This should help bond investors who are hesitant to give out money to companies who have yet to post a profit. Twitter has shown “strong revenue growth and free cash flow generation,” according to Moody’s Investors Service analyst Neil Begley.
As has been widely over the course of 2019, emerging markets bonds are great sources of yield for investors that can handle the added risk and there is plenty of that go around. Emerging markets bonds yield noticeably more than developed markets equivalents, but for investors wanting even more yield, junk debt from developing economies can be a consideration. The VanEck Vectors Emerging Markets High Yield Bond ETF (NYSE: HYEM), which has returned nearly 5% year to date, provides that access.
Emerging markets equities get plenty of attention for being undervalued relative to their U.S. counterparts while developing world debt is being lauded for superior yields at a time when bond yields in much of the developed world reside near historic lows.

The VanEck Vectors EM High Yield Bond ETF (HYEM) provides that access.

Over a dozen junk bonds in Europe are returning negative yields, which is confounding the fixed income markets as fears of a global economic slowdown persist. As such, high yield debt issues with negative yields can certainly be dubbed an anomaly. “It is a perverse situation,” said Colin Purdie, chief investment officer for credit at Aviva Investors.
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell gave the capital markets what they wanted to hear, which was leaving the door wide open for the possibility of interest rate cuts. For fixed income investors, a low-interest rate environment doesn't bode well for high yield options, but one place they could look for is emerging markets debt. 2019 has thus far seen the reemergence of emerging markets, but while investors are sifting through the plethora of opportunities the EM space has to offer, it's wise to not overlook the high yield corner of the bond markets.
While 2019 has thus far seen the reemergence of emerging markets, fixed income investors must still sift through the plethora of opportunities the EM space has to offer in terms of high yield. With the central bank ready to implement rate cuts if needed, investors could be starved for high yielding assets and rather than look domestically, they could find an abundance of opportunities overseas. “We own China dollar bonds,” says James Barrineau, co-head of emerging market debt at Schroders in New York.
High-yield corporate bonds are often considered one of the more adventurous segments of the fixed income market.
