    Weekly Market Outlook: Capital Allocation and Low Bond Yields Reflect Aging Upturn

    Not too long ago the value of mergers and acquisitions involving US businesses moving 12-month sum sank by -19% from February 2016's record high of $3.485 trillion to November 2016's most recent low of $2.811 trillion. This measure of M&A has since recovered to the $3.47 trillion of the 12-months-ended April 2017 and seems destined to soon establish a new zenith.

    Weekly Market Outlook: Inflation's Bad Breadth May Help Contain Interest Rates

    Not too long ago, the high-yield bond spread swelled and the projected default rate soared. However, that intensification of credit stress would be quickly reversed mostly because debt repayment problems were largely confined to the oil and gas industry. In other words, the late 2015 and early 2016 worsening of corporate credit conditions lacked enough breadth to endanger both financial stability and the business cycle upturn.
