IN THE UNITED STATES
Review

of

Capital Markets in April)

Public security financing to obtain new capital was in fairly
substantial volume last week, but is expected to be in somewhat more
moderate volume this week. During the week ending May 3, a $25 million
corporate issue was offered, four large State and local government
bond issues totaling $159 million were sold and the Government of Japan
sold $28 million in bonds. This week, ending May 10, one $16 million
corporate issue and two State and local issues with par value of $137
million are scheduled for offering. In addition, the American Telephone
and Telegraph Company has scheduled a $250 million bond issue to refund
outstanding securities and a $160 million secondary distribution of
Gulf Oil Corporation common stock will be made for the benefit of
selling stockholders.
Bond yields. Yields on Aaa-rated State and local government
bonds rose one basis point to 3.01 per cent last week. Yields on other
seasoned, long-term bonds were stable.
Average yields on new corporate bonds, adjusted to an Aaa
basis, were 4.22 per cent last week, eight basis points below the
average for the previous week.
Short- and intermediate-term interest rates. Rates on Treasury
bills rose a basis point last week, but yields on 3-5 year U. S.
Government issues fell three basis points. The average effective Federal
funds rate was 3.00 per cent, slightly above the revised rate for the
previous week. Other rates were unchanged.

FNMA secondary market operations. Sales in the secondary
market by the Federal National Mortgage Association continued upward
in March and, at $166.4 million, were very near the historic high
reached in May of 1958. Purchases by FNMA turned up in March, to
$21.9 million, b u t — a s in the case of offerings—the aggregate rise
was moderate and from an unusually low level. While reservations for
sales to private investors by FNMA have tended downward since midFebruary, the level remains quite high.
Reflecting the pressure on lenders for mortgage outlets as
savings flows have increased further this year, sales to private
investors from the "special assistance" portfolio of FNMA have also
risen along with FNMA's regular secondary market selling activity.
In addition to sales by FNMA, sales by the Veterans Administration of
mortgages acquired from earlier foreclosures have continued well above
earlier expectations.
Stock prices. Common stock prices, as measured by Standard and
Poor's composite index of 500 stocks, edged up further last week to close
at 70.03 on May 3. This was the highest level since late March 1962 and




•2 -

was within 4 per cent of the December 1961 high. Trading was active,
averaging 4.6 million shares a day, but was 0.6 million shares less than
the previous week.
Estimated May security financing. Corporate security financing
to obtain new capital is expected to be in rather light volume in May but
State and local government bond sales should continue to be fairly
substantial.
New capital security financing by corporations is expected
to total $650 million in Hay, almost one-fourth less than in April and
one-seventh smaller than a year earlier. Large issues currently scheduled
for public offering amount to $149 million. Also on the calendar, is a
substantial volume of public financing to retire outstanding securities,
including a $250 million bond issue by AT&T.
Sales of long-term bonds by State and local governments are
estimated at $850 million in May, the same as in April, but 7 per cent
less than a year earlier. Large issues on the calendar have a par value
of $447 million.
Capital markets in April. The capital markets were under
considerable pressure during most of April and bond yields rose. Security
financing to obtain new capital by both corporations and State and local
governments was in substantial volume. In addition, the Treasury sold its
second long-term bond issue through competitive bidding--a $300
million issue of 31-year bonds bearing a 4-1/8 per cent coupon; this
issue, unlike the January offering, met indifferent demand and price
restrictions were terminated late in the month with approximately onehalf of the issues yet unsold.
Corporate security financing to obtain new capital totaled
$850 million in April, about one-sixth less than in March (which included
an unusually large volume of private placements) and one-fourth smaller
than the very substantial April volume last year. Large issues for new
capital sold publicly amounted to $409 million, the largest total since
October; this was comprised of $263 million of nonconvertible bonds and
$146 million of stock. The stock total was the largest since April
1962, due primarily to the expiration of rights on a $107 million common
stock issue of the Consolidated Edison Company, the largest such offering
since the $965 million American Telephone and Telegraph Company issue
of April 1961. Securities sold to refund outstanding issues added about
$60 million to the April total.
Yields on seasoned, Aaa-rated corporate bonds rose about
four basis points during the month to around 4.22 per cent, the highest
since around the beginning of the year. Yields on new corporate
bonds, adjusted to an Aaa basis, also rose and, at 4.30 per cent late
in the month, were 10-15 basis points higher than the general range
that had prevailed earlier in the year and about the highest since last
summer.




•3

Price restrictions on unsold syndicate balances of a number
of new issues originally offered in March were terminated during the
month and yields on these issues rose five basis points or more.
Most new issues sold early in April moved very slowly, but those sold
later in the month at higher yield levels met a much more favorable
retail reception. Unsold syndicate balances, therefore, were somewhat
smaller at the end of April than a month earlier.
Bond sales by State and local governments totaled $850 million
in April, one-tenth less than in March but little changed from a year
earlier. Yields on seasoned, Aaa-rated State and local government
bonds rose seven basis points to 3.00 per cent at end of the month,
their highest level since last fall, except for a brief period early
in March. Investor interest in new offerings was selective until
close to the end of the month. As a result, dealers' advertised
inventories of unsold securities rose to a record high of $681 million
shortly after mid-month, nominally above the previous peak of last
May, before falling $50 million to $630 million at the end of the
month.
Common stock prices advanced sharply further during April, in
very active trading. Prices, as measured by Standard and Poor's
composite index of 500 stocks, increased five per cent during the
month to close at 69.80 on April 30. This was the highest level since
late March 1962 and only four per cent below the December 1961 high.
Trading volume averaged 5.1 million shares a day, 1.5 million shares
more than in March and the highest monthly average since April 1961.
More detailed information concerning recent capital market
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.
