organization," Mr. Frank Belatti stated.  "I am proud to have John
as our new Chairman.  John is a highly regarded leader with
substantial experience in the food industry.  His expertise in our
quick service sector will be of great benefit to the Popeyes
brand.  We have great confidence in his ability to work with our

---------------------------------------------------------------
Avicena Group Inc.'s consolidated balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2007,
showed $2,633,623 in total assets, $5,395,597 in total
liabilities, and $6,384,289 in convertible preferred stock,

warrants to GP Group for investment banking services and warrants

auditing firm pointed to the company's significant operating

BALLANTYNE RE: Fitch Retains Neg. Watch on BB+ Rated Cl. B-1 Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
Ballantyne Re Plc remains on Rating Watch Negative by Fitch
Ratings following the announcement that Ballantyne Re reduced to
zero the outstanding principal on $25.4 million of class C-1
subordinated variable interest rate notes and $170 million of its
class C-2 subordinated variable interest rate notes plus all
accrued and outstanding interest.

The class C-1 and C-2 note holders are deemed to have forfeited
all rights thereto.  The write downs are permitted by the terms of
the indenture which allow Ballantyne to write down a sufficient
amount of class C notes to restore Irish statutory surplus to $7
million.

These ratings remain on Rating Watch-Negative by Fitch:

  -- $250,000,000 class A-1 floating-rate notes, 'A+';
  -- $10,000,000 class B-1 subordinated notes, 'BB+';
  -- $40,000,000 class B-2 subordinated floating-rate notes,
     'BB+'.

The 'AAA' ratings of Ballantyne Re's class A-2 and A-3 floating-
rate guaranteed notes are not affected because those ratings are
linked to the financial strength of the relevant financial
guarantors.

Certain reserve funds that support the Ballantyne Re transaction
have material exposure to subprime residential asset- and
mortgage-backed securities that have experienced significant
market value declines over the past few months.  Subprime
residential ABS/MBS are in the midst of a significant market
dislocation due to liquidity constraints and deteriorating credit
fundamentals.  As a result, the subprime residential ABS/MBS
securities market has experienced ratings downgrades and mark-to-
market losses.  The decline in market values has continued since
Aug. 14, 2007 when Fitch originally placed the notes on Rating
Watch Negative.  Further, interest payments to the Ballantyne Re
class B-1 and class B-2 notes was suspended, in accordance with
the terms of the indenture, on Sept. 4, 2007.

Following the write downs, $24.6 million of class C-1 and no class
C-2 notes remain outstanding.  Thus, the amount of subordinated
debt supporting the A and B classes has declined considerably.
Fitch is in the process of re-running its model of the Ballantyne
Re cash flows under various scenarios.  These scenarios will
consider the potential for continued declines in subprime market
values, the possibility of a recovery in subprime market values
and the likelihood that subprime market values may only partially
recover.  Fitch expects to complete this analysis within the week
at which time the ratings will likely be downgraded.  The
downgrades, particularly for the class B-1 and B-2 notes, could
potentially be more than one notch.

Ballantyne Re is a special purpose public limited company
incorporated and registered in Ireland.  The company was
established for the limited purpose of entering into a reinsurance
agreement with Scottish Re, and conducting activities related to
the notes' issuance.  Under the reinsurance agreement, Scottish Re
ceded a block of business to Ballantyne Re.  Ballantyne Re issued
the notes to finance excess reserve requirements under Regulation
XXX for the ceded block of business.


BARNHILL'S BUFFET: Selling 21 Restaurants to Star Buffet
--------------------------------------------------------
Star Buffet Inc. had reached agreement, subject to certain
conditions including bankruptcy court and selected creditor
approvals, to purchase the operating assets of 21 Barnhill's
Buffet Inc. restaurants located in the states of Alabama,
Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.

with Barnhill's plans to restructure operations.  Barnhill's
Buffet filed a petition for voluntary Chapter 11 reorganization
with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Middle District of Tennessee
on Dec. 3, 2007.  A closing date for this transaction has not been
determined.

"Barnhill's is a great company with a great buffet brand ... that
has recently struggled due to its capital structure, not because
of operational issues," Robert E. Wheaton, Star Buffet's president

resources to help rectify Barnhill's liquidity problems and that
the addition of 21 Barnhill's restaurants will compliment our

BROADHOLLOW FUNDING: Moody's Junks Rating on Subordinated Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's has downgraded the variable rate subordinated notes issued
by Broadhollow Funding LLC to Ca from B2.  To date, 54.23% of the
principal amount of the $138 million Subordinated Notes has been
paid.

The rating action is based primarily on the continued uncertainty
that the Subordinated Notes will be paid in full by the legal
final maturity date from the proceeds of the sale of mortgages and
receipt of payments from the swap providers.  The collateral in
the Broadhollow portfolio consisted of Agency conforming, jumbo
and Alt-A mortgage loans.  Broadhollow has not received the full
amount it believes is due under the market value swap.  According
to public documents filed with the US Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware on Oct. 22, 2007, Broadhollow has filed suit
against one of the swap providers, Bank of America, N.A., in this
matter.

At the same time, Moody's is withdrawing the Prime-1 rating
assigned to the commercial paper issued by Broadhollow.

Broadhollow issued secured liquidity notes, a form of extendible
asset-backed commercial paper.  These notes were paid in full on
Oct. 9, 2007 and are no longer outstanding.

Broadhollow was sponsored by American Home Mortgage Investment
Corp. On August 6, 2007, the program sponsor, American Home
Mortgage Investment Corp., filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11.

CA INC: Paying $0.04 Per Share Quarterly Dividend on December 28
----------------------------------------------------------------
CA Inc.'s Board of Directors has declared a regular, quarterly
cash dividend of $0.04 per share.  The dividend will be paid
on Dec. 28, 2007 to stockholders of record at the close of
business on Dec. 14, 2007.

Headquartered in Islandia, New York, CA Inc. (NYSE:CA) --
http://www.ca.com/-- is an information technology management
software company that unifies and simplifies the management
of enterprise-wide IT.  Founded in 1976, CA serves customers in
more than 140 countries.

                          *     *     *

Standard & Poor's Rating Services affirmed its 'BB' corporate
credit and senior unsecured debt ratings on CA Inc. in June 2007.
At the same time, S&P revised the outlook to stable from negative.


CALPINE CORP: Can Abandon Claims of Less than $1 Million
--------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Burton R. Lifland of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York authorized Calpine Corp. and its
debtor-affiliates to abandon any and all claims or causes of
action to avoid transfers under Section 547 of the Bankruptcy Code
where the transfers to a particular entity aggregate less than
$1,000,000.

The Court also directed the Court Clerk to accept filings, under
seal, of the complaint in each Preference Action the Debtors may
file.  The dockets for any Preference Action will be under seal
and the identity of the defendant will not be disclosed.

The Debtors will have until June 30, 2008, to serve each
defendant with a summons and complaint.

David R. Seligman, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis, LLP, in New York,
told the Court, on the Debtors' behalf, that their deadline to
commence avoidance actions under Section 547 is on Dec. 20,
2007.

According to Mr. Seligman, the Debtors may have more than 5,700
potential preference actions.  In late 2006, the Debtors
conducted an analysis of their payments on account of antecedent
debts during the preference periods and their payment history
within the 15 months before filing for bankruptcy.  The Debtors
also analyzed more than 35,000 payments made to more than 5,700
vendors within the applicable preference period.  These payments
total more than $5,100,000,000, he said.

Of those payments, Mr. Seligman noted, more than 20,000 payments
to approximately 4,700 vendors would provide no realistic
recovery value to the Debtors, regardless of the ultimate
recovery of unsecured creditors, based on a variety of factors
unique to each payee.  The payments, totaling approximately
$3,100,000,000, include:

   -- payments to parties that entered into postpetition
      settlements that waived avoidance claims;

   -- payments to contract counter-parties whose contracts were
      assumed;

   -- employee benefit payments;

   -- payments made to government entities otherwise entitled to
      priority treatment;

   -- intercompany transfers; and

   -- transfers to investment accounts.

Based on the Preference Analysis and focusing specifically on the
remaining $2,000,000,000 potential preference actions, the
Debtors believe that they have a number of preference claims
that, if litigated to conclusion, would result in significant
money judgment claims in their favor.  However, Mr. Seligman
stated, the value of the money judgments will be significantly,
if not completely, negated by the corresponding Section 502(h)
unsecured claims that will arise against the Debtors' estates
after satisfaction of the money judgments.

Specifically, the Debtors believe that filing and serving of
complaints asserting preference claims for aggregate payments of
less than $1,000,000 will cost them hundreds of thousands of
dollars in unnecessary legal fees and expenses without a
realistic chance of any material recovery on behalf of their
estates.

Since a determination that all unsecured creditors will be paid
in full negates any justification for filing preference actions,
the Debtors have sought tolling agreements with almost all
possible preference defendants, Mr. Seligman said, adding that
many of those still remain unsigned.

As a result, Mr. Seligman averred, the Debtors likely will be
forced to file certain preference actions to preserve their
rights on the December 20 deadline.  To avoid wasting time,
money, and judicial resources, however, the Debtors also asked the
Court to approve the procedures with respect to any preference
action they will commence until distributions to unsecured
creditors can be understood with greater clarity:

The Debtors proposed that:

   (a) the Clerk of the Court defer issuing summons unless and
       until they inform the Clerk of their intent to pursue the
       preference actions;

   (b) the time period under Rule 7004 of the Federal Rules of
       Bankruptcy Procedures be extended until June 30, 2008, to
       prevent dismissal of the complaint due to the deferred
       issuance of summons;

   (c) any adversary proceeding they file be temporarily stayed,
       without prejudice to their right to amend the complaint
       during the stay;

   (d) the stay will be automatically lifted upon the service of
       the summons and the filed complaint; and

   (e) the preference complaints be filed under seal.

Mr. Seligman contended that sealing of the records in the
Preference Actions will protect the Debtors and the potential
defendants from the disclosure of confidential and potentially
damaging commercial information, including information related to
valuation.

