What does the credit rating for bonds mean?

The credit rating of bonds is essential to bond investing because it represents the issuer's credit evaluation as rated by Standard & Poors and/or Moody's. A high rating (such as AAA) implies a small chance of default, while a poor rating (such as CCC) is a very risky investment.
