Our Credit Strategy recommendations incorporate valuations (relative value) and the author’s fundamental view on the security. The fundamental credit view of an issuer may be based on the company's underlying credit trends, overall creditworthiness and our opinion on whether the issuer will be able to service its debt obligations when they become due and payable. We may review, among other things, the company's cash flow capacity and trends and standard credit ratios, such as gross and net leverage, interest coverage and liquidity ratios. We may also review profitability, capitalization and asset quality, among other variables, when assessing financials. We also take into account management strategy, financial policy and the overall competitive landscape in relevant industries insofar as these may impact credit quality. We may also assess market technical aspects such as the likely future supply of bonds or fund flows into the broader asset class. Unless we specify a different recommendation for the company’s individual securities, an issuer recommendation applies to all of the bonds at the same level of the issuer’s capital structure. The investment recommendations remain valid only at the point of publication, as they are not updated to take account of changes in the financial markets or new news about the issuer or instruments.
