Investors Are Turning to High Yield Bond Funds

News summary by MFWire's editors

Investors are showing interest in high-yield bond funds, which have held up well in the current market, Rob Silverblatt of US News and World Report writes.

Though rising rates are not ideal for junk bonds, they aren't fatal either. Silverblatt speaks to Sarah Bush, a senior analyst for Morningstar, who says junk bonds will prove heartier because one portion of its yield depends on the spread, not the yield. A limping stock market would hurt junk bonds more than rising interest rates, Silverblatt quotes Bush as saying.
