Oreninc Index Continues Modest Growth

The Oreninc Index continued its slow upward trend for the week ending May 8, 2014. Total dollars announced exploded to $165.2m, an eight-week high. Brokered dollars announced was $90.8m on four deals, a two-week low; bought dollars announced rose to $90m on three deals, a nine-week high. Though not an overwhelming jump, it is still nice to see a positive trend, especially compared to the previous month. That being said, it would be surprising if this type of growth continues into the summer.