                            Liquidity

The company's net cash requirements for the period Oct. 1, 2007,
through June 30, 2008, are projected to be approximately
$3.4 million.  During this period it is anticipated that
$2.6 million will be needed to fund net DelSite expenses for
research and development work on its proprietary drug delivery
systems.  In addition, it is anticipated that $1.5 million will be
needed to fund operating losses in the company's medical services
and consumer services divisions, $500,000 will be needed for
ongoing investment in capital equipment and $3.0 million for debt
service.  These cash requirements will be partially offset by the
$3.3 million existing cash balance at Sept. 30, 2007.

Based on current estimates, the company believes that it will need
to raise approximately $8.0 million in additional capital to meet
its operating and research and development needs through the end
of 2008.

CHINA YILI: Posts $15,808 Net Loss in Third Quarter
---------------------------------------------------
China Yili Petroleum Company reported a net loss of $15,808 on
sales of $508,612 for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007,
compared with a net loss of $57,075 on $-0- of sales in the same
period a year ago.

All of the revenue and most of the expenses reported by the
company for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2007, were generated
by ASAP Holdings.  These do not, however, reflect all of the
revenue and expenses of ASAP Holdings for that three month period.
Because the merger of Yili Asphalt into the company on Aug. 13,
2007, is accounted for as a reverse merger, the historic financial
statements of Yili Asphalt have replaced the historic financial
statements of the company prior to the reverse merger.  Only the
results of operations of ASAP Holdings occurring after Aug. 13,
2007, are consolidated in the financial results for the quarter
ended Sept. 30, 2007.

The $508,612 in revenue reported by ASAP Holdings for the period
from Aug. 13, 2007, to Sept. 30, 2007, arose primarily from its
business of selling exhibit space at trade shows.

At Sept. 30, 2007, the company's consolidated balance sheet showed
$8,357,619 in total assets, $2,928,302 in total liabilities, and
$5,429,317 in total stockholders' equity.

The company's consolidated balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2007, also
showed strained liquidity with $256,187 in total current assets
available to pay $2,928,302 in total current liabilities.

Sutton Robinson Freeman & Co. P. C., in Tulsa, Okla., expressed
substantial doubt about ASAP Show Inc. nka. China Yili Petroleum

its audit of the company's consolidated financial statements for
the year ended May 31, 2007.  The auditing firm reported that the
company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a
net capital deficiency.

At Sept. 30, 2007, the company's current liabilities exceeded its
current assets by $2.7 million.  In addition, Yili Asphalt has not
generated any revenues.

CLAYTON HOLDINGS: May Take $100MM Impairment Charge in 4th Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
Clayton Holdings Inc. expects to take a pre-tax, non-cash,
impairment charge of between $75 million and $100 million in the
fourth quarter of 2007, reflecting the reduced carrying value of
goodwill, intangible assets and other long-lived assets of its
transaction management business.  The goodwill and intangible
assets were recorded in 2004 when TA Associates acquired the
majority interest in Clayton's due diligence business.

"As we have reported for several quarters, the steep decline in
new nonconforming securities issuance has significantly reduced
our transaction management revenues," Frank Filipps, Clayton's
chairman and chief executive officer, said.  "While we are well
positioned to benefit from any recovery in this market, internal
and industry projections anticipate continued lower levels of
MBS/ABS issuance throughout much of 2008 and possibly into 2009."

"In our last 10-Q and investor call, we noted that our board of
directors would retain an independent expert to review the value
of the goodwill and intangible assets that we carry on our balance
sheet," Mr. Filipps added.  "While these impairment tests have not
been completed, the company's board of directors has determined
that generally accepted accounting principles will require us to
record a non-cash impairment charge during the fourth quarter of
2007.  This charge does not affect our cash position, our cash
flow from operations or our debt covenants."

After the charge, the carrying value of Clayton's goodwill and
other intangible assets will total approximately $38 million to
$63 million.

corporate credit rating is affirmed at 'B+'.


CLEAR CHANNEL: Paying $0.1875/Share Cash Dividend on January 15
---------------------------------------------------------------
Clear Channel Communications Inc.'s board of directors declared a
quarterly cash dividend of $0.1875 per share on its common stock.
The dividend is payable on or before Jan. 15, 2008, to
shareholders of record at the close of business on Dec. 31, 2007.

Based in San Antonio, Texas, Clear Channel Communications Inc.
(NYSE:CCU) -- http://www.clearchannel.com/-- is a media

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 27, 2007,
Fitch Ratings said it expects to downgrade Clear Channel
Communications Inc.'s Issuer Default Rating to 'B' from 'BB-'.
The rating outlook is expected to be stable.  Existing ratings
remain on rating watch negative pending the closing of the
merger transaction and review of final documentation.


CMS ENERGY: Terminated Deal Won't Affect Fitch's "BB+" Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
CMS Energy Corp.'s recent announcement that indirect subsidiary,
Dearborn Industrial Generation LLC has reached agreements to
terminate unprofitable electricity sales agreements with Ford
Motor Company and Severstal North America Inc. will not have any
effect on the ratings or Rating Outlook of CMS, according to Fitch
Ratings.  Under the terms of the termination agreements, CMS will
make a one-time cash payment of $275 million to Ford and SNA.  The
termination agreement is conditioned upon the ability of Ford and
SNA to return to electric service with the Detroit Edison Company.
Fitch currently rates CMS' Issuer Default Rating 'BB+' with a
Stable Outlook.

CMS has sufficient liquidity to withstand the $275 million payout
through its credit facilities.  There was approximately $296
million available under credit facilities as of Sept. 30, 2007.
The termination of these agreements is considered favorable and is
a factor in Fitch's current ratings analysis.

DIG entered into the agreements (260 MW) with Ford and SNA in 1999
to provide steam and (or) electricity based on a fixed price
schedule.  The price of natural gas, the primary fuel used by DIG,
is volatile and has increased substantially in recent years.
Because the prices charged under DIG's contracts do not reflect
current natural gas prices, DIG's financial performance has been
impacted negatively.  The long-term contracts have been a drag on
CMS earnings for several years due to higher gas prices.  However,
since not all of its 710 mw of capacity is committed under these
contracts, DIG has been selling portions of its electric capacity
and (or) energy into the market at a profit; and engaging in
hedging strategies to minimize its losses.  With the termination
of the Ford and SNA agreements, it is expected that DIG will post
positive cash flows beginning in 2008.

CMS is a utility holding company whose primary subsidiary is
Consumers Energy, a regulated electric and gas utility serving
more than 3.5 million customers in Western Michigan.  CMS also has
operations in natural gas pipelines and independent power
production.  DIG is a 710 MW gas combined and simple cycle
facility in Michigan.

Based in Bend, Oregon, Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation
-- http://www.flycolumbia.com/-- manufactures a variety of all-
composite aircraft, including the Columbia 400 and employs
approximately 440 people.

The company filed for Chapter 11 protection on Sept. 24, 2007
(Bankr. D. Ore. Case No. 07-33850).  Leon Simson, Esq., Albert
N. Kennedy, Esq., and Timothy J. Conway, Esq., at Tonkon Torp
LLP represent the Debtor in its restructuring efforts.  James
Ray Streinz, Esq., and Johnston A. Mitchell, Esq., at McEwen
Gisvold LLP serve as counsel to the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.  When the Debtors filed for protection from
their creditors, they listed estimated assets and liabilities of
$1 million to $100 million.  The Debtor's list of its 20 largest
unsecured creditors showed total aggregate claims of more than
$50 million.


COLUMBIA AIRCRAFT: Taps ING Fin'l. as Investment Banker & Advisor
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation asks permission from
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Oregon to employ ING
Financial Markets LLC as its financial advisor and investment
banker, nunc pro tunc to Sept. 24, 2007.

The Debtor initially retained ING Financial on November 2006.  The
services ING Financial has been performing for the Debtor and for
which ING will continue to perform include:

   a) advising the Debtor with respect to the structure and
      financial terms of a possible sale or other transaction and
      the negotiating strategy to be used in connection with the
      sale(s);

   b) assisting the Debtor in preparing informaiton, documents,
      and confidential offering memoranda for distribution to
      potential buyers in connection with the sale process;

   c) coordinating and assisting in the preparation of the
      appropriate due diligence process and participating in
      meetings with potential acquirers as needed;

   d) identifying in any discussions and negotiations with
      prospective suitors and serving as primary intermediary
      between the Debtor and potential bidders for purposes of
      negotiating confidentiality agreements required of all
      potential bidders requesting information and access for due
      diligence purposes; and

   e) identifying and introducing investors, companies and person
      who might be interested in a transaction involving the
      Debtor.

For compensation, ING Financial will be entitled to a success fee
equal to the greater of:

   -- 1.5% of the aggregate consideration, as defined in the
      Debtor's engagement agreement with the firm, payable in
      connection with a sale, merger, consolidation,
      reorganization, or other business combination involving all
      or a substantial portion of the business assets of the
      Debtor; or

   -- an amount of $1,150,000.

A non-refundable retainer of $50,000 previously paid to ING will
be credited against any success fee which ING may be entitled to
receive.  Prior to the Debtor's bankruptcy filing, ING was paid
approximately $206,259 in accordance with the engagement
agreement.

The Debtor says that the firm does not have any connection with
the Debtor, its creditors, or any other party-in-interest, other
than that established by the engagement agreement.

                        Committee Objects

The Official Unsecured Creditors Committee in Columbia Aircraft's
Chapter 11 case objected to certain aspects of ING's employment as
financial advisor.

The Creditors Committee asked the Court not to allow its
discretion over the compensation of ING to be limited by the pre-
bankruptcy engagement agreement.  The Committee related that the
Court has already rejected the attempted end-run around the
requirements for hiring professionals by assuming a prepetition
contract in its decision with respect to hiring Bridge Associates.
Although the parties agreed to hire Bridge, the Court recognized
that Bridge needed to be hired as a professional under Section 327
of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  The Committee contends that the
Court should allow employment of ING as a professional on terms
accepted by the Court, rather than required by the engagement
agreement.

