Gabriclle (Coco) Chanel, Bond market outlook By PAUL McGKATII Canadian Press Slaff Writer TORONTO (CP) The out- look for 1972 on the Canadian bond market is for continued growth and some moderation of prices and interest rates, say bond dealers and market observers. Last year's prediction that the booming market cf late 1970 would continue through 1971 proved true as the mar- ket registered one of the strongest years in a decade. "It started to rise and never looked one analyst commented. The upward swing of prices began late in 1970 and contin- ued through 1971 except for a minor setback in mid-August after announcement of strin- gent economic controls in the United States. More companies came to the market for financing this year than in recent years. Government and corporate financing for the first 11 months of 1971 totalled billion compared billion during the correspond- ing period of 1970. The market rallied during the first five months as capi- tal switched from the unstable stock market to take advan- tage of attractive bond rates. Long-term Canada bonds, which started the year at per cent, hit t'A per cent by mid-June. By mid-September they had dropped to 7ni per cent following the U.S. eco- nomic moves. MARKET CLOGGED Many companies adopted a waiting attitude after mid- year, delaying new issues until conditions settled. As a result, the market was clogged during the later months of the year with new issues. Dec. 15 was the largest delivery date in recent mar- ket a millieii Canada issue, a million Ontario issue and ?50- million issue from Quebec. The federal government's annual issue of Canada Sav- ings Bonds sold so well that for the first time since 1957 tbey were withdrawn before the end of the year, a sign that the yield was too attrac- tive and would conflict with government attempts to sof- ten interest rates. Sales to- talled a record billion. Most analysts are optimist for 1972. "There is reasonable optim- ism that with an improvement in the economic situation and a settling of the monetary dif- ficulties we should see a fur- ther moderation of prices and an improvement in interest one dealer com- mented. NEEDS SPARK Wood Gundy Securities Ltd., said: "All that is needed is a spark of confidence among investors, and it is at the in- ternational level where confi- dence is most lacking. In our view there is good reason for mounting expectancy." However, Merrill, Lynch Royal Securities Ltd., said in a mid-November review: "The prospects for large-scale corporate financing are not overly bright for the next three months. A combination of factors, including the Cana- dian tax reform legislation and the U.S. surcharge, are collectively having an adverse effect on new husiness plans." most influential dress de- signer of the 20lh century, died in Paris at age 87.
