Investors are flocking to high-quality bonds and pushing yields into the negative territory. While most of the negative yields are sovereign debt, about one-seventh is corporate debt. On September 30 the reported face value of negative yield debt was $11.6 trillion, down slightly from June's peak of $11.9 trillion. At this point in 2015 there was less than $3 trillion in negative-yield debt. The demand for high-quality debt is so great that some new issues are negative-yield.
