ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the performance of price indexes in the U.S as of May 16, 2003. The Bond Buyer yield indexes, as well as the 30-year Treasury bond yield, continued to fall in a week dominated by fears of deflation, anticipation that the Federal Reserve could begin buying back bonds, and expectations of a rate cut from the Federal Open Market Committee. Stocks rallied and municipal bond yields fell between two and five basis points. The Bond Buyer one-year note index fell six basis points to yield 1.08%, from last week's 1.14%. The revenue bond index fell 13 basis points to yield 4.88% from last week's 5.01%. The 20-bond index fell 15 basis points to yield 4.35% from last week's 4.50%. The 11-bond index fell 16 basis points to yield 4.26% from last week's 4.42%. The Bond Buyer 40 weekly average yield-to-maturity fell seven basis points to 4.88% from last week's yield of 4.95%.
