Rising Asian HY Sparks U.S. Interest

High Yield Report;2/21/2011, Vol. 22 Issue 8, p18
The article discusses the growing profitability of Asian stock markets as of February 2011, and how such may improve those in the U.S. It states that market yields in the U.S. which used to provide returns of 15% to 20% in 2009, offer 6% to 8% in 2010. Junk bonds in Asia, however, especially those offered in Japan and China, were reportedly four times more in 2008 and 2009. This has attracted U.S. investors to the region. It is also hoped that Asian investors will develop an interest in U.S. stocks, which could speed the country's recovery further.