The Committee explained that other bankruptcy courts have rejected
attempts by professionals, especially investment bankers, to
dictate the terms of their representation through a prepetition
contract.  The Committee pointed out that these courts facing this
issue recognized that the debtor and the investment banker are not
in an equal bargaining position, which would lead to a debtor
agreeing to a "bad bargain".

The Committee also objected to ING seeking to have its fee set at
$1,150,000.  The guaranty of a set fee is unwarranted, precisely
because the Court should give discretion to set compensation based
on whether ING has been successful, the Creditors Panel contended.

CORD BLOOD: Sept. 30 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by $4.1 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
Cord Blood America Inc.'s consolidated balance sheet at Sept. 30,
2007, showed $5.9 million in total assets and $10.0 million in
total liabilities, resulting in a $4.1 million total stockholders'
deficit.

At Sept. 30, 2007, the company's consolidated balance sheet also
showed strained liquidity with $903,102 in total current assets
available to pay $10.0 million in total current liabilities.

The company reported a net loss of $1.1 million for the third
quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007, compared with a net loss of
$1.3 million in the comparable period last year.

For the three months ended Sept. 30, 2007, total revenue increased
$511,000 or 44.7% to $1.7 million due primarily to the company's
acquisition of more umbilical cord samples along with customer
lists and marketing efforts.

Administrative and selling expenses increased to $1.1 million, or
an increase of $230,000 from the three month comparative period in
2006.

Interest costs increased $473,000 over the prior year's
comparative period, an increase of 87%.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2007, total revenue increased
$3.1 million or 121% to $5.7 million.

Net loss from continuing operations did not significantly change
from the comparative period, declining 1.8% to $4.2 million.

statements for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007, are available for

                       Going Concern Doubt

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 9, 2007,
Rose, Snyder & Jacobs, in Encino, Calif., expressed
substantial doubt about Cord Blood America Inc.'s ability to
continue as a going concern after auditing the company's balance
sheet for the years ended Dec. 31, 2006, and 2005.  The auditing
firm pointed to the company's recurring operating losses,
continuing use of cash in operating activities, insufficient
working capital and accumulated deficit at Dec. 31, 2006.

                       About Cord America

CREDIT SUISSE: Fitch Junks Rating on Class B-7 Certificates
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirms 4, downgrades 11, and places 1 class on
Rating Watch Negative from the following Credit Suisse Mortgage
Securities Corp. mortgage-backed pass-through certificates, series
2006-7

Groups 1-5
  -- Class A affirmed at 'AAA';
  -- Class B-1 affirmed at 'AA';
  -- Class B-2 affirmed at 'A';
  -- Class B-3 downgraded to 'BBB' from 'BBB+';
  -- Class B-4 downgraded to 'BBB-' from 'BBB';
  -- Class B-5 downgraded to 'BB+' from 'BBB-';
  -- Class B-6 downgraded to 'B+' from 'BB';
  -- Class B-7 downgraded to 'C/DR4' from 'B'.

Groups 6-12
  -- Class A affirmed at 'AAA';
  -- Class DB-2 rated 'AA-' is placed on Rating Watch Negative;
  -- Class DB-3 downgraded to 'A' from 'A+';
  -- Class DB-4 downgraded to 'BBB+' from 'A';
  -- Class DB-5 downgraded to 'BBB-' from 'BBB+';
  -- Class DB-6 downgraded to 'BB+' from 'BBB';
  -- Class DB-7 downgraded to 'B+' from 'BBB-' and removed from
     Rating Watch Negative;
  -- Class DB-8 is downgraded to 'CC/DR3' from 'B+';
  -- Class DB-9 remains at 'C/DR4'.

The collateral of the above transaction consists of first lien
fixed-rate alt-A mortgage loans.  All of the mortgage loans were
purchased by an affiliate of the depositor from various sellers in
secondary market transactions.

The affirmations reflect adequate relationships of credit
enhancement to future loss expectations and affect approximately
$927.9 million of outstanding certificates.  The downgrades,
affecting approximately $25.7million of outstanding certificates,
are taken as a result of a deteriorating relationship between CE
and expected loss.  In addition, the class DB-2 bond was placed on
Rating Watch Negative and affects approximately $5 million in
outstanding certificates.

As of the Oct. 25, 2007 remittance period, the Groups 1-5 has
approximately 1.94% of its collateral in the 60+ delinquency
bucket while the current CE for most subordinate Fitch rated class
(B-7) is 0.33%.  Groups 6-12 has approximately 3.63% of its
collateral in the 60+ delinquency bucket while the current CE for
class DB9 is 0.55%.  The pool factors of Group 1-5 and Groups 6-12
is approximately 83% and 82%, respectively, and the trust is 15
months seasoned.

The mortgage loans are being serviced by various servicers with
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. ('RMS1' rated by Fitch) acting as Master
Servicer.


CSFB HOME: Moody's Lowers Ratings on 36 Certificate Classes
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 36 certificates and
placed on review for possible downgrade 14 certificates from five
transactions issued by CSFB Home Equity Mortgage Trust.  All
transactions are backed by second lien loans.  The certificates
were downgraded and placed on review for possible downgrade
because the bonds' credit enhancement levels, including excess
spread and subordination, were too low compared to the current
projected loss numbers at the previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months have continued to
erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine and senior
certificates.  Despite the large amount of write-offs due to
losses, delinquency pipelines have remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that
the significant delinquency pipelines will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the senior and mezzanine
certificates.

DELPHI CORP: Gets Committees' Support on Plan Amendments
--------------------------------------------------------
Delphi Corp. said it has reached agreements in principle with its
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, its Official Committee
of Equity Security Holders, General Motors Corp. and its Plan
Investors on amendments to its Joint Plan of Reorganization,
Global Settlement Agreement and Master Restructuring Agreement
between Delphi and GM, and the Investment Agreement with Delphi's
Plan Investors led by an affiliate of Appaloosa Management L.P.
Delphi filed potential amendments to all four documents on Monday
evening in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York as revisions to the company's Disclosure
Statement and appendices to the company's Disclosure Statement.

Delphi expects to make further amended filings prior to the
resumption on Dec. 6, 2007 of the Disclosure Statement hearing
commenced in Oct. 2007.  These filings will include further
changes required to reflect the agreements in principle with
Delphi's key stakeholders and executed signature pages with
respect to the Company's agreements with GM and the Plan
Investors.  These agreements currently remain subject to proposed
amendments announced on Nov. 14, which are also subject to
Bankruptcy Court approval.

The potential amendments primarily reflect changes required by
Delphi's Statutory Committees to obtain their support of Delphi's
Plan and related Disclosure Statement.  In the event these
amendments do not become effective, the original underlying
agreements as approved by the Bankruptcy Court on Aug. 2 remain
in effect.  The company continues to pursue emergence from
Chapter 11 during the first quarter of 2008.

The potential amendments to the Disclosure Statement and certain
Appendices (which include amendments to the POR, the GM Global
Settlement Agreement, the GM Master Restructuring Agreement and
the Investment Agreement) will be available on

DRESSER-RAND GROUP: Implements Terms of New Union Contract
----------------------------------------------------------
Dresser-Rand Group Inc., after reaching impasse in its
negotiations with the IUE-CWA Local 313 union representatives
for the company's Painted Post facility in New York State, the
company has implemented the terms of its last offer and has
invited bargaining unit employees to immediately return to work.

At the time of the strike on Aug. 4, 2007, there were
approximately 400 bargaining unit employees.  However, since the
strike began, the company has hired over 90 permanent
replacement workers, subcontracted approximately 35% of its
work, and continued to augment production with approximately 130
temporary employees.  It is anticipated that temporary employees
will continue to be reduced by additional new hires, employees
returning to work, and increased subcontracting.

"This is a major event in the evolution of this facility because
the contract language governing our operating policies is now
consistent with contemporary standards, and the employee
benefits will be more in line with the vast majority of what
already exists among Dresser-Rand U.S.-based union and non-union
employees," said Dresser-Rand President and Chief Executive
Officer, Vincent R. Volpe, Jr.

"While it is unfortunate that we collectively had to endure a
sixteen week strike, it is equally clear that this was an
investment in the future of the Painted Post facility.
Throughout the course of the strike, our replacement workers and
our salaried employees, as well as the strikers who returned to
work, did an outstanding job because of their dedication and
their extended work hours in helping the business move forward,"
said Mr. Volpe.

On Nov. 13, 2007, the Union and the company agreed to meet for 3
more days of bargaining and then to meet every day beginning
Nov. 26, 2007, in continuous negotiating sessions on consecutive
days thereafter.  On Nov. 19, 2007, the union made an offer to
return to work under the expired contract.  This followed 32
sessions of negotiations between the company and the union and a
sixteen-week strike.  The company elected not to accept the
union's offer.  During the first two days of negotiations
following the Thanksgiving holiday, both parties expressed their
unwillingness to change their negotiating position.  The union
then informed the company that it was unavailable to meet for
the remainder of the week, and ended the negotiations at
approximately noon on Nov. 27, 2007.

According to Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer
Elizabeth Powers, "The Union has filed several unfair labor
practice charges against the company which will be decided over
the course of the next several months.  The company has fully
cooperated with the National Labor Relations Board's
investigation of these charges.  However, the company, together
with our external labor counsel, are confident that every
precaution has been taken to ensure that the company has
followed the law properly and fully respected the rights of the
Union, the employees, and the bargaining process."

Over the sixteen week strike, Painted Post shipped 42 complete
compressor units, the majority of which were delivered on time
or early to clients.  During the months of the strike, from
August through November 2007, the parts business in Painted Post
exceeded shipment levels compared to August through November
2006.

During the strike, Lloyds Registry recertified the Painted Post
facility for both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, despite the fact that
the entire workforce of temporary and permanent replacement
workers was new.

According to Director of Operations for the Painted Post
facility, Doug Rich, "The past several weeks have resulted in a
culture change and a tremendous amount of teamwork within the
facility as all of our employees -- both management and
production employees -- have worked together to accomplish our
goal of providing uninterrupted service to our clients.  We are
proud of the effort and results of our employees during this
strike."

