(BUSINESS WIRE) Edwards’ newly launched range of single stage oil sealed rotary vane pumps is a flexible vacuum solution providing highly stable vacuum performance.

GENEVA - Monday, May 26th 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Since late 2013, international bond markets have been offering an unusual and rare arbitrage opportunity between developed and emerging market (EM) corporate bonds. Currently, as EM issuers, as rated by Standard & Poor’s, display a more stable rating compared to their European and US peers, by switching from BB rated eurozone bonds to BBB rated EM bonds, investors can not only reduce their credit risk significantly but also take advantage of a 98 bp spread (as of early May 2014).

Furthermore, EM corporate bonds have performed well in the year so far, shaking off various adversities including the on-going dispute between Russia and Ukraine, domestic political turmoil in Venezuela and somewhat jittery stock markets. Both investment-grade and high-yield rated bonds are in positive territory and the pick-up in primary market activity attests to sustained market momentum. Corporate bond spreads in EM ...
