    • Cisco Systems (CSCO) has raised $8B in the largest corporate-bond sale so far this year and the biggest for investment-grade notes since Verizon sold $49B worth of debt in September.
    • Cisco plans to use the money to finance stock buybacks and dividends, and to repay $3.75B of notes that mature this year.
    • Cisco sold debt in seven parts with fixed- and floating-rate securities, with yields ranging from 1.1% to 3.625%.
    • Moody's rates Cisco at A1 and S&P at AA-.
    • While Cisco "hasn't had smooth sailing from the equity perspective," says money manager Thomas Chow, "there's overwhelming demand...for well-known issuers with strong fundamentals." Cisco "has a large cash balance and a dominant position in product lines that aren’t going to disappear overnight," Chow adds. (PR)

    • With interest rates on the rise, corporate treasurers are shelving plans to raise money, with just $61B in corporate debt issued globally thus far in August - on course for the weakest month since 2008, according to Dealogic. In August 2012, $121B was raised.
    • Corporate bond issuance was running at a fast pace earlier this year, but Apple's $17B April offering in hindsight looks very much like a bell-ringer.
    • Bankers are hopeful going forward, with one noting a backup in the pipeline. "The market has generally re-priced on the back of higher yields and we fully expect investors to have appetite at new levels."

    There are more losses ahead for corporate paper (LQD), says JPMorgan's Jan Loeys, noting corporates replaced Treasurys as the favored way to get exposure to duration. "Potential buyers don't have the same capacity to absorb credit risk." Credit spreads didn't protect against higher rates during the recent bond bust - corporates lost 3.4% since May 22 vs. a 2.6% decline in Treasurys, according to Bloomberg's Lisa Abramowicz.