Mr. Volpe said, "We are now looking forward to welcoming back
many of our employees into a rejuvenated atmosphere of
collaboration and teamwork, where positive energy is expended on
satisfying our clients".

"This company, with the support of its board and shareholders,
never wavered in its resolve to obtain what we considered to be
the principal operational objectives that have now been
achieved" according to Mr. Volpe.  "As a result, clients of our
reciprocating compressor products, principally manufactured in
Painted Post New York, should be better served."

The company currently does not believe that this recent
development warrants any change in its earnings guidance for
2007 and 2008 disclosed at its Oct. 31, 2007 conference call
which followed the report of the company's third quarter 2007
results.

DRESSER-RAND: Employees Back to Work at Painted Post Facility
-------------------------------------------------------------
Dresser-Rand Group Inc. has began an orderly process of calling
bargaining unit employees back to work after a 17 week work
stoppage involving approximately 400 employees at its Painted
Post facility in New York State.

On Nov. 29, 2007, the company disclosed that, after reaching
impasse in its negotiations with IUE-CWA Local 313, it was
implementing the terms of its last offer and inviting bargaining
unit employees to return to work.   The union offered, on behalf
of its membership to end the strike by unconditionally offering to
return to work under the terms of the implemented company offer.
The company has released its temporary workforce.

According to Dan Meisner, "Total production from all sources is
expected to continue at pre-strike levels as we replace
temporary workers and subcontracted work with returning
employees.  Approximately 75 employees are expected to return to
work on Tuesday, Dec. 4.  Additional employees will be scheduled
to return to work over the next few days and weeks as we
identify and fill vacancies.  We look forward to the return of
our employees."

"We recognize that this has been a difficult situation for all of
us that have been affected by the work stoppage -- our employees
who have been on strike and their families, the Painted Post
community and our salaried and new employees who have been working
tremendous hours to continue providing uninterrupted service to
our clients," Doug Rich, Director of Operations, said.  "We now
have an opportunity to move forward and forge a bright future by
working together in an environment of mutual respect, cooperation
and teamwork."

$100 million.

DUNMORE HOMES: 4 More Creditors Seek Case Transfer to California
----------------------------------------------------------------
Teichert Construction Inc., Aleco Corporation, Granite
Construction Company, and DeSilva Gates Construction L.P. have
joined in the request of Cal Sierra Construction Inc., Pacific
Paving Co. Inc., and Valley Utility Services Inc., to transfer the
venue of the Chapter 11 case of Dunmore Homes Inc., to the Eastern
District of California, Sacramento Division.

Aleco, Granite, and DeSilva are listed among the Debtor's 20
largest unsecured creditors.  They provided goods and services
concerning projects owned by one or more of the Debtor's
subsidiaries.

Teichert is listed as the sixth largest creditor on the Debtor's
list of 20 largest unsecured creditors.  Teichert though never
did business with the Debtor but did business with Dunmore Homes
Inc., a California corporation, and its affiliates, R. Dale
Ginter, Esq., at Downey Brand LLP, in Sacramento, California,
relates, on Teichert's behalf.

Mr. Ginter notes that Dunmore California's business was
overwhelmingly centered in California with a small portion done
in Nevada at one time.

Mr. Ginter points out that on Aug. 30, 2007, a new Dunmore Homes
Inc. was formed in New York and as previously reported, the
assets of Dunmore California were transferred to Dunmore New
York.  Dunmore New York's business address, he contends, is
exactly the same address that Dunmore California provided as its
business address.

The transactions involved from the change of Dunmore California's
name to the creation of Dunmore New York look very much like sham
transactions done for no other reason than to obtain a New York
forum, Mr. Ginter says.  The only "business" reason proffered for
the transactions, he emphasizes, is the tax maneuver to obtain a
large tax refund for Sid Dunmore so that he can then arguably pay
his debt to the Debtor, subject to unspecified offsets.

Mr. Ginter also notes that a New York venue is 3000 miles from
any place that Dunmore ever did business.  "It is designed to be
inconvenient," he contends, "for the creditors so as to
discourage, if not preclude, their active participation in this
Chapter 11 proceeding."

The reorganization process is about negotiation with, and the
participation of, the creditors, Mr. Ginter maintains.  This
attempt to discourage creditor participation should not be
tolerated by the Court, he says.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 29, 2007,
Cal Sierra Construction Inc., Pacific Paving Co. Inc., and
Valley Utility Services Inc., told the Court that the Debtor has
no present domestic business activity or presence outside of
California, nor does it maintain any domestic offices or employees
outside of California.

DUNMORE HOMES: Wants to Sell 161 Acres of Sacramento Real Estate
----------------------------------------------------------------
Dunmore Homes Inc. asks the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York for authority to sell 161 acres of
real estate located in Sacramento County, Calif. -- the Stone
Mitigation Property -- to the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency
for $4,360,000, free and clear of all liens, claims, encumbrances,
and interests, and subject to higher and better offers.

                 The Stone Mitigation Property

The Stone Mitigation Property was purchased by Dunmore Homes Inc.
in June 2004 for $2,259,640, Richard M. Pachulski, Esq., at
Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in New York, relates.  The
purchase was made in conjunction with the acquisition of land in
the Natomas Basin of Sacramento by Dunmore Land Company LLC, a
company wholly owned by Sidney Dunmore.

Specifically, Dunmore Land acquired land or options to purchase
land in order to create a master-planned community in the Natomas
Basin area of Sacramento that was anticipated to be sold to
Dunmore California for development.

In the Natomas Basin area of Sacramento, Mr. Pachulski notes, the
developer of the land is required to secure mitigation land to
offset the impact to wildlife and agricultural resources prior to
developing the land.  That developer must dedicate the land to
the Natomas Basin Conservancy.  The Conservancy requires that the
mitigation land be purchased within the Natomas Basin and be used
for development mitigation only on properties with the Natomas
Basin.

In anticipation of the purchase of the Natomas Development from
Dunmore Land, Dunmore California acquired the Stone Mitigation
Property.  Dunmore California secured approval from the Natomas
Basin Conservancy on the acceptability of the Stone Mitigation
Property as mitigation land.

The Stone Mitigation Property was transferred to the Debtor in
September 2007 in connection with the Debtor's acquisition of
substantially all of the assets of Dunmore California.

The property has limited uses because it is located in a
historically agricultural zone within unincorporated Sacramento
County and is in an area lacking the major infrastructure
necessary to support industrial, commercial, or residential
development, Mr. Pachulski contends.

The property, he adds, is situated in an area of the Natomas
Basin that includes a number properties acquired by the
Conservancy for the preservation of wildlife and wetland
habitats.  A number of properties within close proximity to the
Stone Mitigation Property are owned by the Conservancy.

The property is also within the flight path of the Sacramento
International Airport, which creates another significant
impediment to residential development, Mr. Pachulski adds.

                        Marketing Efforts

Because of its limited uses, the Debtor began marketing the
property in August 2007.  The Debtor initially approached Mr.
Dunmore and Dunmore Land with respect to their interest in
purchasing the property.  However, due to the recent rulings from
the Federal Emergency Management Agency placing the Natomas
Development within the 100-year flood plain that will delay
development of the Natomas Development for the foreseeable
future, Mr. Dunmore and Dunmore Land declined.

While marketing efforts were ongoing, the Debtor became aware
that the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency needed to purchase
mitigation land to secure the soil necessary to complete proposed
levee improvements.  The Debtor thus contacted SAFCA.

Upon appraisal, SAFCA valued the land $27,000 per acre and
subsequently made an to purchase the property at that price.

SAFCA's proposed purchase price was higher than any other offers
received, Mr. Pachulski says.  Accordingly, the Debtor negotiated
an agreement with SAFCA for the purchase of the property.  The
SAFCA Board of Directors approved the purchase agreement on
Nov. 29, 2007.

Under the agreement, SAFCA will pay the Debtor $4,360,000 for the
Stone Mitigation Property.  SAFCA will provide the Debtor a
$100,00 deposit.

The parties anticipate closing the proposed sale no later than
Jan. 31, 2008.  A condition to the closing is the commitment
for the issuance of a title policy by Dec. 7, 2007.

The agreement also provides for damages for breach of
representations and warranties up to $100,000.

                      Liens and Encumbrances

Mr. Pachulski tells the Court that the Stone Mitigation Property
is encumbered by a first priority lien in favor of Sacramento
Valley Farm Credit for $1,529,567.  Mr. Dunmore, as DIP lender,
also has a junior lien on the property to secure advances under
the DIP financing facility.

Thus, the Debtor asks the Court for permission to pay, from the
net proceeds of the sale at closing:

   (i) the claims of Sacramento Valley Farm Credit;

  (ii) the claims of the DIP Lender;

(iii) appraisal costs incurred by Sacramento Valley Farm Credit;

  (iv) real estate taxes and assessments through the closing Date;
       and

   (v) title policy costs and half of the costs of escrow.

                       Bidding Procedures

To maximize the value realized for the property, the Debtor seeks
to subject the sale of the property to higher and better bids.

The Debtor intends to provide notice of the proposed sale to
SAFCA to all known interested purchasers as identified by KB
International.  It will cause to be published print notice of the
proposed Sale.  The notice will state that the sale is subject to
higher and better offers and subject to the Court's approval.

Interested parties can bid for the roperty until Dec. 13, 2007.

If a higher and better bid is received by the bid deadline, the
Debtor will conduct an auction for the property on December 14.
The bidder with the higher and better offer will be required to
deposit $100,000 in cash with the Debtor and to execute a
purchase agreement.

The Debtor may require any person desiring to make a bid at the
auction to provide financial assurances satisfactory to the
Debtor, prior to the auction.

At the auction, a bidder must bid for all of the Stone Mitigation
Property.  The initial overbid will be at least $28,000 per acre.
Succeeding bid increments must be at least $1,000 per acre higher
than the prior highest and best bid.

Any bid over the initial bid must be subject to the bidder's
offer remaining in effect as a back-up bid through the date that
is five business days after the scheduled closing date under the
successful bidder's purchase agreement.  The Debtor will hold the
back-up bidder's deposit until the sale to the successful bidder
has closed.

