Bond Rating

A grade on creditworthiness given to a bond by one of the big rating agencies, such as Moody's or Standard & Poor's. The top ratings, some variant of A or AAA, signify the greatest likelihood that bondholders will be paid interest and get return of principal, but bonds with these ratings usually pay the least interest.
