Equity values and credit spreads: the inflation effect. Equity values and credit spreads: the inflation effect. A slowdown in consumer prices reduces short-term interest rates but does not immediately reduce earnings growth by the same rate, thus increasing the discounted present value of future earnings. The predictive power score is a. First, our model matches well the post nominal upward-sloping U.S. Treasury yield curve. Second, consistent with our model's implication, variance risk premium based on the U.S. interest rate derivatives data emerges as a strong predictor for short-horizon Treasury excess returns, above and beyond the predictive power of other popular factors.

Although their predictive power is somewhat limited, these spreads indicate some concern about inflation over the short run. Suggested citation: "Interest Rates," Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Economic Trends, no. , pp. 06, This difference between that corporate bond yield and U.S. Treasury yield is also known as the “spread” between corporate interest rates and U.S. Government interest rates. At the peak in , the spread for BBB rated companies was around %. In other words, those companies had to borrow at a rate % HIGHER than the U.S. Government.

This was a census study of all registered 43 commercial banks in Kenya and relied heavily on documentary secondary data for 6 year study period (). The study found that interest rates spreads are higher for larger banks than.

A number of interest rates and interest rate spreads have been found to be useful in prediction the course of the economy. We compare the predictive power of some of these suggested interest rate variables for nine indicators of real activity and the inflation rate.

Downloadable. Economists have long understood that financial market variables contain considerable information about the future of the economy. Recently a number of researchers have pointed out that interest rates and interest rate spreads--that is, differences between interest rates on alternative financial assets--can be effective predictors of the economy.

On the Predictive Power of Interest Rates and Interest Rate Spreads This finding raises a number of questions, possibly the most important being why interest rates and spreads predict the course of the economy so well. The author's tentative conclusion is that the spread between commercial paper and Treasury bill rates has historically been.

We compare the predictive power of some of these suggested interest rate variables for nine indicators of real activity and the inflation rate. Our results are consistent with those of Stock and Watson () and Friedman and Kuttner (), who found that.

Mishkin a.b.c, * Cited by: Because of this trend, credit spreads often move ahead of the economy, offering the intelligent investor some predictive power they can use to profit and avoid losses. Changes in. Numerous empirical studies for the U. demonstrate that interest rate spreads (measured as the difference between long-and short-term nominal interest rates) are good predictors of future.

Again, we don’t see any support for the hypothesis that spreads systematically rise with interest rates. Depending on the period and on whether you look at levels or changes, you can see a slightly stronger relationship of the Federal Funds rate with either bank lending rates of funding costs; but none of these differences would pass a standard significance test.

Figure 3 shows some persistence of bank spreads, which may indicate low competition in the banking industry. Interest rate parity is the fundamental equation that governs the relationship between interest rates and currency exchange rates.
