Using corporate bond index series over a period of 16 years, we provide a detailed decomposition of a bond’s expected returns. We are able to distinguish between the pre- mium related to systematic default risk and the premium related to the default event. We further analyze the determinants of expected returns and of the identified risk premiums, using variables constructed from credit markets, from stock markets and from moment related risk. The variables successfully explain a large part of the variations in those two premiums, however the signs on the variables are exactly opposed in the explanation of the systematic default risk premium and the default event premium.

Liquidity commonality exists and empirical evidence (e.g. Lin et al., 2011) indicates that exposure to this common liquidity factor is priced in the cross-section of corporate bonds. The existence of commonality implies that part of a bond’s illiquidity is left as idiosyncratic. In this paper, we study how illiquidity components explain the cross-section of bond yields and how this relationship varies over time and across bond categories. We use a factor decomposition to break down total illiquidity into a common and an idiosyncratic component and analyze how yields relate differentially to each of these two components. We find that a bond’s idiosyncratic illiquidity is important, which might reflect informational asymmetries compounded by the lack of diversification in the institutional investors’ portfolios. Moreover, the relation between illiquidity and yield spreads appears to be negative during the recent crisis period. [less ▲]
