“Largest municipal bond deals coming from Texas, Colo. and Calif. “
By Chip Barnett, Christine Albano, July 24, 2020

Municipal yields held steady as the market awaits large Texas and California deals. The new-issue calendar features billion dollar deals from the Southwest and West regions of the country.

The cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas’ (A1/A/A+/AA) are coming to market for the second week in a row, this time with a taxable sale.

“Cheap deals where participants found additional spread continue to get oversubscribed,” Burgess said Friday.

As the market prepares for the $1.13 billion Dallas, Texas, deal and the pricing of over $1 billion of California Department of Water Resources revenue bonds, the market will be eager to participate.
