USD New Issues: Front-loaded supply hits the mark
IG new issuance closed out last week with a decent $26bn in primary deal pricings – just a smidgen over the roughly $20-$25bn that syndicate desks were initially expecting. Much of the issuance was front-loaded as just over $18bn came on Monday and Tuesday alone with names like Truist, P&G, Keybank, BNS, Bank of NY Mellon and M&T headlining the opening days.
Week over week, IG corporate spreads narrowed 4bps to 125bps while high yield spreads narrowed 12bps to 423bps, according to the ICE BofA Masters Indices.
For the upcoming week, syndicate desks are once again looking for roughly $20-$25bn in new IG supply, with supply corralled to three days this week – Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, with Wednesday’s FOMC a likely obstacle, sources say. The January issuance tally currently stands at just over $136bn and is on course to surpass the $142bn that came to market last January.
