UPDATE 1-U.S. 30-year mortgage rates rise from 5-month lows -Freddie Mac

 (Add background, table)
    NEW YORK, April 27 (Reuters) - U.S. 30-year mortgage rates
rose in the latest week, rebounding from five-month lows in step
with a rise in bond yields, following the first round of the
French presidential election on Sunday, according to mortgage
finance agency Freddie Mac on Thursday.
    The borrowing cost on 30-year mortgages, the most widely
held type of U.S. home loan, averaged 4.03 percent in the week
ended April 27, up from the prior week's 3.97 percent, it said.
    The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield had risen
earlier this week as investors scaled back their safe-haven bond
holdings on expectations centrist Emmanuel Macron would beat
anti-EU Marine Le Pen in the French presidential run-off on May
    In early Thursday trading, the 10-year Treasury yield was
down over 1 basis point at 2.296 percent after hitting a
two-week peak at 2.350 percent on Wednesday, Reuters data
    "Despite recent swings in mortgage rates, the housing market
continues to show signs of strength," Freddie Mac's chief
economist Sean Becketti said in a statement.
    Below is a summary of Freddie Mac's average mortgage rates
in the week ended April 27:
 Loan type      Latest week (pct)  Week ago (pct)  Year ago (pct)
 30-year fixed  4.03               3.97            3.66
 15-year fixed  3.27               3.23            2.89
