Commercial mortgage-backed securities had a tough weak early on, with little buying or selling last Monday or Tuesday, but strengthened significantly towards the week's end with a "reasonably-priced" deal from Chase Securities, underwritten by Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Salomon Smith Barney.

The largest class in the $250 billion deal, a $392 million 10-year triple-A piece, sold at a yield of Libor plus 43 , or 150.25 over Treasurys. The five-year $125 million triple-A-rated piece sold at 31 basis points over Libor, or 117.25 over Treasurys.
