On the Moody's sheet for every corporate bond I've seen there is a line that states whether the debt has support (Y or N). Can anyone tell me what this means or point me in the direction to find out? Thanks!
Here are some examples of issues with and without support, by CUSIP:
105340AL7, 20030NAR2, 94106LAS8, 199575AW1 (with support) 927804FF6, 26442CAD6, 11102AAA9, 118230AG6 (without support)
It looks like most (3/4 examples) of those with support were issued by companies that "were previously known as" something else. That's at least some new information!
