论文摘要:

Using a comprehensive data set, we _nd that corporate bond returns not only remain predictable by traditional predictors{dividend yields, default, term spreads and issuer quality{but also strongly predictable by a new predictor formed by an array of 26 macroeconomic, stock and bond predictors. Results strongly suggest that macroeconomic and stock market variables contain important information for expected corporate bond returns. The predictability of returns is of both statistical and economic significance, and is robust to different ratings and maturities.
