Municipals continued to outperform in April, with yields falling by up to 16 basis points (bps) compared to U.S. Treasury yields decreasing by up to 9 bps.

Key Points:

• Muni Mutual Funds again added to record inflows for the month
• Demand has been fueled by rating agencies revising sector outlooks to the upside, Federal Stimulus funds making their way to issuers, and plans for tax hikes.
