The article reports that despite the poor performance of convertibles in 2005, convertible market professionals see a number of indications that the market will recover. One indicator is that traditional investors are starting to return into market, replacing some of the hedge fund investors. The market is also experiencing a trend toward lengthened maturities. Moreover, there was a 9.4 percent rise in the Lehman Brothers Composite Convertible Index from mid-May to mid-September 2005.