The Debtor asks the Court to approve the proposed bidding
procedures.

Fitch's actions are based on continued loan performance
deterioration as reflected in the servicer reports dated November
14, 2007.  Since last review on June 8, 2007, Fitch noted that
large delinquent balances in all transactions have rolled into
default.  In addition, the cumulative interest shortfalls in four
of the transactions have grown.  Using assumptions consistent with
historical DVI securitization performance, Fitch ran a series of
cash flow runs for each transaction to determine the appropriate
rating movements, if any.

Fitch will continue to closely monitor performance of the
transactions, will have regular contact with the servicer, US Bank
Portfolio Services (USBPS), and may upgrade, downgrade or withdraw
ratings as appropriate.

FAMILY ROOM: Sept. 30 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by $2.9 Million
---------------------------------------------------------------
Family Room Entertainment Corp.'s consolidated balance sheet at
Sept. 30, 2007, showed $7.7 million in total assets and
$10.6 million in total liabilities, resulting in a $2.9 million
total shareholders' deficit.

The company reported a net loss of $147,016 on revenues of
$309,167 for the first quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007, compared with
a net loss of $862,558 on revenues of $25,000 in the same period
ended Sept. 30, 2006.

The increase in revenues was mainly attributed to increase in film
revenues.

Costs relating to the operating revenues were $147,643 for the
three months ending Sept. 30, 2007, as compared to $451,586 for
the three months ending Sept. 30, 2006, a decrease of $303,943 or
67.3%.  These costs mainly consist of film amortization and write
off of film costs.

Other income was $38,456 for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007, as
compared to other expense of $134,930 for the three months ended
Sept. 30, 2006.  The increase in other income was primarily the
result of an increase in income from the change in value of the
derivative financial instruments of $77,636 and a decrease in
interest expense of $95,429.

statements for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007, are available for

The auditor reported that the company experienced a significant
net loss in the year ending June 30, 2007, and generated negative

FEDERAL GYPSUM: Minister MacIsaac Wary of Additional Investment
---------------------------------------------------------------
Angus MacIsaac, Economic Development Minister of the Province of
Novia Scotia, said that he has yet to see evidence that would
convince him to put more money into Federal Gypsum Co., Brian
Flinn of The Daily News reports.

The company has been under bankruptcy protection since September
2007 and was in court last week to look for parties willing to
lend it money in order to continue operations until January 2008,
the report adds.

Mr. Flinn relates that government agencies had extended a
$9 million assistance to the company in 2004.  However, expenses
for the construction of the wallboard factory went up forcing
government agencies to put more money.  According to Mr. Flinn,
the government doled out $12 million in January and $1.5 million
in May.

The company owes $32 million to 90 creditors with Nova Scotia
Business Inc. having the largest claim of $5.5 million, Mr. Flinn
adds.  The Economic Development meanwhile is owed
$2.5 million.

Mr. Flinn discloses, citing Mr. MacIsaac, that the province's
investment in the company is secured even if the plan is sold.

Federal Gypsum Company -- http://www.federalgypsum.com/--
manufactures high quality PlasterRock(R) brand gypsum wallboard
from its state-of-the-art production facility in Point Tupper,
Nova Scotia.  The plant uses exclusively Nova Scotia gypsum and

The rating actions are based on changes that Fitch has made to its
subprime loss forecasting assumptions.  The updated assumptions
better capture the deteriorating performance of pools from 2007,
2006 and late 2005 with regard to continued poor loan performance
and home price weakness.

  -- $71.2 million class M-1 affirmed at 'AA+';
  -- $45.7 million class M-2 is rated 'AA' and placed on Rating
     Watch Negative;

     removed from Rating Watch Negative;
  -- $15 million class M-9 downgraded to 'B' from 'BB-';
  -- $7.9 million class B-1 downgraded to 'C/DR5' from 'B+'.

Series 2004-FFH4
  -- $16.9 million class A affirmed at 'AAA';
  -- $37.3 million class M-1 affirmed at 'AA+';
  -- $31.4 million class M-2 affirmed at 'AA';
  -- $9.1 million class M-3 affirmed at 'AA-';
  -- $14.2 million class M-4 affirmed at 'A+';
  -- $11.3 million class M-5 affirmed at 'A';
  -- $9.8 million class M-6 affirmed at 'A-';
  -- $11.7 million class M-7 is rated 'BBB+' and placed on
     Rating Watch Negative;
  -- $8.7 million class M-8 is rated 'BBB+' and placed on
     Rating Watch Negative;
  -- $8.7 million class M-9 is rated 'BBB' and remains on
     Rating Watch Negative;
  -- $10.2 million class M-10 downgraded to 'BB' from 'BBB' and
     remains on Rating Watch Negative;
  -- $5.1 million class M-11 downgraded to 'B' from 'BB-' and
     placed on Rating Watch Negative;
  -- $9.8 million class B-1 downgraded to 'CC/DR3' from 'B+'.

The affirmations affect approximately $513.8 million in
outstanding certificates and reflect adequate relationships of
credit enhancement to future loss expectations.  The downgrades
reflect the deterioration in the relationship of CE to future loss
expectations and affect $155.4 million in outstanding
certificates.  In addition, Rating Watch Negative affects $139.1
million of the outstanding certificates.

The aforementioned transactions are experiencing higher
delinquencies which eventually result in increased losses.
Generally the monthly losses are greater than the available excess
spread, which has caused the overcollateralization amount to
decline below the target amount.  The deficit between target and
actual OC ranges from approximately $1 million (series 2004-FF4)
to over $10 million (2004-FFH4).  The OC has been completely
exhausted in series 2004-FFH3.  This decline in credit enhancement
has put negative pressure on the subordinate bonds.

The above trusts consist primarily of fixed and adjustable rate
first liens extended to sub-prime borrowers on primarily one- to
four-family residential properties.  Currently the transactions
are between 34 months-40 months seasoned.  As of October
distribution date loans 60 days or more delinquent range between
14%-32%.  The cumulative losses on these pools are between 0.76%
and 2.58% of their respective original collateral balances.

The mortgage loans are being serviced by various entities which
include Countrywide Home Loan Servicing ('RPS1-' Rating Watch
Evolving rated by Fitch), Saxon Mortgage Securities Corp.
('RPS2+') and Select Portfolio Servicing, Inc. ('RPS2+').


FIRST FRANKLIN: Moody's Junks Ratings on 10 Cert. Classes
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 16 certificates and
placed on review for possible downgrade 11 certificates from two
transactions issued by First Franklin Mortgage Loan Trust.  All
transactions are backed by second lien loans.  The certificates
were downgraded and placed on review for possible downgrade
because the bonds' credit enhancement levels, including excess
spread and subordination, were too low compared to the current
projected loss numbers at the previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months in many of the
deals have continued to erode credit enhancement available to the
mezzanine and senior certificates.  Despite the large amount of
write-offs due to losses, delinquency pipelines have remained high
as borrowers continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's
expectation that the significant delinquency pipelines will have a
further negative impact on the credit support for the senior and
mezzanine certificates.

FIRST UNION: Stable Performance Cues Fitch to Affirm Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed First Union National Bank Commercial
Mortgage Trust's commercial mortgage pass-through certificates,
series 2000-C1, as:

  -- $3.7 million class A-1 at 'AAA';
  -- $480.9 million class A-2 at 'AAA';
  -- Interest-only class, IO at 'AAA';
  -- $38.8 million class B at 'AAA';
  -- $34.9 million class C at 'AAA';
  -- $11.6 million class D at 'AAA';
  -- $25.2 million class E at 'AAA';
  -- $11.6 million class F at 'AAA';
  -- $29.1 million class G at 'A';
  -- $7.8 million class H at 'BBB+';
  -- $3.9 million class J at 'BBB+';
  -- $7.8 million class K at 'BBB-';
  -- $5.8 million class L at 'BB';
  -- $8.7 million class M at 'B-'.

The $8.8 million class N is not rated by Fitch.

The rating affirmations are due to the stable performance of the
transaction.  As of the November 2007 distribution date, the
transaction's aggregate principal balance has decreased 12.6% to
$678.8 million from $776.3 million at issuance.  The transaction
remains diverse geographically and by property type.  Fifty loans
have defeased (43.7%).

Fitch has identified ten Loans of Concern (9.7%), including two
assets (3.9%) in special servicing.  The largest specially
serviced asset (2.7%) is secured by a multifamily property located
in Coral Springs, Forida.  The loan is current and is expected to
return to the master servicer once the technical insurance default
has been cured.

The second specially serviced asset (1.2%) is an office property
in Troy, Michigan and is greater than ninety days delinquent.  The
loan transferred to the special servicer in August 2007 and the
special servicer is working with the borrower to cure the default.


FORD MOTOR: November 2007 Truck Sales in Canada Up 3 Percent
------------------------------------------------------------
November proved to be another winning month for Ford Motor Company
of Canada, Limited, where truck sales increased 3%.  Not to be
outdone, Ford cars also saw a rise in sales in November -- namely
the newly redesigned Ford Focus and Ford Taurus.

"Our showrooms are bustling with pre-holiday traffic," Bill
Osborne, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Limited
said.  "The 'Get in and Drive' year-end clearance has given
Canadians even more reason to take a second look at the great
products Ford has to offer.  From the bold new look of the 2008
Ford Focus, to the enduring Ford Ranger and the reliable Ford F-
Series work-horse, Ford of Canada provides vehicles to suit any
need."

Last month, Ford of Canada's overall sales decreased 8.3% to
15,971 units.  Total truck sales were up 2.7% at 12,039 units and
total car sales of 3,932 units mark a 30.9% decline compared to
last November.  This shift in car sales volume is partially due to
a planned reduction in fleet sales.

GENERAL MOTORS: Bidding for Undisclosed Stake in OAO AvtoVAZ
------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp. has submitted a formal bid for a stake in
Russian carmaker OAO AvtoVAZ, The Wall Street Journal reports.

GM spokesman Marc Kempe described the offer as "competitive",
without specifying how large a stake the company is bidding or how
much it is willing to pay, WSJ relates.

