Convertible and callable bonds

Bonds that can be converted into common stock at the bondholder’s option are convertible bonds. The conversion feature generally is attractive to bond buyers. Bonds that the issuing company can retire at a stated dollar amount prior to maturity are callable bonds. A call feature is included in nearly all corporate bond issues.
