Where have all the deals gone? Investors are beginning to wonder what has happened to all the disappearing debt. A Bank of America and Lehman Brothers financing for InfoNXX, a telephone directory service, launched last Tuesday and was pulled a day later. The same fate a few weeks ago befell IWCO, a Bear Stearns-led deal that also got pulled just days after syndication launched. Investors complained they didn't even have enough time to come up with a reason to criticize the credits before they were pulled.