Mr. Kempe told WSJ that the bid was part of its effort to extend
its presence in Russia, where foreign-brand cars posted a 60% rise
in sales.

GM expects this year's sales to reach 250,000 vehicles, compared
to 132,000 units in 2006, WSJ relates.  GM's Chevrolet and Opel
brands are Russia's best-selling foreign and fastest-growing
brands respectively.

WSJ cites some industry analysts as saying that Russia will become
Europe's second-biggest car market by number of new cars sold as
early as the end of 2007.

GM and AvtoVAZ operate a joint venture that manufactures the
Chevrolet Niva and the Chevrolet Viva.  The companies'
relationship, however, soured in 2005 after the Russian government
took over AvtoVaz.

GM may face Fiat S.p.A. and Renault S.A. in the bidding process,
WSJ relates.  Fiat has an existing memorandum of understanding
with Avtovaz to explore ways in which the two companies could
share technology, parts and platforms.

"All of these auto makers are building their sales and production
networks [in Russia] organically, but it's not going quickly
enough to meet the targets they've set [for Russia]," Ivan Bonchev
at Ernst & Young Moscow told WSJ.

Moody's Investors Service affirmed its rating for General Motors
Corporation (B3 Corporate Family Rating, Ba3 senior secured, Caa1
senior unsecured and SGL-1 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating) but
changed the outlook to Stable from Positive.  In an environment of
weakening prospects for US auto sales GM has announced that it
will take a non-cash charge of $39 billion for the third quarter
of 2007 related to establishing a valuation allowance against its
deferred tax assets (DTAs) in the US, Canada and Germany.

GLOBAL POWER: Wants Removal Period Extended to Plan Effective Date
------------------------------------------------------------------
Global Power Equipment Group Inc. and its debtor-affiliates ask
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to extend,
until the effective date of their Plan of Reorganization, the
period wherein they may file notices of removal of civil actions.

Pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 9006(b), the Court extended the
removal period four times, the last extension being Dec. 31, 2007.

As of the date of bankruptcy, the Debtors were parties to numerous
civil actions pending in multiple courts and tribunals.
Specifically, the Debtors, since the entry of the fourth order
extending the removal period, have been focusing on various other
matters that are critical to the operation of their businesses in
Chapter 11.

The Debtors explained that they have spent an extensive amount of
time addressing numerous complex issues relating to the structure
of the their Plan and proposed rights offering.  Moreover, with
the confirmation of the Plan scheduled on Dec. 20, 2007, the
Debtors believe that it is appropriate at this time to extend the
removal deadline through the effective date of the Plan.

GOODYEAR TIRE: Board OKs Plan to Keep World Headquarters in Akron
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company Board of Directors has approved
a plan that, when finalized, will keep the company's world
headquarters in Akron, Ohio.

The company disclosed the tentative agreement this morning at a
joint press conference with representatives from the Industrial
Realty Group, the State of Ohio, the City of Akron and Summit
County.  The press conference was held at Goodyear's World
Technical Center, adjacent to the proposed future site of its new
headquarters building.

"I'm pleased to announce we have reached a tentative agreement
that will allow Goodyear to continue its 108-year history with the
City of Akron and the State of Ohio," Bob Keegan, Goodyear's
chairman and chief executive officer, said.  "These state-of-the-
art facilities will reflect the new Goodyear -- a place of bold
leadership and innovation -- and they will inspire future
generations of Goodyear associates."

The tentative agreement between Goodyear and IRG calls for
Goodyear to sell most of its Akron area property and facilities to
IRG.  And, IRG will construct a new world headquarters building, a
new headquarters for the company's North American Tire business,
and make improvements to the company's technical center and
research facilities.  Goodyear will lease the new buildings and
the existing technical center from IRG.

Now that Goodyear's Board of Directors has approved the proposal,
Goodyear and the other key groups can begin work on finalizing the
necessary details of the purchase and lease agreement which
includes securing public funding and other due diligence issues.

"This project has been called the most ambitious development
effort in the history of the City of Akron, and this announcement
represents a tremendous and truly historic success," Joe Gingo,
Goodyear's executive vice president and chief technical officer,
said.  "I cannot say enough about the positive spirit of
cooperation between all the groups who helped make this vision a
reality."

The proposal timeline includes breaking ground for Goodyear's new
buildings in 2008 and moving into the new facilities in 2010.

Separately, IRG has been working with the City of Akron, Summit
County and the State of Ohio to create a multi-phase development
of other parts of Goodyear's property into a mixed use retail and
commercial development -- to be called Akron Riverwalk.

Headquartered in Akron, Ohio, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company
(NYSE: GT) -- http://www.goodyear.com/-- is the world's largest
tire company.  The company manufactures tires, engineered rubber
products and chemicals in more than 90 facilities in 28
countries.  Goodyear's operations are located in Argentina,
Austria, Chile, Colombia, France, Italy, Guatemala, Jamaica,
Peru, Russia, among others.  Goodyear employs more than 80,000
people worldwide.

In June 2007, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its
ratings on Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., including its corporate
credit rating to 'BB-' from 'B+'.  These ratings still apply as of

The U.S. Trustee disclosed that the number of persons eligible and
willing to serve on such a committee is currently insufficient to
form an official committee.  The U.S. Trustee added that he will
appoint a committee upon the request of an adequate number of
eligible unsecured creditors.

GREENBELT CT: Wants to Hire Grossberg Company as Accountants
------------------------------------------------------------
Greenbelt CT Imaging Center LLC asks authority from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland to employ Grossberg
Company LLP as its accountant, nunc pro tunc to Sept. 16, 2007.

Grossberg Company will assist the Debtor in preparing monthly
operating reports, balance sheets, income statements, cash
reconciliations, and other financial documents that may be
requested by the creditors and parties-in-interest.

Additionally, the Debtor says that General Electric Capital
Corporation has requested the Debtor's permission to perform an
audit of the Debtor's business operations.  The Debtor has
indicated its consent to GECC's request but will require the
assistance of Grossberg Company with the audit.

Lawrence Rosenblum, a member of Grossberg Company, tells the Court
that firm's professionals and support staff bill $55 to $350 per
hour.  Prior to the Debtor's bankruptcy filing, the firm received
a retainer from the Debtor for $17,000.

Mr. Rosenblum assures the Court that the accounting firm is a
"disinterested person" as that term is defined in Section 101(14)
of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

                           Objections

General Electric Capital Corporation, the Debtor's secured lender,
objects to the accounting firm's employment, saying that the firm
has an undisclosed interest in a joint venture which is a creditor
of the estate.  GECC argues that Grossberg should be required to
make a fuller disclosure of all its relationships with the
Debtor's insiders.

W. Clarkson McDow, Jr., the United States Trustee for Region 4,
agrees with GECC.  The U.S. Trustee points out that Mr. Rosenblum,
in his affidavit, admitted that a joint venture took place in
which the accounting firm has a 25% ownership interest performed
services pre-bankruptcy for which it has not paid.

GECC believes that Grossberg may have received prepetition
preferential payments.  GECC says that the preferences must be
disgorged, as a condition of the employment.

Moreover, GECC objects to the retention insofar as Grossberg was
paid, on several occasions, from GECC's cash collateral, during
the months after GECC wrote the Debtor on July 2007, declaring
default and demanding that the Debtor turnover to GECC of all cash
proceeds of GECC's receivable collateral received.  GECC also
wants the payments to be disgorged to the Debtor's estate.

GS MORTGAGE: Fitch Junks Ratings on Three Certificate Classes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has taken these rating actions on GS Mortgage
Securities Corp. mortgage pass-through certificates.  Downgrades
total $24.3 million.  Break Loss percentages and Loss Coverage
Ratios for each class, rated B or higher, are included with the
rating actions as:

GSAMP Trust 2005-S1
  -- $12.6 million class M-2 downgraded to 'BBB' from 'A' and
     placed on Rating Watch Negative (BL: 53.84, LCR: 2.36)
  -- $7.6 million class B-1 downgraded to 'CCC/DR2' from 'BBB'
  -- $1.8 million class B-2 downgraded to 'C/DR5' from 'BB'
  -- $2.1 million class B-3 downgraded to 'C/DR6' from 'BB-'

Deal Summary
  -- Originators: 100% New Century
  -- 60+ day Delinquency: 32.6%;
  -- Realized Losses to date (% of Original Balance): 4.24%;
  -- Expected Remaining Losses (% of Current Balance): 22.84%;
  -- Cumulative Expected Losses (% of Original Balance): 6.52%.

The rating actions are based on changes that Fitch has made to its
subprime loss forecasting assumptions.  The updated assumptions
better capture the deteriorating performance of pools from 2007,
2006 and late 2005 with regard to continued poor loan performance
and home price weakness.  Minimum LCR's specifically for subprime
second lien transactions are as follows: AAA: 2.00; AA: 1.75; A:
1.50; BBB: 1.20; BB 0.95; B: 0.75.


GS MORTGAGE: Fitch Lowers Rating on $2.5MM Certs. to B from BBB
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has taken various rating actions on these GS
Mortgage Securities Corp. mortgage pass-through certificates:

Series 2005-SEA1
  -- $23.4 million class A, R-1, R-2 affirmed at 'AAA';
  -- $15.6 million class M-A affirmed at 'AA';
  -- $4.2 million class M-1 affirmed at 'AA';
  -- $11.2 million class M-2 rated 'A' placed on Rating Watch
     Negative;
  -- $5.6 million class B-1 downgraded to 'BB' from 'BBB+';
  -- $2.5 million class B-2 downgraded to 'B' from 'BBB';
  -- $2.5 million class B-3 downgraded to 'CC/DR3' from 'BBB-'.

The affirmations affect approximately $43.3 million of the
outstanding certificates and reflect a stable relationship between
credit enhancement and expected loss.  The downgrades, affecting
approximately $10.7 million and the $11.2 million class M-2 placed
on Rating Watch Negative are the result of deterioration in the
relationship between CE and expected losses.

The collateral of the above transactions primarily consists of
seasoned fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgage loans secured by
first and second liens on one- to four-family residential
properties.  The loans were acquired by GS Mortgage Corp. from
various originators.

