Default

Default refers to when a borrower does not make a scheduled payment of interest or a repayment of the principal

Credit ratings agencies rate companies on their likelihood of companies or governments defaulting on their  payment of interest or a repayment of the principal.  The rating can have an impact on the valuation of a bond and as a result, bonds with a poorer credit rating (sub investment grade) tend to have higher yields than those with high credit ratings.
