Bond Rates Still Low Enough to Save Companies $$



August 12, 2013 – Comments (4)

The dollar value of last week's new corporate bond issues was on the low side at $24 billion, but some of the issues were interesing. 

Some refinancing, including a couple that didn't say but do have paper maturing soon.  Two big oil companies, a REIT, a medical device firm and some little company from Omaha run by a guy named Warren were in the mix.

I included a borrower with a credit rating near the low end of junk to show the difference in rates beween top-tier borrowers and the high-risk, high-reward end of the spectrum.

As always, questions or comments are welcome here or at the article.

Hey Russ, just a heads up. There's a bug where I can't rec the articles using IE. Firefox is fine, but how many people will take the time to switch browsers.

Oh Firefox so owns because you can block ads.  A side point,  that is why I still have my doubts about FB long term.  If browsers can block ads why would advertisers pay?
