7. Selected Corporate CDS Quotes





The buyer of a credit default swap receives credit protection, whereas the seller of the swap guarantees the credit worthiness of the product. By doing this, the risk of default is transferred from the holder of the fixed income security to the seller of the swap.

The main goal of credit default markets is to establish market prices for a given default risk.  Credit default contracts are also used as part of the mechanism  behind many collateralized debt obligations (CDOs).

What is a Credit Default Swap ?
CDS prices are usually quoted in basic points.  A CDS price of 100 BPS  means that the credit insurer will charge 1% each year for covering the risk against default. Read more from: Wikipedia Investopedia   The International Investor  

Fitch Warning: :  CDS prices can be a useful analytical tool. However, it is important to recognize the potential limitations caused by both their inherent volatility and incidence of false positives during stress periods.
