10.2 The Case of the Missing Bond Ratings Its
probably safe to say that theres nothing more
important in determining a bonds rating than the
underlying financial condition and operating
results of the company issuing the bond. Just as
financial ratios can be used in the analysis of
common stocks, they can also be used in the
analysis of bondsa process we refer to as credit
analysis. In credit analysis, attention is
directed toward the basic liquidity and
profitability of the firm, the extent to which
the firm employs debt, and the ability of the
firm to service its debt.
