Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
The iShares iBoxx High Yield Corporate Bond ETF was launched in April of 2007 to track the investment results of an index comprising U.S.-dollar denominated high-yield corporate bonds.
Among the most widely used vehicles to replicate the high-yield sector, HYG covers a broad range of income-generating companies, some 1,250 of them. About one-third of the holdings carry maturities of 3 to 5 years. More than half (55%) are rated BB by Standard & Poor’s.
As an exchange-traded fund, HYG trades like a stock. Performance-wise it tends to behave like a risk-asset, moving in correlation with the swings of the stock market.
It has $25.7 billion in assets (as of October) making it the largest ETF in this asset category. Among HYG’s top holdings are blue-chip companies that have fallen below investment grade. These include Ford Motor Company, Sprint Corporation and Caesar’s Entertainment.
