If a bond issued at par goes to 116, that's not a bubble, says original (bond) gangster Dan Fuss. "If it goes to 250, that's a bubble, and that doesn't tend to happen with bonds." The strong performance of fixed income reflects a strong market, he says, but one with room yet to grow.

    Agree.As profits and cash flow increase so does EBIT/interest coverage, a key indicator fior me. On the balance sheet side, keverage declines with increased orofits. Both can result in upgrades in bond ratings and higher prices.....NOT lower prices as some " bubble" analysts may suggest.
