    Bond insurer nears Puerto Rico utility debt deal -court filing

    An agreement in principle between a bond insurer and the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA), disclosed in a late Tuesday court filing, could move a deal to restructure about $9 billion of the bankrupt utility's debt closer to the finish line. Assured Guaranty Corp is in the "final stages" of documenting and executing an agreement with PREPA and a group of bondholders, who reached a deal with the utility in July covering more than $3 billion of debt, according to a motion filed in U.S. District Court in Puerto Rico. The so-called definitive restructuring support agreement (RSA) would cover about half of PREPA's outstanding bonds.

    Court ruling in Puerto Rico bankruptcy fans revenue bond fears

    A decision this week by a U.S. Appeals Court in a lawsuit related to Puerto Rico's bankruptcy raises concerns over the payment of municipal bonds backed by specific revenues during future Chapter 9 cases, Fitch Ratings said on Thursday. The Boston-based First Circuit court on Tuesday determined that municipalities are not required to make payments on debt secured by special revenues while bankruptcy proceedings are ongoing, although municipalities can voluntarily opt to do so. "The ruling, by stating such payments are optional, creates uncertainty about full and timely payment of special revenue obligations during bankruptcy of the related municipality," Fitch said.

    U.S. Lipper Award winners bet big on Brexit, global slowdown

    Japanese automakers, a U.S. municipal bond insurer caught up in the Puerto Rican debt scandal, and UK's largest online classified advertising site for used cars are among the top picks by equity fund managers who received a U.S. Lipper Fund Award in New York on Thursday night. The wide swath of investment ideas partly reflects the unsteady global stock markets, which have swung from the edge of a bear market during the final 2018 quarter to a nearly 10 percent gain in the new year after the Federal Reserve indicated it would slow its pace of interest rate hikes. Without a U.S.-China trade deal or the exact path of Brexit finalized, global stocks could remain volatile throughout the year, fund managers said.
