Sorry, I do not have those. Each day, Moody's posts the prior day's yield rates, but does not save the history. If you want history, you have to pay for it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By the way, corresponding Bond Yield Averages for December 28 were (about) 2 basis points higher than 12/30/11. Corresponding rates for 12/23/11 were (about) 18-20 basis points higher than 12/30/11.

Some users/reviewers of these items have questioned whether these rates are appropriate for FAS87 purposes. I agree that Moody's rate may not be the best choice. However, I continue to post them as a reference, and not as a recommended discount rate.

If you desire to discuss what is an appropriate rate, you may contact me directly.
