Default Investing in bad times .

Company bonds are NOT necessarily safer in difficult times .
Quote:
Bonds which never pay back principal, yield only 1%, and are converted
to equity if the issuer gets into trouble (that is, at exactly the time when
you don’t want to own their stock), are being enthusiastically snapped
up by Japanese investors. After similar instruments have already blown
up in Europe.
