CAPITAL MARKET DEVELOPMENTS
(Including Quarterly Review of
Corporate Security Financing)

During the week ending August 28, corporations sold l a r g e
i s s u e s t o t a l i n g $190 m i l l i o n ; no l a r g e S t a t e and l o c a l government
i s s u e s were o f f e r e d . The corporate financing t o t a l f o r l a s t week
included a $125 m i l l i o n debenture issue of General Motors Acceptance
Corporation, which had been o r i g i n a l l y scheduled f o r s a l e i n e a r l y
September. The calendar f o r t h i s week includes one corporate o f f e r i n g
(another f i n a n c e company issue) f o r #50 m i l l i o n and S t a t e and l o c a l
government bonds t o t a l i n g $88 m i l l i o n .
Bond y i e l d s - Yields increased l a s t week f o r a l l types of
outstanding bonds, except those f o r lower grade S t a t e and l o c a l
government bonds which remained s t a b l e . The increase i n y i e l d s
on U. S. Government o b l i g a t i o n s was s u b s t a n t i a l , bringing them t o
new h i g h s . The increase in y i e l d s was s l i g h t f o r o t h e r types of bonds.
Mortgage and bond y i e l d s - Discounts reported by Federal
Housing Administration f i e l d o f f i c e s on c e r t a i n FHA-insured new-home
mortgages a v a i l a b l e f o r immediate delivery i n the p r i v a t e secondary
market increased f u r t h e r i n J u l y , and t h e implied y i e l d rose to a
record 5.75 p e r cent, I;0 b a s i s p o i n t s above a y e a r e a r l i e r . The
spread between gross y i e l d s on these mortgages and r e t u r n s on new
i s s u e s of high-grade corporate bonds remained below 100 b a s i s p o i n t s
f o r the t h i r d s t r a i g h t month. Over t h e p a s t 73 months, the spread has
been t h i s low only 12 times.
September s e c u r i t y volume - The September volume of corporate
i s s u e s f o r new c a p i t a l i s expected t o t o t a l
m i l l i o n , one-sixth
below t h e estimate f o r August volume (which has been revised to r e f l e c t
the s a l e of t h e G A issue) and t w o - f i f t h s s m a l l e r than the volume i n
MC
September l a s t y e a r . A volume of $2.0 b i l l i o n in the t h i r d q u a r t e r —
one-fourth m a i l e r than a year e a r l i e r .— would bring new i s s u e volume
f o r the f i r s t t h r e e q u a r t e r s t o #6.8 b i l l i o n , o n e - f i f t h below the
volume i n t h e corresponding period of 1958.
State and l o c a l government s e c u r i t y f i n a n c i n g i s expected t o
t o t a l §700 m i l l i o n i n September, including a $190 m i l l i o n i s s u e by t h e
Chesapeake Bay Ferry Commission, which p r e s s r e p o r t s i n d i c a t e w i l l
probably be sold e a r l y i n t h e month. This volume would be t w o - f i f t h s
more than the seasonally low volume of bond s a l e s in August and onet w e l f t h l a r g e r than in September 1958. Including t h i s estimate f o r

Corporate Security O f f e r i n g s
i n the Second Quarter 1959
Net proceeds of corporate s e c u r i t y o f f e r i n g s during t h e '
second q u a r t e r of 1959 t o t a l e d $2.6 b i l l i o n , a s shown i n Table 1.
Refunding of outstanding s e c u r i t i e s was very small — $U2 million as
compared with,$225 m i l l i o n i n the second q u a r t e r l a s t year when
i n t e r e s t r a t e s were much lower.
Net proceeds f o r new c a p i t a l - Corporations sold $2.6 b i l l i o n of s e c u r i t y i s s u e s t o obtain new c a p i t a l i n the second q u a r t e r
of 1959. This volume was one-sixth l a r g e r than t h a t in t h e f i r s t
q u a r t e r t h i s y e a r , but s l i g h t l y (2 p e r cent) below the volume a year
e a r l i e r . For the f i r s t h a l f , t h e volume of new c a p i t a l i s s u e s t o t a l e d
Sit.8 b i l l i o n , o n e -s ix th smaller than in the corresponding period l a s t
year.
E l e c t r i c , gas and water u t i l i t i e s were the most important
group of i s s u e r s during the second q u a r t e r . Totaling $965 m i l l i o n ,
new i s s u e volume was n e a r l y o n e - f i f t h l a r g e r than i n the f i r s t
q u a r t e r , but U per c e n t lower than i n the second q u a r t e r of 1958.
New c a p i t a l o f f e r i n g s by manufacturing companies t o t a l e d
$7^6 m i l l i o n during the past q u a r t e r , twice as l a r g e as t h e very
small volume i n t h e f i r s t q u a r t e r , but about one-fourth smaller than
i n the second q u a r t e r l a s t y e a r . Offerings by iron and s t e e l and
e l e c t r i c a l machinery manufacturers showed the l a r g e s t d o l l a r i n creases from the corresponding period l a s t y e a r , while new f i n a n c i n g
by nonferrous metals and petroleum producers r e g i s t e r e d t h e l a r g e s t
d e c l i n e s . I t should be noted t h a t financing by the l a t t e r two
i n d u s t r i e s had been p a r t i c u l a r l y heavy l a s t y e a r , r e f l e c t i n g the
s a l e of t h r e e i s s u e s with proceeds of over #100 m i l l i o n ; no i s s u e s
of t h i s s i z e were sold during the recent q u a r t e r .
New i s s u e volume by f i n a n c i a l and r e a l e s t a t e companies were
the t h i r d most important category during t h e April-June p e r i o d , with
proceeds of $339 m i l l i o n , t h r e e - f o u r t h s l a r g e r than i n the corresponding p e r i o d of l a s t y e a r . The increased volume t h i s y e a r i s l a r g e l y a
r e s u l t of increased f i n a n c i n g by s a l e s and consumer f i n a n c e companies;
f i n a n c i n g by t h e s e companies had been very small l a s t y e a r .
