The possibility that a firm will be unable to pay the principal and interest on a bond in
accordance with the bond indenture is known as the default risk. Standard & Poor's and
Moody's are the two leading advisor)' services reporting on the default risk of individual
bond issues. Standard & Poor's gives bonds a rating based on a scale of AAA (least risk) to
D (bonds in default). The ratings from AA to CCC may carry a plus or minus. Table 4-5
shows the complete set of ratings. An investment grade bond is rated BBB or higher; any
bond with a lower rating is known as a junk bond. .Many fiduciaries are limited by law to
bonds that are investment grade.
Some bonds originate with an investment grade, but are later downgraded below BBB. Such
a bond is a fallen angel. Salomon Brothers uses the term zombie bond to refer to a highly
speculative bond, once thought long dead, that shows signs of life by a price run-up.
Standard & Poor's has a separate description for each of the ratings AAA, AA, A, and BBB.
Junk bonds, however, are all covered by a single definition, the salient portion of which
states that these bonds are regarded on balance, as predominately speculative with respect to
capacity to pay interest and repay principal in accordance with the terms of the obligation.
