Corporate and municipal bond markets. During this, the last, week
in June, it would appear that over $1.0 billion of new corporate and municipal
securities will be offered to investors. The corporate volume will feature
$190 million of rights expirations in addition to a $125 million Illinois Bell
Telephone offering and a $100 million American Tobacco offering. The municipal
volume meanwhile will include $75 million of Chicago School District bonds and
$70 million of San Francisco B.A.R.T. bonds, and may possibly be augmented by
2 negotiated industrial revenue bonds totalling $113 million. In addition,
there will be a $35 million offering by the Province of Nova Scotia.

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

Yields on new and seasoned corporate bonds advanced last week,
sparking investor interest as they did so. With, in some cases, "record" yields,
last weeks offerings enjoyed a good reception. Price restrictions were terminated
meanwhile on several offerings made in previous weeks, and yields on these
issues subsequently advanced 8 to 16 basis points in free market trading.
Yields on municipals were also up last week, but new issues received
only a fair reception. The Blue List of advertised inventories rose.

Home mortgage interest rates and other loan terms. Secondary
market yields on certain FHA-insured new home mortgages rose in May, as early
reports had suggested. The turnaround, which followed 5 successive months
of decline, amounted to 16 basis points (to 6.44 per cent) and raised the
average yield on these mortgages to nearly 100 basis points above the plateau
which prevailed from the spring of 1963 through the summer of 1965.
Interest rates on conventional new and existing home loans (which
are rounded to the nearest 5 basis points) rose by 5 basis points each, as
estimated by the FHA. This rise also followed 5 successive months of interest
rate declines and brought the national average up to a level that was 65
basis points above the 1963-65 plateau.
The turnaround in mortgage yields reflects in large part continuing
pressures on the capital markets stemming from unusually heavy demands,
particularly from the corporate sector.
Yields on new Aaa corporate bonds
which had begun to turn up earlier, rose substantially, by 27 basis points,
in May reducing further the already narrowed spread between these bonds
and FHA mortgages sold in the secondary market to 78 basis points, nearly
matching the historical 1961-66 low. The increased pressure on the mortgage
markets came in spite of continued record net savings-inflows to financial
institutions in May. While commitment volume has increased, instead of buying
completed mortgages, which are still said to be in relatively short supply, mutual savings banks seem to be buying record amounts of corporate bonds,
while savings and loan associations continue to build up their liquidity
and repay debts to the Federal Home Loan Banks.
Conventional loan interest rates and other terms as reported by
the Federal Home Loan Bank Board series, which tends to lag the FHA series
and to be less reflective of current conditions in the market for new
commitments eased further during May. Interest rates declined on both new
and existing homes, mainly as a result of downward movements for savings and
loan association and commercial banks. Moreover, loan-to-value ratios and
maturities eased for both new and existing home loans, by generally larger
magnitudes than had been the case since the series was revised last December.
Stock prices. In active trading, common stock prices declined
somewhat last week. At Friday's close, the Standard & Poor's index of 500
stocks stood at 92.00, down 0.54 from the previous Friday. Trading volume
averaged 9.5 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-annually;
mortgages, monthly. Mortgage yields, if computed as equivalent to a semi-annual
;
;
interesjt investment, would be slightly higher than given in the. table.
2/ Based on FHA-fieId-office opinions about average bid prices in the private secondary .
{
i
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 thia/v
change in the series.
4/ FHA mortgage yield data are for 25-year mortgages through June 1961; 30-year mort- '
gages thereafter.
5/ See note for Exhibit G.

* New Series ;
1/ Compiled by Federal Home Loan Bank Boar^i 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 stage and
may reflect seasonal influences which cannot yet be measured because the series 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 avai1ab1e-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.

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 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 taken 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.
