    • S&P's index of municipal bonds fell 3.46% in November, writes Amey Stone in Barron's. That's the worst month since September 2008, when it fell 4.83%.
    • That interest rates rose sharply in November isn''t news, but S&P Dow Jones' J.R. Rieger says potential tax reform in which the highest marginal tax rate could be cut lowers the attractiveness of municipals.
    • Munis, says Rieger, are a retail-driven market, and thus sensitive to changes in sentiment and quick reversals in fund flows.

    • "We as municipal market participants should really be penalizing in some way, by almost not giving them any access to the market,” says Peter Hays, who oversees $119B as head of municipal bonds at BlackRock.
    • He notes Illinois is a state that refuses to pass a budget, and has the lowest funded ratio on their pension of any state.
    • The term "bond vigilantes" was invented with regards to investors forcing discipline on national governments, but they've been mostly absent from the $3.7T municipal market, despite a number of notable bankruptcy filings of late, as well as Puerto Rico's issues.
    • The lowest-rated U.S. state, Illinois this week announced plans to borrow $550M for capital projects on June 16. For now, investors are demanding an extra 183 basis points to hold Illinois 10-year debt vs. AAA munis. Still the yield is just 3.42% - that's 20 basis points lower than four years ago, when Illinois had a two-step higher credit rating than it does today.
