NEW YORK (PRWEB) December 09, 2019

Trepp, LLC, a leading provider of information, analytics, and technology to the structured finance, commercial real estate, and banking markets, has released its November 2019 US CMBS Delinquency Report. The full report can be accessed here:

The Trepp CMBS Delinquency Rate fell sharply in November, as the index hit another post-crisis low. The November reading is 2.34%, a month-over-month drop of 13 basis points.

The delinquency rate is down 99 basis points year over year. The delinquency rate started to fall after June 2017 when CMBS delinquencies totaled 5.75%. Since then, the rate has fallen in 25 of the last 29 months. Year-to-date, the rate is lower by 77 basis points. The all-time high of 10.34% was registered in July 2012.

“Although talks of a possible US recession have been surging, worries about the state of the global economy continue to grow, and trade issues are prevailing, the CMBS market has remained remarkably resilient,” said Trepp Senior Managing Director, Manus Clancy. “CMBS issuance continued to march on in November and CMBS delinquencies continued to drop, much like they have since July 2019.”

The largest rate drop among major property sectors in November belonged to the office space, with its delinquency reading dropping 53 basis points to 1.97%. The industrial delinquency rate also fell last month, by 46 basis points, reaching 2.00%. Retail delinquencies rose 16 basis points to 4.36%. The retail delinquency reading continues to be the worst-performing major property type.

The overall CMBS 2.0+ delinquency rate rose five basis points in November to 0.94%, while the percentage of CMBS 2.0+ loans in serious delinquency also rose by six basis points to 0.88% from October. The CMBS 1.0 delinquency rate dropped 199 basis points to 41.67% in November and the percentage of CMBS 1.0 debt that is seriously delinquent is also 41.67% (there are no legacy loans exactly 30 days delinquent), a drop of 121 basis points month over month.

Wisdom of the Ancients Hibiscus Tea Earns Top New Product Award From Progressive Grocer

GILBERT, Ariz. (PRWEB) December 09, 2019

Industry publication Progressive Grocer chose Wisdom of the Ancients® Organic Yerba Maté Hibiscus Tea as one of its 2019 Editors’ Picks Top New Product awards and Prevention magazine recognized SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Pumpkin Spice Sweet Drops™ in the top 10 of “35 Pumpkin Spice Foods That Are Actually Good for You.”

Wisdom Natural Brands®, based in Gilbert, Arizona, is the maker of Wisdom of the Ancients brand, one of the most respected herbal blends made from yerba maté, and SweetLeaf® Stevia, which has won more awards for taste and innovation than all low- or no-calorie sweeteners combined.

Progressive Grocer said Wisdom of the Ancients Organic Yerba Maté Hibiscus Tea “provides powerful nutrition … and makes a pleasant cup of tea.” One tester raved, “I enjoy the sweetened taste the stevia provides, and love how it creates a tea that is sweet without any sugar at all. It seems to boost my energy, so that must be the yerba maté, I imagine. It also helps my allergies, which must be the hibiscus.”

Wisdom of the Ancients produces its unique, proprietary blends with yerba maté leaves, which come from a robust tree found in the South American rainforest. As the soda industry declines, consumers are demanding beverages that give them a more natural option. Yerba maté leaves not only produce a delicious tea, but a beverage that is restorative and energizing while being USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified; those are two qualities that consumers are seeking. Consumers want organic products that bring them benefits. Wisdom of the Ancients’ Organic Yerba Maté invigorates, uplifts and energizes.

Prevention magazine noted that stevia originally comes from Paraguay and is often used to make beverages and teas. About Pumpkin Spice Sweet Drops, the publication wrote, “If you are looking to spice up your latte and watch your blood sugar, you may want to give this liquid stevia a try.”
