Bonds rated below ‘investment grade’ i.e. below BBB- for Standard and Poor’s and below Baa3 for Moody’s. Also known as speculative grade bonds, non investment grade bonds or (infamously) junk bonds. Unrated securities can also be classified as high yield if they trade at a wider spread than other corporates and at a level which is more comparable with other high yield bonds
