With the markets off to a solid start in 2019, investors are starting to dip back into the high yield waters. In fact, they dove in with $3.28 billion in flows the past week.

“There’s a decent bid for things that got beat up the most over the last month or two,” said Zachary Chavis, portfolio manager at Sage Advisory Services.
