Ukrainian Eurobonds Weekly (May 13-20, 2010)
Last week, quotes for CDS for Ukrainian governmental debt increased by 102.1 basis points (or by 17.8%), from 572.8 b.p. to 674.9 b.p. This increase arose from increasing pessimism about the solution to European governments’ debt problems; thus CDS for Russian and Argentinean governmental debt also rose , by 37.0% and 40.9%, respectively.

Ukrainian Eurobonds Weekly (May 06 - 13, 2010)
Last week, quotes for CDS in the Ukraine experienced a drop of 62.4 basis points – from 635.2 b.p. to 572.8 b.p. Such a drop is connected with news about increasing optimism about the solution to the Greek problems; thus CDS for Russian, Kazakhstani and Argentinean government debt declined as well, by 59.8 b.p., 60.1 b.p. and 147.3 b.p. respectively.

Ukrainian domestic bonds – investments for an added value
After a recent 3-month rally on both Ukrainian equity and debt markets (the UX Index increased by 62% in the past 3 months, while yield on the Ukraine-11 Eurobond issue YTM dropped from 11.1% to 5.3%) we still see the opportunities for both aggressive and conservatively-oriented investors.

Ukrainian Eurobonds Weekly (April 15 - 21, 2010)
Last week, quotes for CDS in Ukraine experienced a significant increase of 38.1 basis points – from 504.9 b.p. to 543.0 b.p. We think that this correction, after the recent rally, is connected with investor’s attitudes towards fixed income, given the background of increasing of apprehensions of Greece default.
