User: How important are bond ratings when evaluating a bond for purchase?

Weegy: The central consideration in determining the bond rating has to do with the financial condition and reputation of the debt issuer of the bonds. [ Simply put, the issuer has to be able to present a reasonable ability to be able to honor the terms and conditions that govern the issuance of the bonds. Demonstrating this degree of financial competence helps to ensure that that any investor that chooses to purchase one or more bonds from the issue can reasonably expect the return of both the initial investment and any accumulated interest that is extended as part of the purchase. Along with demonstrating the ability to eventually honor the terms of the bond issue, the bond rating process will also consider the ability of the issuer to meet the original schedule of interest payments, as well as the schedule for repaying the principle investment. ]
