Oreninc Index Jumps to Seven-Week High

 

 

 

 

 

The Oreninc Index jumped to its highest level in seven weeks for the week ending May 1, 2014. This is the first significant jump the Index has made in any direction in six weeks. Total dollars raised exploded to $131.5m on 30 deals, a four-week high. Brokered and bought deals both jumped up, going to $102.2m and $37.2m, seven- and three-week highs respectively. While only one week, it’s good to see some movement in the financing markets heading into May. That being said, don’t hold your breath on any significant run of increased Index performance, especially as we approach the summer months.
