Junk bond

a bond that produces a high rate of return, or high yield. Generally, at the time of purchase such a bond will be assigned a very low grade by a credit agency, reflecting a relatively high chance of default. The issuer must therefore resort to high yields to attract investors. Also termed High yield bond.
