1 Spread is the difference between the yield on a bond and that of a comparable U.S.

Treasury security.

2 Taxable Equivalent yield (TEY) assumes the tax

bracket shown. Income may be subject to state

and/or local taxes and/or the alternative minimum tax

(AMT).

NA: Not Available **Standard & Poor's (S&P) Corporate Bond Ratings: AA means high quality and subject to very low credit risk. A means upper-medium grade and subject to low credit risk. BBB means subject to moderate credit risk; these obligations are considered medium-grade and as such may possess certain speculative characteristics. BB is judged to have speculative elements; subject to substantial credit risk. GNMA yields are bond equivalent yields based on generic issues for varying coupons. They do not represent Consensus GNMA issues. Average life is a means to measure the time until all principal is returned for securities that return principal over time vs. in one lump sum. The yield and average life are calculated using a prepayment assumption that may or may not be met. The assumption used for the calculations is the median of 12 mortgage brokers` estimated prepayment speeds. Spread represents the implied risk premium an investor will receive over an equivalent investment in a U.S. Treasury security. For GNMAs, this spread is an option-adjusted spread as it factors in the series of embedded options inherent in mortgage-backed securities. Pre-refunded municipal bond is a bond that the issuer decided to redeem from the bondholder before its maturity date. After the issuer distributes the new bonds, it will then often purchase Treasury securities that mature around the same time as the original bonds. The interest accumulated from the Treasury securities pays off the interest from the pre-refunded bond. Insured municipal bonds are insured by policies written by commercial insurance companies. The insurance policy is intended to provide for the insurer to pay principal and interest payments to bondholders in the event the issuer defaults. For municipal yield curves, there is no "constant Treasury" in the 4-, 15- or 20-year maturity segment to facilitate this calculation. Notes on Index Returns: Index Returns reflect previous business day's closing value with the exception of Hedge Fund Index returns which have a one day lag. Three-year returns are annualized.