The pool factor is 34%.  The transactions are 30 months seasoned.


GSAA HOME: Moody's Cuts Rating on Cl. I-M-4 Trusts to B2 from Ba3
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded three certificates from a
transaction issued by GSAA Home Equity Trust.  The transaction is
backed by second lien loans.  The certificates were downgraded
because the bonds' credit enhancement levels, including excess
spread and subordination were too low compared to the current
projected loss numbers at the previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months have continued to
erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine and senior
certificates.  Despite the large amount of write-offs due to
losses, the delinquency pipeline has remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that
the significant delinquency pipeline will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the senior and mezzanine
certificates.

Complete rating actions are:

Issuer: GSAA Home Equity Trust 2006-S1

  -- Cl. I-M-4, Downgraded to B2 from Ba3
  -- Cl. I-M-5, Downgraded to Caa2 from B3
  -- Cl. I-M-6, Downgraded to C from Ca


GSAMP TRUST: Low Credit Enhancement Cues Moody's to Cut Ratings
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 30 certificates and
confirmed the rating on one class of certificates from six
transactions issued by GSAMP Trust.  All transactions are backed
by second lien loans.  The certificates were downgraded because
the bonds' credit enhancement levels, including excess spread and
subordination, were too low compared to the current projected loss
numbers at the previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months have continued to
erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine and senior
certificates.  Despite the large amount of write-offs due to
losses, delinquency pipelines have remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that
the significant delinquency pipelines will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the senior and mezzanine
certificates.

The rating of Class A-2A from GSAMP Trust 2006-S1 was confirmed
due to the extra subordination it receives from Class A-2B.

GSAMP TRUST: Moody's Downgrades Ratings on 36 Tranches
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the ratings of 36
tranches and has placed under review for possible downgrade the
ratings of 4 tranches from 6 transactions issued by GSAMP Trust in
2007.  Additionally, one downgraded tranche remains on review for
possible further downgrade.  The collateral backing these classes
consists of primarily first lien, fixed and adjustable-rate,
subprime mortgage loans.

In its analysis, Moody's has combined its published methodology
updates as of July 13, 2007 to the non delinquent portion of the
transactions.  Collateral backing these transactions is also
experiencing higher than anticipated rates of delinquency,
foreclosure, and REO relative to credit enhancement levels.

HAWAIIAN AIRLINES: Mesa Air Posts $90 Million Bond
--------------------------------------------------
Mesa Air Group Inc. disclosed in a regulatory filing with the
Securities and Exchange Commission that it has posted a
$90 million bond in connection with its appeal of a bankruptcy
court ruling holding it liable for breach of a confidentiality
agreement with Hawaiian Airlines.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 2, 2007,
the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Hawaii
ruled in favor of Hawaiian Airlines in its lawsuit against Mesa
Air Group (Case No. 03-00817), awarding Hawaiian $80 million in
damages and ordering Mesa to pay Hawaiian's costs of litigation
and reasonable attorneys' fees.

According to Mesa, the bond amount covers the original judgment,
$4.7 million in legal fees, $3.4 million for a year's worth of
interest and $1.9 million for additional costs.

Mesa said it has funded the bond amount from cash on hand.

The Court's decision followed two weeks of court proceedings from
September 25 through October 4, 2007, including witness testimony
and presentation of evidence.  In a pre-trial hearing, the Court
made findings that:

   (1) Mesa kept confidential information it was supposed to
       destroy or return to Hawaiian in accordance with a
       signed confidentiality agreement;

   (2) Mesa misused the information it kept; and

   (3) the information Mesa kept was a substantial factor in
       the company's decision to enter the Hawaii market.

The $80 million in damages was awarded to compensate Hawaiian for
damages it suffered through October 2007.  The Court did not award
damages for any injury Hawaiian may sustain in the future as a
result of Mesa's misconduct.

INDYMAC HOME: Moody's Slices Rating on Class M-4 Certs. to B2
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 10 certificates and
placed on review for possible downgrade 2 certificates from two
transactions issued by IndyMac Home Equity Mortgage Loan Asset-
Backed Trust.  Both transactions are backed by second lien loans.
The certificates were downgraded or placed on review for possible
downgrade because the bonds' credit enhancement levels, including
excess spread and subordination, were too low compared to the
current projected loss numbers at the previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months have continued to
erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine and senior
certificates.  Despite the large amount of write-offs due to
losses, delinquency pipelines have remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that
the significant delinquency pipelines will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the senior and mezzanine
certificates.

Complete rating actions are:

Issuer: IndyMac Home Equity Mortgage Loan Asset-Backed Trust

INTERSTATE HOTELS: Inks $207.8 Million Venture with Harte Holdings
------------------------------------------------------------------
Interstate Hotels & Resorts has formed a joint venture with Harte
Holdings.  The joint venture signed a definitive agreement to
acquire four hotels from affiliates of The Blackstone Group for an
aggregate price of $207.8 million.

Interstate will invest approximately $11 million for a 20% equity
interest in the four hotels.  Interstate will fund the
acquisition with available cash and capacity under its senior
revolving credit facility.  The transaction is expected to close
in the first quarter of 2008.

The four properties included in the joint venture acquisition are:

   a) Property: Sheraton Frazer Great Valley
      Rooms: 198
      Location: Frazer, Pennsylvania (Phila MSA)

   b) Property: Sheraton Mahwah
      Rooms: 225
      Location: Mahwah, New Jersey

   c) Property:  Latham Hotel Georgetown
      Rooms: 142
      Location: Washington, DC

   d) Property: Hilton Lafayette
      Rooms: 327
      Location: Lafayette, Los Angeles

Interstate currently manages three of the properties and
previously managed the Latham hotel for the Blackstone Group and
MeriStar Hospitality.  Upon closing, Interstate will manage all
four hotels under new management agreements.

The partnership plans to invest more than $30 million of
additional funds for renovations on the hotels over the
24 months following the acquisition, with Interstate's
contribution expected to be approximately $2 million.

"This joint venture represents a continuation of our hotel real
estate ownership strategy and expands our JV partner universe,"
Thomas F. Hewitt, Interstate's chief executive officer, said. "The
four-hotel portfolio was attractively priced, at or below
replacement costs, and aligns well with our portfolio of wholly
owned and JV real estate holdings.

"The hotel package includes two key upscale, full-service brands,
Hilton and Sheraton, and a well-recognized independent boutique
hotel in Georgetown that offers significant repositioning
opportunity," Mr. Hewitt added.  "Three of the properties are
located in key urban and major suburban markets with strong
barriers to entry-Washington, D.C., northern New
Jersey, and the Philadelphia area.  The fourth property, the
Hilton in Lafayette, La., is having an exceptional year with
RevPAR growth in excess of 20%, and we expect the hotel to provide
strong, stable cash flow going forward. With the anticipated
capital investment, this entire portfolio has considerable upside
operating potential."

"As one of the few management/ownership companies with a strong
and growing international presence, we will continue to seek
global opportunities and relationships," Leslie Ng, Interstate's
chief investment officer, said.

"Harte Holdings is a highly regarded Irish investment and
development company which owns a wide variety of real estate
projects in the United Kingdom, Ireland and mainland Europe, and
we look forward to exploring other opportunities together, both
domestically and abroad," she added.

"This is our first hotel joint venture in the U.S., and
Interstate, with its successful track record, its management
expertise, and the advantages afforded by its size, represents a
very strong partner," Donal Kelleher, investment director of Harte
Holdings, said.  "We look forward to expanding our relationship
with other similar opportunities."

as its largest unsecured creditor with a claim of $915,000 for
contract dispute.  Mr. Gertmenian has been named as a member of
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

Waldrop's views comes as no surprise.

L TERSIGNI: U.S. Trustee Wants Case Converted to Chapter 7
----------------------------------------------------------
Diana G. Adams, the United States Trustee for Region 2, asks the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut to
convert L. Tersgini Consulting CPA, P.C.'s Chapter 11 case to a
Chapter 7 liquidation proceeding.

The U.S. Trustee argues, among others, that the Debtor's case
should be converted because:

   a) in light of Loreto Tersigni's significant role in the
      Debtor's fraud, it is probable that the Debtor will have
      breach of duty and other claims against Mr. Tersigni; and

   b) the sole fiduciary in charge of the Debtor, Nancy Tersigni,
      is incapable of investigating a claim against Mr.
      Tergsigni's probate estate.

The U.S. Trustee points out that Nancy Tersigni has conflicting
interest in protecting Mr. Tersigni's reputation in avoiding
factual findings that could make it difficult to defend any
indemnification that the Debtor might have against the probate
estate for claims related to the asbestos cases.

Furthermore, the U.S. Trustee says, the Debtor's Chapter 11
liquidation plan fails the best interest creditors test pursuant
to Section 1129(a)(7)(A)(ii) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Based in Stamford, Connecticut, L. Tersigni Consulting CPA, P.C.
was engaged in the business of accounting and financial advisor to
various constituencies in mattters relating to claims asserted
primarily in asbestos litigation and asbestos related bankruptcy
cases.  The company filed for chapter 11 protection on Nov. 14,
2007 (Bankr. D. Conn. Case No. 07-50702).  Carol A. Felicetta,
Esq., at Reid and Riege, P.C., represents the Debtor in its
restructuring efforts.  No Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors has been appointed in this case to date.  The Debtor's
schedules listed total assets of $2,229,659 and total debts of
$246,564.

MBIA INC: Shrinks Hudson Thames SIV to $400 Million
---------------------------------------------------
MBIA Inc. is winding down its structured investment vehicle after
an attempt to sell the SIV's short-term debt, which began August
2007, failed, Bloomberg News reports citing CFO Chuck Chaplin.

Mr. Chaplin said MBIA's asset sales to bondholders has shrunk its
Hudson Thames Capital SIV to about US$400 million from US$2
billion, Bloomberg relates.  The bond insurer has also taken an
impairment on its own US$15.8 million equity stake, Mr. Chaplin
added.

