Companies sold $28.9B in bonds in the first two trading days this week, the busiest two-day period since March 6 and more than doubling the $13.4B issued in the past two weeks. Issuers have been eager to take advantage of sub-3% rates on investment grade bonds; this week, Wellpoint (WLP) and Principal Financial (PFG) are two of the largest.
