Noble Energy Bond more than 17% yield

65504LAC1 - Noble Hldg Intl Ltd 4.9% 08/01/2020 Discount Bond.

I am doubling down on this high yield, also known as junk, bond.   When I first picked this bond and bought it the price was in the $90's.   Interest coverage was over 9.  See this link:

Clearly, things have changed in the oil and gas patch with Noble's (symbol NE) earnings taking quite a hit.  Yet, their interest coverage ratio is over 2.

Most recent quarterly results show an increase in cash and a positive spin on their future by their management.  

I paid $60.51 for this bond.  YTM is 18%.  Maturity is 8/1/2020.

Good luck,
