(Including Review of Capital Markets in February)

Public security financing to obtain new capital was in rather
light volume last week but is expected to be more substantial this week.
During the week ending March 1, no large corporate security issues
were offered but two large State and local government bond issues
amounting to $43 million and a $30 million bond issue of the Kingdom
of Denmark were sold. This week, ending March 8, two corporate issues
totaling $55 million and five State and local issues with par value of
$97 million are scheduled for offering.
Bond yields. Yields on seasoned, long-term bonds either rose
or were stable last week. Aaa-rated State and local government bond
yields rose four basis points to 3.02 per cent, their highest level
since last September, -while yields on U. S. Government bonds increased
two basis points to 2.94 per cent, also their highest level since
September. Yields on corporate bonds and on Baa-rated State and local
government bonds were stable.
Average yields on new corporate bonds, adjusted to an Aaa
basis, were 4.14 p< . cent last week, five basis points below the
average for the previous week.
Short- and intermediate-term interest rates. Changes in rates
on Treasury bills and on 3-5 year U. S. Government obligations were
mixed last week. Rates on 3-month bills were stable but 6-month bill
rates dropped two basis points. Yields on intermediate-term Treasury
obligations rose four basis points. The average effective Federal funds
rate was 3.00 per cent for the fourth consecutive week. Other rates
were unchanged.
Mortgage recordings. Seasonally adjusted nonfarm mortgage
recordings of $20,000 or less continued to change little in November,
the latest month for which data on a three-month moving average basis
are available. The monthly rate of $2,939 million remained slightly
below the peak reached in July and was 6 per cent above a year earlier.
Government-underwritten mortgages accounted for 25 per cent
of unadjusted total recordings in December. This.was very near the
November share and, continued somewhat above the proportion a year
earlier.
Stock prices. Common stock prices were off sharply in
moderately active trading last week. Prices, as measured by Standard
and Poor's composite index of 500 stocks, fell almost three per cent
to close at 64.10 on March 1. Trading volume averaged 3.8 million
shares a day, 0.4 million shares less than the average for the
previous week.

March security estimate. Security financing to obtain new
capital by corporations is expected to be rather light in March, but
bond financing by State and local governments is expected to be in
large volume.
New security financing by corporations is expected to total
$650 million in March, slightly less than the revised February estimate
and one-fifth less than in March 1962. Large issues currently scheduled
for sale this month total $142 million.
Bond sales of State and local governments are estimated at
$0.9 billion in March, two-sevenths above the revised estimate for
February and two-fifths greater than a year ago. Large issues
currently on the calendar amount to $458 million.
Capital markets in February. New security financing by
corporations was in fairly light volume in February, while bond sales
by State and local governments were moderate. Yields on corporate
bonds changed little, but those on State and local government bonds
rose somewhat.
Corporate security financing to obtain new capital totaled
$0.7 billion in February, the same as in January but close to one-fifth
less than a year earlier. Large issues for new capital sold publicly
amounted to $186 million; nonconvertible bond sales totaled $125
million, the smallest volume since last September, while a $35 million
convertible bond issue and a $26 million common stock issue sold during
the month were the largest issues of their type sold since August and
September, respectively. Several large issues, with substantial unsold
balances carried over from January, were released from syndicate price
restrictions early in the month and quickly distributed with only
small reductions in price. New issues sold early in February met with
very favorable investor demand, but several large issues sold in the
last half of the month met with indifferent reception and were still
in the process of distribution at the month-end. Therefore, syndicate
balances, although moderate, were not much smaller at the end of
February than a month earlier.
Yields on seasoned Aaa-rated corporate bonds fell two basis
points further to 4.19 per cent (daily basis) at the start of the month,
the lowest level since April 1959, where they remained throughout the
month. Yields on new corporate bonds, adjusted to an Aaa basis, rose somewhat early in February but zhey declined during the last half of the month.
Some of this fluctuation, however, reflected special characteristics
of the issues sold rather than a change in interest rate levels.
New capital bond issues of State and local governments
totaled $0.7 billion in February, the same as in January but almost
two-fifths less than the record February volume last year. Dealers
encountered little difficulty in distributing most new issues, in
contrast to the previous month, and were also able to make moderate
reductions in their advertised inventory of unsold securities which
declined almost $60 million to the still substantial total of $510
FRASER month-end. "

Yields on lower-grade seasoned State and local government
bonds changed little during the month, but yields on Aaa-rated issues
rose five basis points to 3.02 per cent at the month-end, increasing
a single basis point at the start of the month and four basis points
last week.
Common stock prices fell moderately in active trading during
February. Prices, as measured by Standard and Poor's composite index
of 500 stocks, declined almost three per cent on balance to close
at 64.29 on February 28. Prices moved irregularly higher through midmonth, but then fell off rather sharply. This was the first monthly
decline since stock prices began the advance last October which had
recovered two-thirds of the loss sustained between their December 1961 high
and last June's low. Trading volume averaged 4.2 million shares a
day, 0.4 million shares below the January average but 0.2 million
shares more than in December.

developments is presented in the attached exhibits.

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 subsequent to the date a placement
is reported.
