No Surprises on RY.PR.E First Day of Trading

This was pretty much a carbon copy of the BMO.PR.J opening last Wednesday. Volume was 313,249 trading in a range of 24.85-95 – which was below the issue price, which is eventually going to annoy the buyers of these new issues!

It closed at 24.90-92, 17×338, and looks reasonably attractive¬†there. When I look at the curvePrice according to the yieldCurve calculated for taxable accounts, I get:

RY.PR.E Taxable Curve Price
Component Value
Price due to base-rate 23.30
Price due to short-term 0.04
Price due to long-term 0.49
Price due to Liquidity 1.48
Price due to error -0.03
Total 25.28

At the closing bid of $24.90, the issue has a pre-tax bid-yieldToWorst of 4.53%, based on a limitMaturity.

The issue has been added to the PerpetualDiscount index.

The securityCode for this issue is A45014 and a reorgDataEntry has been processed to reflect the change from the preIssue code of P87000.

Update (for linking!) 2007-01-27 : This issue was announced on January 10.

  7. […] This is actually rather nice, having so many issues that are so similar (SunLife, Scotia, Royal and BMO) … I forsee many happy hours in the years ahead, swapping between them in a low-risk dividend-capture strategy. […]

  9. […] From my Tier 1 Capital notes: It is also interesting that Royal has used up about half its available room. Given that their Tier 1 Ratio at year-end significantly lagged the competition, I suspect that there will be more opportunistic issuances in addition to RY.PR.D and RY.PR.E. […]
