Federal Reserve estimates are based upon published reports of issues
sold and schedule for offering; corporate rights offerings are included
as of data subscription rights expire.

Yields on new and seasoned corporate bonds were essentially unchanged
last week; the increase in the new is sue series was again attributable to a
shift in the number of component issues carrying no call protection. New
issues last week were not as well received as they had been the week before.
The major competitively-offered issue was said to be only about one-third sold
at the end of the week.
Yields on municipals advanced last week while new issues met with a
mixed reception. Although the $286 million Consumers Public Power District
revenue bond offering was nearly sold out, other issues were so poorly received
initially that dealers immediately began to cut prices -- adding another 5 to
10 basis points to the original reoffering yield. By the end of the week 77
per cent of the week's offerings had been sold and the volume of bonds in
syndicate was the largest in 16 months.

Home mortgage interest rates and other terms. Secondary market
yields on certain FHA-insured new home mortgages edged down to 7.42 per cent
in July. This was the first decline in 5 months, and the first real sign of
some movement toward easier credit in more than a year. The accompanying
discounts required by lenders declined to 5.5 points in July, a low for the
year. With the new Aaa corporate bond average declining somewhat faster
in July, the spread between the two rates widened slightly. While still below
typical spreads prevailing prior to 1965, this was the broadest margin in
favor of home mortgages in 14 months. The increase in the spread which occurred
in the last two months undoubtly enhanced the attractiveness of home mortgages
to some lenders.
Interest rates on conventional first mortgages for both new and
existing homes, according to the Federal Housing Administration series, rose
slightly further in July to new highs of 7.30 per cent and 7.35 per cent,
respectively, and were 80 basis points above a year earlier. The monthly
increase was smaller than in either May or June. As has recently been the case,
the Middle Atlantic region recorded the largest monthly advance as a result
of further changes in State usury laws.
According to the Federal Home Loan Bank Board series — which tends
to lag the FHA series — interest rates also advanced again in July on conventional home mortgages. Non-rate terms were also reported to be somewhat
tighter in July than they were in June. Maturities showed little change in
July while loan-to-price ratios fell. Both maturities and loan-to-price ratio
were only slightly changed from their year earlier levels. With average
purchase prices up in July, the corresponding implied downpayment averaged
$8.0 thousand on new homes and $7.1 thousand (a new high) on existing homes.
Stock prices. Common stock prices were virtually unchanged last
week, while trading volume was moderately heavy. Over the week the Standard
& Poor's index gained 0.01 points, closing Friday at 98.69. Trading volume
averaged 11.4 million shares a day.

Neither mortgage nor bond yields take into account servicing costs which are much
higher for mortgages than bonds. Generally, bonds pay interest semi-annually;
mortgages, monthly. Mortgage yields, if computed as equivalent to a semi-annual
interest investment, would be slightly higher than given in the table.
2/ Based on FHA-field-office opinions about average bid prices in the private secondary
market for new-home mortgages for immediate delivery. Separate data available for
25-year and--beginning July 1961—30-year mortgages with minimum downpayments,
weighted by probable volume of transactions. Yields computed by FHA, assuming prepayment period of 12 years for 25-year mortgages and 15 years for 30-year mortgages.
Over the period for which they can be compared, the movement of the two mortgage
yield series has been similar. Dashed lines indicate periods of adjustment to
changes in contractual interest rates.
3/ Based on FHA-field-office opinion on typical interest rates (rounded) on conventional
first mortgages prevailing in the market areas of insuring office cities. Beginning
with April 1960, rate relates only to new-home mortgages; prior to that date, rate
•related to both new as well as existing-home mortgages. Dashed line indicates this
change in the series.
4/ FHA mortgage yield data are for 25-year mortgages through June 1961; 30-year mortgages thereafter.

series beginning 1965.

/ Compiled by Federal Home Loan Bank Board in cooperation vith Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation. Data are weighted averages based on probability sample survey of characteristics of conventional first mortgages originated by major institutional lender groups,
(including mortgage companies) for purchase of single family homes. Data exclude loans
for refinancing, reconditioning, or modernization; construction loans to home-builders;
a n d — i n this exhibit--permanent loans which are coupled with construction loans to
owner-builders. Data prior to 1965 on a comparable basis with the new series are pending. Belated series on conventional mortgage rates only, based on unweighted opinions
of regional-office directors of the Federal Housing Administration, are available
somewhat sooner than the results of the FHLBB-FDIC survey, and are included—in the case
of new home mortgage rates--in Exhibit F Parts I and II.
1/ Fees and charges—expressed as a percentage of the principal mortgage amount--include
loan conenissions, fees, discounts, and other charges which provide added income to the
lender and are paid by the borrower. They exclude any closing costs related solely to
transfer of property ownership.
3/ Includes fees & charges amortized over a 10 year period in addition to the contract
interest rate.
