The article reports that high yield bonds in the U.S. adjust to a volatile second quarter of 2010. Despite optimism shown by bond investors for the quarter, they remain unsure that the bond market will reach high similar to early 2009. According to Thomson Reuters, U.S. issuers have priced 106.5 billion U.S. dollars in junk bonds. In April 2010, more than 30 billion U.S. dollars in junk bonds priced via 78 deals were issued. However, about a dozen companies pulled issues from the market in the second quarter.
