Citi still bearish on munis for H2

  • Acknowledging recent heavier municipal issuance of late has been met by solid demand, Citi nevertheless sees "significant reasons for concern," notably anemic muni bond fund flows. With issuance continuing on the heavy side, the team wonders about the capacity of the market to hold unless fund flows rebound. Toss in possibly rising Treasury yields and the effect could be magnified.
  • "We are not, however, suggesting that a very sharp selloff is likely," says Citi noting a huge amount of cash on the sidelines waiting to buy on any significant rebound in yields.
