DEVELOPMENTS

IN 1HL UN1IED STATES
(Including Savings Flows in March)
Corporate and municipal bond markets.
Public security financing
by corporations this week will be somewhat larger than last week's total,
with a $65 million offering of convertible debentures of Great America
Corporations (proceeds to be used primarily to refund outstanding
securities) accounting for one-half of the total. The supply of new
municipal bonds,on the other hand, will be the largest for any week
since early last December and two issues will account for two-fifths
of the volume--a $71 million Commonwealth of Massachusetts offering
and $90 million in bonds of the Puerto Rico Water Resources Authority
($68 million refunding).

1/ Federal Reserve estimates based on published reports of issues sold
and scheduled for offering; corporate rights offerings are included
as of the date subscription rights expire.
Apparently because of the continued buildup of the corporate
calendar for May and its probable impact on yields, dealers last w e e k
broke the syndicates of two more corporate bond offerings.
The subsequent mark-down in the offering prices on these issues was sufficient
to raise yields 2-5 basis points.
Bidding for last week's sole competitive issue was therefore a shade less aggressive than for comparable
issues offered earlier, and the corporate new issue yield series rose
to within a single basis point of the March high.
Although demand for last week's small supply of new municipal
offerings remained sluggish, yields on seasoned, Aaa-rated bonds were
stable for the seventh consecutive week.
However, by cutting prices
on older issues in their inventories, dealers were able to make some
slight reduction in their advertised inventories.

Private housing starts and permits.
Seasonally adjusted housing
starts
recovered by 9 per cent in March from the reduced rate in
February. The annual rate of 1,549 thousand (including farm) in March
was above the average for all of 1964 for the first time this year, but
was 7 per cent below the advanced rate a year earlier.
For the first quarter as a whole, the seasonally adjusted annual
rate of starts averaged 1,477 thousand.
This barely exceeded the low
in the third quarter of 1964 and was 6 per cent down from the improved
rate in the fourth quarter of that year.
As in most other recent months, Government-underwritten starts
have continued to account for a larger proportion of total starts than
last year when their share was still declining.
In March, the proportion was 17.2 per cent, compared with 16.1 per cent in March of last
year and 17.4 per cent two years earlier.
Seasonally adjusted residential building permits turned up
a g a i n — b y 5 per cent--in March.
Permits for single family structures
continued to change little, but permits for multifamily structures
increased to the highest rate in the past seven months.
Stock market credit.
Total customer credit in the stock
market rose $65 million during March to $6.9 billion at the month-end.
Customers' net debit balances (except on U.S. Government securities)
accounted for two-thirds of this advance by increasing $44 million,
while the remainder was attributable to a $21 million rise in bank
loans to others than brokers and dealers for purchasing or carrying
similar securities.
Money borrowed by member firms of the New York Stock Exchange
on customers' collateral went up $44 million in March, the first month-tomonth gain since last April. Customers' free credit balances rose $10
million firther. More detailed information on changes in stock market
credit in recent months is shown in the table on the following page.
Stock prices.
Closing at 88.88 on April 23, common stock
prices (as measured by Standard and Poor's composite index of 500
stocks) were at an all-time high and up almost one per cent on balance
from the week earlier level. Trading volume averaged 5.9 million shares
a day, down 0.4 million shares from the average for the previous week.

Note:
Exchange by member firms carrying margin accounts. Bank loans to others than brokers and
dealers for purchasing and carrying securities are for weekly reporting member banks.
Net
debit balances and customer free credit balances are as of the end of the month; bank loans
and money borrowed are reported for the last Wednesday of the month. Numbers in parenthesis
denote month of year. All figures exclude credits on, or to carry, U.S. Govt, securities.
1/ November 1963 data on customers' net debit balances do not include accounts carried by
a large former member firm in liquidation; most of these accounts have been transferred to
other member firms and are reported in t h e i r debit figures from the month received (some in
December, more in January 1964). Debit balance totals for the period from October 1963
through January 1964, therefore, are not completely comparable.




-5Savings flows in March. During the month of March, the net
gain in income-yielding claims on depositary-type institutions amounted
to $3.4 billion, 29 per cent more than in the comparable month a year
earlier. Most of this year-over-year-growth in savings flows was
provided by the continued sharp rise in time and savings deposits at
commercial banks. The increase in regular deposits at mutual savings
banks was slightly larger than in March 1964, but the gain in savings
share capital at savings and loan associations was slightly smaller.
During the entire first quarter of this year, the net inflow
of savings to these institutions amounted to a record $9.1 billion,
34 per cent more than in the corresponding period last year. All of
the additional growth this year over last took place in time and savings
deposits a*- commercial banks;
inflows at both mutual savings banks and
savings and loan associations were less than in the first quarter of
last year.
Growth in savings capital at savings and loan associations
during March continued to lag behind the year earlier expansion as
it had in each of the three preceding months, but the year-over-year
shortfall was the smallest since December. Moreover, on a seasonally
adjusted basis, the March inflow was the largest since last November.

Although the March gain in regular deposits at mutual savings
banks was larger than a year earlier, it was still 2 per cent below
the record March 1963 inflow.
Furthermore, on a seasonally adjusted
basis, the March inflow was the smallest since late 1963.

Time and savings deposits at commercial banks increased $1.8
billion in March, a record for that month and 73 per cent more than
a year earlier. The gain for the first quarter amounted to a record
$6.2 billion, 82 per cent greater than in the corresponding period last
year. Moreover, this recent quarter exceeded by one-eighth the previous
first quarter record set in 1962--each of these periods followed changes
in Regulation Q and commercial banks had raised their interest rates
paid on their time and savings deposits.

developments is presented in the attached exhibits.

started at that tina. ITU and VA starts are units started under oonmi tenant a by these agencies to Insure
or guarantee the mortgages* As reported by fHA and VA, a unit Is started when a field office reoeires
the first oonmllance Inspection report, whloh is made before footings are poured In some oases but
normally after the foundations have been completed* Capehart military housing units are excluded*
Other starts are derived as a residual, although total and FHA and VA starts are not strictly comparable
in concept or timing* other starts include both units financed by conventional mortgages and unite
without mortgages.
2/ Building permits before January 1963 are Census estimates fer about 10,000 areas identified as
having a local building permit system in 1959. Estimates beginning January 1963, are f o r approximately
12,000, or a l l knewn, permit-issuing p l a c e s . Unlike starts, seasonally adjusted building permits
reflect direct adjustnent for differences in the nunber ef wo iking days per mon-th, as well as other
differences in timing aid coverage*

concerning timing of takedowns.
