US High Yield Bond Issuance Hit $4.8B Last Week; $13.4B YTD

It was another relatively quiet week in the U.S. high yield bond market, with six issues accounting for nearly $5 billion in volume. Investors continue to trend toward quality, with lower-rated issuers forced to pay-up significantly, according to LCD’s Joy Ferguson. (Indeed, a CCC rated deal for Presidio was scrapped today; that issue was shopped to investors at upwards of 11%.)

Year to date, US issuance lags, with some $13.4 billion booked so far in 2015, compared to $19.6 billion at this point in 2014, according to LCD. – Tim Cross
