FNMA secondary market operations. Sales by the Federal
National Mortgage Association in the secondary market recovered in
November from the unusually low level reached in October. While still
not particularly high, the total of $5.7 million in November was above
that for any other month since July.
Purchases by FNMA declined to $16.0 million in November. As
in October, they exceeded the reduced year-earlier level, however.
Offerings also declined—to $26.0 million, compared with $12.0 million
in November of last year.
Capital markets in December. Corporate new capital financing
in December aggregated an estimated $1,150 million, one-fifth less than
last year's record December total. Most of this volume, as in December
cf other years, consisted of the large year-end takedown of private
placements which probably set a monthly record. Large public offerings
totaled $230 million {$30 million in convertible bonds) compared with
$547 million in December 1963.
Despite the uncertainties present in the bond market following
the discount rate increase in late November, underwriters bid aggressively
for several investment-grade corporate bond issues offered the first
week in December. At 4.47 per cent, the average yield on new corporate
bonds (adjusted to an Aaa basis) in that week was only one basis point
above the level prevailing in late October when the last previous
eligible issues were offered. Rescinding of a prime rate increase by
a large Eastern bank triggered a quick sell-out for these issues, and
three large negotiated issues offered before the Christmas holiday lull
also were quickly distributed. Thus, dealers shelves were bare of unsold
issues at the end of 1964.
Municipal bonds sold to obtain new capital in December had a
par value of $950 million, a record for the month and substantially more
than twice the volume of a year earlier. In addition, bonds sold to
refund outstanding'issues totaled roughly $100 million. Retail demand was
generally good for those issues sold during the first two weeks of the
month, but slackened as the unseasonally large volume of new issues offered
before the holidays reached the market. As a result, dealers' advertised
inventories of unsold securities rose by $90 million on balance during the
month to around $670 million at the year-end.
Despite this rise, yields on seasoned municipal bonds dropped
during December to their lowest levels in more than a year, with those
on Aaa-rated issues falling to 2.99 per cent the week before Christmas
where they remained at year-end. This was 6 basis points under the
lowest yield reached during the November rally.
Common stock prices, as measured by Standard and Poor's composite
index of 500 stocks, fluctuated within a narrow range during December.
Closing the month at 84.75, prices were slightly higher than a month
earlier .but were still almost 2 per cent below the record high reached on
November 20. Trading volume averaged 4.7 million shares a day during the
month.

H. 14

Estimated security offerings in January.
Flotations of
corporate securities in January are estimated at $0.8 billion. This
is three-tenths smaller than the seasonally high December total and
one-seventh less than last year, but is larger than in January of most
other years.
State and local government bond offerings in January are also
expected to amount to $0.8 billion. This is one-seventh less than both
the revised total for the previous month and January 1963. Large issues
currently on the calendar for offering this month total $306 million.
More detailed information concerning recent capital market
developments is presented in the attached exhibits.

Difference in reoffering yields on bonds sold to U.S. citizens and those sold to
foreign citizens reflects an upward adjustment of 8.83 per cent in the price paid by
U. S. citizens. This premium was collected by the underwriters in accordance with the
provisions of the new Interest Equalization Tax. This tax is collected--under a scale
of rates which rises with maturity--when U. S. lenders buy new security offerings from
borrowers in certain designated "developed" countries.

Note:
;

For retrospective data on aggregate foreign corporate and government security
offerings in the United States see Exhibits I and J. There is no simple relationship
between the data shown in this Exhibit and that shown in Exhibits I and J because the
latter includes privately placed securities in the period in which funds are actually
takendown but only in the amount of takedown, while the placements shown in this
exhibit are included when reported, frequently with little or no information concerning timing of takedowns. Full or partial takedowns may take place both prior and
forsubsequent to the data a placement is reported. ^--Included in table for first time.
