Monday's Headlines: Banks Are Hungry Again for Corporate Lending

Corporate lending is looking sunny - especially for companies with less than an AAA credit rating, according to CNN Money. However, since the end of 2008, the sale of corporate bonds with an S&P "A" are up 26 percent and BBB rated bonds jumped 43 percent.

The reason? Demand for yield and a pent-up demand for financing, as corporations have relied largely on cash in recent years.
