The ABS primary market generated $20 billion in new issues last week, even as many in the market cooled their heels on summer vacations.

ABS investors had a good selection of credit card, auto and real estate deals to choose from last week, with a healthy number of multi-billion dollar deals. There was even an equipment deal from The CIT Group Inc. via Banc of America Securities and Barclays Capital. Totaling $590 million that deal priced its money-market tranche flat to Libor and its one-year tranche at four basis points over EDSF. The two-year tranche priced at swaps plus five basis points.

The credit card sector saw a $500 million, five-year deal from MBNA America Bank led by JPMorgan Securities and RBS Greenwich Capital. The deal priced at one basis point over swaps, on top of guidance. The only other credit card deal was a $1 billion offering from Chase Manhattan Bank, N.A., talked in the four basis points over one-month Libor range, that had yet to price as of press time.

The auto sector saw the pricing of two sizeable offerings. One a $1.1 billion offering from AmeriCredit Corp. led by Deutsche Bank Securities and Wachovia Securities. The FSA-wrapped deal priced its one-year tranche at five points over EDSF and the two-year tranche at seven basis points over swaps.

AmeriQuest Mortgage priced a $1.5 billion deal led by UBS with a one-year tranche, which priced at five basis points over one-month Libor. The two-year tranche priced at nine basis points over one-month Libor.
