Puerto Rico lifts municipal bond sales, but issuance still low WASHINGTON: Puerto Rico's $3.5 billion bond sale early this month helped lift issuance of municipal debt in March, but supply is still running behind last year, Thomson Reuters data released on Monday showed. Municipal bond sales totaled $27.48 billion, spread over 673 deals, the largest monthly issuance since last July and nearly twice the $14.57 billion sold in 660 deals in February. Still, that was 12.4 percent below March 2013, when $31.35 billion came to market in 936 deals. Moreover, the total for the first quarter of 2014, $60.27 billion in 1,941 sales, was 26 percent lower than issuance in the first quarter of 2013, $81.3 billion spread over 2,782 sales. It was also the lowest first-quarter total since 2011. Even with the Puerto Rico sale, which was almost entirely refunding, issuance hit the lowest level for March since 2011. In March, bond refundings totaled $17.89 billion in 317 deals, ...

US bond prices rise on weak payrolls data NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices rose on Friday with benchmark yields falling to their lowest in about three weeks, as government data showed job growth unexpectedly slowed in December, raising some doubts about the economic recovery.
