July 25 (Bloomberg) -- Dubai’s Islamic bond due 2014 may provide better returns than its 2020 security as investors shift toward shorter maturities and because of the need to hedge against an increase in U.S. treasury yields, analysts say.

The yield gap between the Dubai government’s 6.396 percent Islamic bond, or sukuk, due 2014 and its 7.75 percent security due 2020 widened 11 basis points this month, led by a drop in yields on the shorter-dated notes, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The yield gap between the Abu Dhabi government’s 5.5 percent coupon bond due 2014 and its 6.75 percent note due 2019 widened 6 basis points over the month.
