually has a not too brilliant credit rating from the official rating agencies who measure these things. The specific definition is a rating of BB or lower from Standard and Poors or BA or below from Moodys. Because they are deemed to be high risk companies, historically they’ve had to offer much higher rates of interest than bonds issued by companies judged to be safe. So they can appeal to investors looking to diversify their portfolio and willing to accept higher risk for higher returns with at least some of their savings. I say historically because in recent years one of the strangest phenomena that I’ve seen is the massive reduction in this so called risk premium. Just like its amazing that Spain or Portugal can borrow money for not much more than Germany or Switzerland, so it is bizarre that many junk bonds now offer only marginally better returns than A rated companies. The biggest attraction for the more sophisticated investor is to find junk bonds issued by a company at the start of a major business turnaround. For example if a new management team is put in place or a new product is launched around the time that the bond is issued. Not only do you lock in a good return, but if the turnaround leads to a re-rating by the credit agencies then the value of the bond can sky rocket in a matter of days. In the junk bond peak of the nineteen eighties companies with few assets would use this paper as a means of acquiring other businesses. Then they’d use the real assets of the acquired business to pay off the debt they took on to fund the acquisition! But as they became more widely used, so the quality of the companies declined and the rate of defaults increased. Many investors got a bloody nose and the junk bond craze died out. But, memories are short. Investors who don’t learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. And that’s what they’re doing right now. If the main bond markets are at risk of a sharp correction when interest rates start to rise again, I can only imagine the scorched earth that will ensue in the junk bond market. And don’t imagine that this is a tiny niche market. Over ninety five per cent of American companies with revenue over thirty five million dollars a year have their bonds rated as junk. They include household names like Delta airlines and US steel. The US junk bond market alone is worth half a trillion dollars. But this is definitely a market for sophisticated investors only. You should only invest money you can afford to lose and no more than the top five or ten per cent of your portfolio. There’s nothing wrong with allocating some of your savings to high risk high return assets. Just make sure you do some due diligence otherwise you might just as well throw darts at the Financial Times…

What is a junk bond?
A junk bond is a higher-risk bond that has a speculative appeal as they can offer much higher yields. However, companies that issue junk bonds typically have a poor credit rating and although the price appreciation of a junk bond is substantial, if the company manages to turn itself around it isn't always able to do so.

Rival raters Standard and Poor still give Portugal investment status, while Moody's thinks the country is in an even worse state, rating it Ba2.

Default Risk and Bond Rating - Finance - What is the Definition - Financial Dictionary
Although bonds normally promise a fixed flow of income, this does not mean that they are riskless investments. Although U.S. government bonds are treated as risk-free, this is not the case for corporate bonds. If a company goes bankrupt then the bondholders will not receive the payments that they have been promised and therefore there is some uncertainty surrounding future bond payments. This uncertainty is called default risk. The default risk is measured by Moody's Investors Services, Standard & Poor's Corporation, and Fitch Investors Service. All three of these entities provide financial information on firms as well as well as ratings on corporate and municipal bonds. Investment Grade Bonds Bonds that are rated BBB or above by Standard & Poor's, or Baa or above by Moody's are called investment grade bonds. Speculative Grade or Junk Bonds Bonds that are rated BB or lower by Standard and Poor's, Ba or lower by Moody's, or bonds that are unrated are considered junk bonds or speculative grade bonds. Bond rating agencies use financial ratios to grade bonds. The key ratios used are show below as follows Coverage ratios Leverage ratio Liquidity ratios Profitability ratios Cash flow-to-debt ratio https://www.youtube.com/user/Subjectmoney https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a7b8v6Mz7A

Stalled Illinois Pension Bill Affects Pensions for Junkmen and Junk Bonds
The Illinois House on Saturday passed a bill that gives Chicago some financial breathing room by restructuring its contributions to retirement funds for city public safety workers. This is the latest over Illinois's debt crisis in relation to the state's pension plan. Where on May 8th the Illinois Supreme Court’s decided to overturn state pension reforms which placed Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s plan to reform two of four city employee pension funds in similar jeopardy. That triggered a downward spiral that saw Moody’s Investors Service double-drop Chicago’s bond rating to junk status and do the same to the Chicago Public Schools and Chicago Park District. Two other Wall Street rating agencies ordered lesser drops. The 65-45 vote sends the bill to the Senate, where Senate President John Cullerton, a Chicago Democrat, has signed on as its chief sponsor. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/RIDUjw1UVWs/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com

Investors are Demanding Money from Junk Bond Funds Adding to the Sell-off
U.S. junk bonds are becoming more of a market worry. The sell-off continues this morning with bonds of dozens of low-rated companies falling anew and shares of some large-fund management firms tumbling as well. Investors have demanded their money back from junk bond funds in recent days, managers are being forced to sell bonds to raise cash. Buyers are scarce for the lowest quality bonds and managers are selling higher quality ones. The Federal Reserve begins what could be the most watched Fed meeting in years. A decision on interest rates will be announced Wednesday afternoon. Boeing (BA) is increasing its dividend and buying back stock. The dividend will be increased by 20% and the stock buyback is $2 billion. Walt Disney (DIS) could reap $9 billion from ancillary products related to 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', like soup cans, coffee creamer and even fresh produce, according to Bloomberg.

$1 Bln In Bonds Approved By Chicago Public Schools
On Wednesday the Chicago Board of Education gave final approval to the sale of up to $1 billion of new and refunding bonds for the junk-rated district. IN order to fund capital improvements using a $45 million property tax hike approved by the Chicago City Council last year, the third-largest public school system in the United States will sell up to $840 million of general obligation bonds through Barclays and JP Morgan Securities. Through a yet-to-be-announced underwriting team, the district will also restructure up to $160 million of variable-rate bonds into a fixed-rate mode. A Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman, said earlier this week that market conditions will dictate when the deals will be priced. In addition to drained reserves and debt dependency, CPS is struggling with pension payments that will jump to about $720 million this fiscal year from $676 million in fiscal 2016. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/GqTf2XDsGhE/us-chicago-education-bonds-idUSKCN12Q2SS http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
