Q.
Municipal bonds: ratings
Where can I find ratings of municipal bonds?

A.

Use Bloomberg:

  • For credit worthiness of US states and territories, type STGO then press GO.

Or use Mergent Bond Record
Available in print: Ref. HG4905 .M78 in the Stamps Reading Room

To identify specific state securities, type SECF then press GO.  Change the Category to Fixed Income, then in the drop-down menu go to Muni tab.  From here you will see all Muni Bonds and can filter using any of the amber fields above each column, e.g., by state.
