Oreninc Index Falls Sharply

The markets pushed the Oreninc index to a four-week low for the week ending February 7, 2013.  Following the previous week’s positive performance, which included a number of large underwritten deals, this week had only two underwritten offerings making up 26% of announced money, a four-week low. It seems the strength of last week was more of an anomaly than the new norm, as brokers continue to sit on the sideline.
