High Yield Report;8/16/2010, Vol. 21 Issue 33, p36
The article reports on the international finance market as of August 2010. Due to the volatile nature of the economic recovery, corporate liquidity has deteriorated. Liquidity remains available for companies based on the overall trend as compared to 2009 combined with an active bond market, according to the author. Moody's associated the increase in stress index to the dependence of speculative-grade corporate liquidity on continued access to credit markets. The author describes factors determining the state of liquidity for corporate issuers as stable.
