Business digest
TREASURY AUCTION: Interest rates on short-term Treasury securities were mixed in Wednesday's auction. The Treasury Department sold $14-billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 1.72 percent, down from 1.73 percent last week. An additional $15-billion was sold in six-month bills at a rate of 1.85 percent, up from 1.84 percent. The new discount rates understate the actual return to investors: 1.752 percent for three-month bills and 1.893 percent for a six-month bill. In a separate report, the Federal Reserve said that the average yield for one-year constant maturity Treasury bills rose to 2.23 percent last week from 2.17 percent the previous week.
