IN THE UNITED STATES

VE B "

Corporate "and municipal bond markets. The volume of new,
publicly-offered corporate and municipal securities expected this week
is below the average weekly volume over the past year. Over half the
corporate volume consists of the $100 million offering by Northwestern
Bell Telephone, while the largest municipal offering will be the Houston
Independent School District's $39.8 million issue. The week's long-term
offerings may be supplemented by the Quebec Hydro-Electric Commission's
$50 million of bonds.

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

Yields on seasoned corporate bonds were unchanged last waek, but
the somewhat discontinuous new issue yield series indicates that such yields
have declined considerably from their peak. Last week's Aa-rated utility
carrying 5-year call protection was offered at 6.50, considerably below the
peak for such an issue-- registered exactly one month earlier — of 6.80.
The new issue was furthermore very well received. Allegedly, the announcement of selective controls to improve the U.S. balance of payments position
was interpreted favorably by bond market participants.
Yields on municipals were generally lower last week, and new
issues sold exceptionally well. By Friday night, 96 per cent of tfhe week's
offerings had been sold --the highest proportion in over a year

Home-mort.gaf,'-. interest rates and other terms. Secondary market
yields on FHA-insured now-home mortgages continued upward to 6.77 per cent
in November, as pressures on capital markets increased further. Altogether,
the November advance was the largest •-- 12 b^sis points — in recent: months
and left the average within 4 basis points of the series high in November
of 1966 when discounts on such mortgages averaged 6„8 points0 Even so, the
further advance in yields on new corporate bonds in November was cortsid
erably greater and, as a result, the gross yLeld spread between FHA insured
mortgages and new corporate bonds narrowed to just 24 basis points, by far
the smallest in the history of the series.
Conventional first-mortgage interest rates on new homes, which
had changed little in recent months, also moved upward in November , by 10
basis points. At 6.b5 per cent, they were just under the November 1966
peak, based on data from the Federal Housing Administration, which reports
these rates rounded co the nearest five basis points. Comparable rates for
first mortgages on existing homes reached 6 J 0 per cent in NovemberL following a similar pattern of rise.
Nonrate terms on conventional first mortgages for single family
homes were generally little changed in November, according to the Federal
Home Loan Bank Board. Maturities averaged 24.2 years for loans on lew homes
and 21.5 years for loans on existing homes, with corresponding loanpto-value
ratios at 73.7 per ennt and 72.7 per cent, respectively. On balance, these
terms appeared to be somewhat below earlier peaks, though moderately higher
than a year earlier. I.'owever, reflecting increased lender concentration
on higher priced hcrr , average loan amounts were apparently at or pbove
earlier highs in Nov nr*>er.
Savings i :•
Net savings infxO's at all depositary-type
institutions totalled S i m i l l i o n in November. Commercial banks, with
net inflows of $970 :1 lion, experienced a considerable year-to-year
improvement, as the year tiefore they had suffered net withdrawals in November
Mutual savings banks, with net inflows of $321 million, also showed an .
improvement over their year-earlier experience. Savings and loan associations , however, n i i a somewhat reduced net increase in savings capital.
.c
Net inflows at these imtitutions totalled $575 million this Novembe
whereas in November 196b their net inflows totalled $614 million.
Stock prices. Common stock prices declined somewhat last week
in extremely heavy trading. At the close Friday, Standard and Poor's index
of 500 stocks stood at 95.94^ down 0.53 from the previous Friday. [Trading
volume averaged 12.3 million shares a day.

1/ Neither mortgage nor bond yields take into account servicing costs which are much
higher for mortgages than bonds. Generally, bonds pay interest semi-annua],ly;
mortgages, monthly. Mortgage yields, if computed as equivalent to a semi-annual
interest investment, would be slightly higher than given in the table.
y
Rased on FHA-field-office opinions about average bin 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
th minimum downpayments,
weighted by probable volume of transactions. Yields c omputed by FHA, assuniing prepayment period of 12 years for 25-year mortgages and 15 years for 30-year nortgagec.
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-yea,r mortgages thereafter.
5/ See note for Exhibit G.

If Compiled by Federal Home Loan Bank Board in cooperation with 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; and--in this exhibit—permanent loans which are coupled with
construction loans to owner-builders. Data are still in a developmental dtage and
may reflect seasonal influences which cannot yet be measured because the genes go
back only to end of 1962. Related 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 FHLBB-FDIC survey, and
are included--in the case of new home mortgage rates — in Exhibit F. Parts I and II.
2/ Fees and charges--expressed as a percentage of the principal mortgage amount—
include loan commissions, 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.

deducting from the actual reoffering yield the excess of the weekly average yield for seasoned
bonds of the appropriate industry-quality group over the composite average for seasoned Aaarated bonds (Moody's). Averages considered unrepresentative because of special characteristics
of the offerings included are denoted by an asterisk.

Note; For retrospective data on aggregate foreign corporate and government security
offerings in the United States see Exhibits I and U. There is no simple relationship
between the data shown in the Exhibit and that shown in Exhibits I and J because the latter
includes privately placed securities in the period in which funds are actually talcen down
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 takedown. Full
or partial takedown may take place both prior and subsequent to the date a placement is
reported.
