What are convertible bonds?

Convertible bonds (issued by corporations) are a type of hybrid security that offer interest payments just like regular bonds, while also giving you the option to convert it to the underlying stock.

Convertible bonds can be traded in for a predetermined amount of the common stock of the issuing company, although provisions generally restrict when a conversion can take place.
