High yield bond funds?
« on: July 13, 2017, 01:48:13 PM »
What are these, and what are the risks?  I see in Kiplinger's that the Fidelity New Markets Income fund 1 year annualized total return listed as 13.4% and the Vanguard High-Yield Corporate fund at 9.7%. 

Most bond yields are low, so what's the story about these? 

edit: I found this list http://news.morningstar.com/fundReturns/FundReturns.html?category=$FOCA$HY  and see some had negative returns, so there's obviously risk involved.
