List its 1) credit ratings, 2) coupon rate, 3) yield-to-maturity, 4) dollar price, 5) maturity date, 6) trade date and 7) special features such as call provisions. Go to the Emma home page and click on “Advanced Search”. At a minimum select state; under “Security Info” Official Statement; and other under “Disclosure”. Scroll down and select any municipal bond that looks interesting. Click on “official statement” and “ratings.” If no official statement or bond ratings (S&P or Fitch) are available, try another bond. Click on trade activity and select a recent “customer bought” trade to complete the assignment. Maturity Date (#5), Coupon (#2) listed as “interest rate,” Price (#4), Yield-to-Maturity (#3), and Trade Date (#6) are found on this page. You will need to go to the “Official Statement” tab to uncover Call Provisions (#7). The key word to look for is “redemption.” You will need to go to “Ratings” tab to find the Credit Ratings (#1).
