Results show that conclusions as to the significant variables of spreads depend significantly on whether two-way cluster-adjusted standard errors are utilized, thus rendering results in the extant literature ambigious. The main determinants of global cargo-carrying companies' shipping bond spreads are found in this paper to be: the liquidity of the bond issue, the stock market's volatility, the bond market's cyclicality, freight earnings and the credit rating of the bond issue. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.||ISSN:||1366-5545||DOI:||10.1016/j.tre.2014.06.001||Rights:||© Elsevier||Type:||Article||Collaboration :||Athens University of Economics and Business
