Welcome back.

Bank of America priced its first credit card securitization in nearly four years at tighter spreads to competitors even though the offering was more than doubled the size, to $1.75 billion from $750 million originally

The five-year notes, which are rated ‘AAA’ by Fitch Ratings and ‘Aaa’ by Moody’s Investors Service, pay one-month Libor plus 38 basis points.

By comparison, in January Discover priced an offering of triple-A rated five-year, notes at 43 basis points over one-month Libor.

Citibank was also in the market last month, but its offering was longer-dated and so not directly comparable. The triple-A notes had a weighted average maturity of 6.99 years and priced at 52 basis points over swaps.
