The article reports on the increase in the trading of Puerto Rico bond in the secondary market in the U.S. The increased trading is driven by the enactment of a fiscal 2007 budget by the commonwealth. Analysts claim that the Puerto Rico market is stable with a spread of 10 to 15 basis points on insured bonds from commonwealth issuers. Compared to bonds issued by states, the Puerto Rico bond trades higher.
