The commercial paper market is generally accessible only to companies with very high credit quality, as only such companies can find buyers for their commercial paper.
For example, if an issuer's credit quality deteriorates and is downgraded from the top tier to the second tier, even though the default risk in its commercial paper is still minuscule, many previous investors may refuse to roll over the issuer's maturing commercial paper.
In the aggregate, if deterioration in the credit quality of companies in the highest credit tier is widespread, the size of the commercial paper market will decline quickly.
The Appendix Chart provides evidence that the average interest rate on 30-day commercial paper appears to follow the federal funds rate closely, and the spread between the two rates seems to have little relation to credit quality.
Two schools of thought offer explanations for why very high-quality commercial paper dominates the market.
The other school believes that the primary reason only very high-quality commercial paper can be issued is that investors' demand for commercial paper is concentrated on very high quality issues.
1) This decline in nonfinancial commercial paper contrasts sharply with developments in the market for financial commercial paper.
3) Moody's Investor Service estimated that 80 percent of the commercial paper issues rated by the company were in the top tier in late 2000, and another 17 percent were in the second tier.
5) In addition, Qwest and WorldCom were downgraded from their second-tier rating in 2001 and 2002, which virtually shut them out of the commercial paper market.
9) Saidenberg and Strahan investigate the commercial paper market during that period.
Calomiris and others provide empirical evidence that relates the demand for commercial paper to firms' inventories.
