TREASURIES-Yields dip slightly after U.S. jobless claims rise

NEW YORK, June 20 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasuries yields dropped slightly on Thursday after data showed that the number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment rose more than expected last week, but not enough to signal a material shift from the recent pace of moderate job growth.

Benchmark 10-year notes were last down 8/32 in price to yield 2.39 percent, after rising as high as 2.47 percent in overnight trading, the highest level since August 2011.
