White's Ratings

A ratings service that investigates tax exempt bonds. It rates a bond on a scale of one to 100 according to its liquidity, that is, the ease with which it can be bought and sold. Importantly, unlike other rating services, White's Ratings does not account for the issuer's creditworthiness.
