Rich and cheap refer to the pricing of a new security in the primary market, relative to comparable securities in the secondary market. A new issue is considered to be cheap if it is inexpensive compared to the rest of the market. Rich, or overvalued bonds, have lower yields than bonds with similar terms and credit ratings. Cheap, or undervalued bonds, have higher yields than paper with similar maturity and credit risk.
