Anyone see call notice for PRIF-D, callable 3/31/2022?
Price near par lately…
“Notice of Redemption will be provided not more than 60 and not less than 30 calendar days prior to the date fixed for redemption in such Notice of Redemption, which we refer to as the Redemption Date” That means the answer should be NO – nobody’s seen a call notice for PRIF-D callable 3/31/2022.

5%? There are dark days ahead of us!
Just last year (March 2021) with rates at rock bottom they issued a note, OXLCL, at 6.75% with a maturity of 2031 and 1st call in 2024.
Now with rates probably starting to go up we get a 5% with the only advantage being an earlier maturity date of 4 years?
What changed to allow them to get this one off at 5%? Does that maturity date really make that big of a difference???
Zestious–yes 5% for this level of quality is pure silliness
