Oreninc Index Remains Strong in Holiday-Shortened Week

The Oreninc Index remained strong in the holiday-shortened week ending July 3, 2014. This week’s performance is characterized by good numbers, although it clearly does not match the previous week as indicated by a slew of two-week lows. Total dollars announced fell to $93.6m, a two-week low. Brokered dollars announced dropped to $36.5m, a two-week low, and bought dollars announced dropped to $32m, also a two-week low.

While financing activity remained up this week, deal-making subsided, which is unsurprising given the holidays in the US and Canada. It is a good sign that companies are able to raise cash in the first week of summer; a couple more weeks like the previous two, and the stronger weeks will become less of a surprise and more of an expected performance.
