Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Or just do your own credit analysis. Analysing a simple corporate bond isn't much harder than analysing the stock of said company. Sure, it's pretty hard to figure out what the real value of it is (compared to the market value), but it's a lot easier to evaluate if the company is at a considerable or neglible risk of bankruptcy, which is after all what matters to credit investors as you have no part in the upside.

And if you can't decide what the risk of bankruptcy is because the company has some complex or convoluted business model, don't buy the bond. There are lots of other fishes in the sea.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
