s . ^ j k s e c u r i t y financing to obtain new c a p i t a l was l i g h t l a s t
.wee^yhichj was shortened by two pa rtia l holidays—Election Day and
Jiy~while i t i s expected to be very substantial t h i s week.
During the week ending November 10, only two large State and l o c a l bond
i s s u e s aggregating $2li m i l l i o n were sold while no large corporate securi t y i s s u e s were offered. This week, ending November 17, f i v e corporate
security i s s u e s aggregating $lhh m i l l i o n are scheduled; seven State and
l o c a l i s s u e s with par value of #182 m i l l i o n are d e f i n i t e l y on the calendar
and i t i s p o s s i b l e that one of the two large i s s u e s scheduled f o r negotiated
s a l e some time t h i s month w i l l be p u b l i c l y o f f e r e d .
Bond y i e l d s . Changes i n bond y i e l d s were mixed and minor l a s t
week. Yields on corporate bonds declined one b a s i s point while y i e l d s on
long-term U. S. Government bonds rose one b a s i s point. State and l o c a l
government bond y i e l d s were unchanged.
Short- and intemediate-terro i n t e r e s t r a t e s . Yields on Treasury
b i l l s and 3-5 year U. S. Government bonds increased l a s t week. Yields on
3-month and 6-month Treasury b i l l s rose 12 and 3 basis points, r e s p e c t i v e l y
while y i e l d s on intermediate tern U. S. Government o b l i g a t i o n s increased
two b a s i s points. The average r a t e of i n t e r e s t on Federal funds rose 58
basis points to 2.88 per cent from the revised average of the previous
week. The average rate of i n t e r e s t paid on directly placed finance company
paper with 90-179 day maturity declined one b a s i s point to 2.69 per cent,
r e f l e c t i n g the f u l l e f f e c t of the rate r e v i s i o n of the previous week.
Other short- and intermediate-term i n t e r e s t rates were unchanged.
Bond referenda, while i t i s s t i l l too early to have f i n a l data
on a l l State and l o c a l govemmmt bond referenda submitted to voters in
the November 7 general e l e c t i o n , preliminary information i n d i c a t e s that
l e s s than one-half of the d o l l a r volume submitted was approved. The $1.3
b i l l i o n of bonds submitted was considerably l e s s than l a s t year as i s
usually the case in an "off-year" e l e c t i o n , but only s l i g h t l y l e s s than
i n 1959• The low percentage of approvals t h i s year r e f l e c t s primarily
disapproval of a #500 m i l l i o n New York State higher education authorization
which involved a t t i t u d e s toward State aid t o non-public c o l l e g e s . Special
considerations of various types r e s u l t i n g in disapproval were involved in
other years shown in the t a b l e on the following page when the approval r a t i o
was r e l a t i v e l y low.
Stock prices. Common stock p r i c e s , as measured by Standard and
Poor's composite index of 500 s t o c k s , rose on balance by more than two
per cent to another new high l a s t week, c l o s i n g on November 10 a t 71.07.
The average daily trading volume, a t b.8 m i l l i o n shares, was the highest
since mid-May.