According to Bloomberg's Christine Richard and Neil Unmack, SIVs
are collapsing because investors are staying away from asset-
backed debt in light of the U.S. subprime crisis.  SIVs borrow
short-term debt to buy higher yielding assets, Bloomberg relates.

                   Pershing Sees Insolvency
                     Absent More Capital

Meanwhile, Pershing Square Capital Management's William Ackman
said MBIA could be insolvent as early as the second quarter of
2008 if it fails to access additional capital, Reuters relates.
Mr. Ackman estimates up to US$2.2 billion in losses at MBIA in the
fourth quarter of 2007, Reuters adds.

MERRILL LYNCH: Fitch Holds 'BB-' Rating on Class B-5 Certs.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed these classes of Merrill Lynch Credit
Corporation mortgage pass-through certificates:

Series 2004-D:

  -- Class A at 'AAA';
  -- Class B-1 at 'AA+';
  -- Class B-2 at 'AA-';
  -- Class B-3 at 'A-';
  -- Class B-4 at 'BBB-';
  -- Class B-5 at 'BB-'.

The collateral in the aforementioned transaction consists of
adjustable-rate mortgages extended to prime borrowers secured by
first liens on primarily one- to four-family residential
properties.  At issuance, the mortgage loans for series 2004-D
were originated or acquired in accordance with the underwriting
guidelines of Merrill Lynch Credit Corporation.

The affirmations reflect a satisfactory relationship between
credit enhancement and future loss expectations and affect
approximately $273.2 million of outstanding certificates.  As of
the Oct. 25, 2007 distribution date, the trust is seasoned 38
months and has a pool factor (current balance as a percentage of
the original balance) of 18%.  The cumulative losses to date are
0.02% and the 60+ delinquency (inclusive of loans in foreclosure
and REO) is 0.65%.

The loans are being serviced by PHH Mortgage Corporation, which is
rated 'RPS1-' by Fitch, and on Rating Watch Negative.


MERRILL LYNCH: Moody's Lowers Rating on Class B-2 Certs. to B3
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 11 certificates and
placed on review for possible downgrade 1 class of certificates
from two transactions issued by Merrill Lynch Mortgage Investors
Trust.  Both transactions are backed by second lien loans.  The
certificates were downgraded or placed on review for possible
downgrade because the bonds' credit enhancement levels, including
excess spread and subordination, were too low compared to the
current projected loss numbers at the previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses of over the last few months have continued
to erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine and senior
certificates.  Despite the large amount of write-offs due to
losses, delinquency pipelines have remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that
the significant delinquency pipelines will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the senior and mezzanine
certificates.

Complete rating actions are:

Issuer: Merrill Lynch Mortgage Investors Trust 2006-SL1

  -- Class B-1, Downgraded to Ba2 from Baa3;
  -- Class B-2, Downgraded to B3 from Ba1;
  -- Class B-3, Downgraded to Caa2 from Ba3;
  -- Class B-4, Downgraded to Ca from B3;

Issuer: Merrill Lynch Mortgage Investors Trust 2006-SL2

  -- Class M-2, Placed on Review for Possible Downgrade,
     currently Aa3;
  -- Class M-3, Downgraded to Baa3 from A2;
  -- Class M-4, Downgraded to Ba2 from Baa1;
  -- Class M-5, Downgraded to B2 from Baa2;

MONITOR OIL: Bondholders Want Chapter 11 Case Dismissed
-------------------------------------------------------
Bondholders holding claims aggregating $50 million ask the Hon.
Martin Glenn of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York to dismiss the Chapter 11 cases of Monitor
Oil, P.L.C., and its debtor-affiliates, in order for their
insolvency cases in Britain and the Cayman Islands to proceed, the
Associated press reports.

The AP reports that according to the bondholders, the Debtors have
no operations in the United States since its headquarters is
located in London while the oil drilling business in on the North
Sea.

The bondholders further add that by dismissing the U.S. case, it
would be cheaper and more efficient for Ernst & Young, the court-
appointed monitor, to oversee the cases, the AP relates.

The Court has set a hearing on December 18, 2007, to decide
whether to dismiss that Debtors' cases or not.

Monitor Oil, P.L.C. -- htpp://www.monitoroil.com/ --  an oil and
gas service company that provides oil and gas production
solutions, offshore services and engineering services.  The
company and two of its affiliates,  Monitor Single Lift 1, Ltd.,
and Monitor US FinCo, Inc., filed for Chapter 11 Protection on

Schnabel, Esq., at Dorsey & Whitney, L.L.P., represents the
Debtor.  As of June 30, 2007, the company disclosed total assets
of 130,000,000 and total debts of $247,800,0003.3710.

NASDAQ STOCK: Qatar Holding Withdraws from OMX AB Bidding Race
--------------------------------------------------------------
Qatar Holding, a subsidiary of the Qatari Investment Authority,
withdraws its application for 100% stock ownership assessment for
Nordic and Baltic exchange OMX AB, according to The Swedish
Financial Supervisory Authority, bringing the consortium of Nasdaq
Stock Market Inc. of the United States and Borse Dubai Ltd. of the
United Arab Emirates closer to reaching a buyout deal with OMX.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 28, 2007,
Borse Dubai has raised its cash offer to SEK265 for each share in
OMX.  Borse Dubai has also changed the acceptance level condition
under its offer from more than 90% to more than 50%.  The other
terms and conditions of the Borse Dubai Offer remain the same as
announced on Aug. 17, 2007, by Borse Dubai, and on Sept. 20, 2007,
by Borse Dubai and The NASDAQ Stock.

NASDAQ and Borse Dubai are joining efforts to provide a
compelling, long-term enhancement and growth strategy for OMX and
the Nordic and Baltic region.  Borse Dubai and NASDAQ have now
secured irrevocable undertakings from Investor AB (publ), Nordea
Bank AB (publ), Olof Stenhammar, Didner & Gerge Fonder AB,
Nykredit Realkredit A/S and Magnus Bocker, who in aggregate hold
approximately 18.5% of the total number of votes and shares in
OMX, at the increased price of Borse Dubai's cash offer.

The combination of Borse Dubai's shares in OMX, the option

NEW CENTURY: Asks Court to Extend Exclusivity Period to Dec. 28
---------------------------------------------------------------
New Century Financial Corp. and its debtor-affiliates ask the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to
extend the period during which they have the exclusive right to:

   (i) file a Chapter 11 plan, by approximately 30 days, through
       and including Dec. 28, 2007; and

  (ii) solicit acceptances of that plan through and including
       Feb. 27, 2008, or approximately 60 days after
       expiration of the exclusive filing period.

Christopher M. Samis, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A.,
in Wilmington, Del. relates that the Debtors' focus on a number of
issues, as well as addressing numerous other matters attendant to
their Chapter 11 cases, have made it impossible to formulate,
promulgate and building consensus regarding a Chapter 11 plan any
earlier than the extended dates proposed by the Debtors.  Among
other things, the Debtors have dedicated substantial resources to
cooperating in government investigations and with the Court-
approved examiner.

The Debtors tell the Court that they still have to finalize the
the terms of the plan, but they believe that it can be filed
within the requested extension of the exclusive filing period.

According to the Debtors, they do not want to file the plan
prematurely, especially when they have almost completed one that
will be supported by the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors and other key constituencies.

The Court will convene a hearing on Dec. 20, 2007, at 1:30 p.m.,
to consider the Debtor's request.  Pursuant to Del.Bankr.LR
9006-2, the exclusive plan filing period is automatically
extended until the conclusion of that hearing.

Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors selected Hahn & Hessen
as its bankruptcy counsel and Blank Rome LLP as its co-counsel.
When the Debtors filed for bankruptcy, they listed total assets of
$36,276,815 and total debts of $102,503,950.

NEW CENTURY: Asks Court to Maintain 1st Examiner Report Under Seal
------------------------------------------------------------------
New Century Financial Corporation and its debtor-affiliates ask
the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to
direct the Bankruptcy Clerk to maintain under seal the first
interim report of Michael J. Missal, Court-appointed examiner,
filed on Nov. 21, 2007.

Christopher M. Samis, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A.,
in Wilmington, Del., states that the Cash Collateral Report
contains information subject to attorney-client and attorney work
product privileges.

Mr. Samis tells the Court that since the examiner's appointment
and the initiation of its investigation, the NCFC Board of
Directors have consistently instructed the company and its
professionals to cooperate fully with the examiner.  The Debtors
have ensured that they are not producing privileged documents
that could jeopardize the estates claims and defenses, in
connection with certain key disputes.

However, Mr. Samis discloses that with respect to other topics,
the Debtors have produced privileged documents and information to
the examiner, in reliance on the provisions of the Examiner Order
on keeping under seal any portion that discloses the privileged
information.

Mr. Samis explains that in the course of the examiner's
investigation, the Debtors decided that it was necessary to
disclose the attorney-client privileged information to the
examiner, regarding certain master repurchase agreement
counterparties and the Debtors' prepetition use of cash
collateral.

According to Mr. Samis, when the Examiner completed and filed the
Cash Collateral Report on November 21, it detailed a meeting with
the Debtors and explained its understanding of the Debtors' legal
position with respect to the MRAs, and reported that the Debtors
advised that it was wrong.

Mr. Samis says that while the examiner does not quote the
privileged information, it follows that it must be the opposite
of the examiner's prior incorrect understanding, detailed in the
report.  The privileged information pertains to one of the
central and pending legal disputes in the Debtors' case.  It is
also inexorably intertwined with all of the substantive portions
of the Cash Collateral Report.

The Debtors strongly disagree with a large portion of the Cash
Collateral Report.  Accordingly, they feel compelled to file a
substantive response which will also be filed under seal, since
it will center on privileged legal advice and analysis.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 24, 2007,
any report filed by the examiner will be filed initially under
seal, with copies to the Debtors, the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors, and the Office of the United States Trustee.
The Creditors Committee and the U.S. Trustee will maintain and
protect the report's status as under seal, and will not disclose
any information contained in the report.  The examiner's
provision of the report to the Court, the Creditors Committee,
and the U.S. Trustee does not constitute a waiver of the Debtors'
privileges or protection with respect to the information.

NEW CENTURY: IRS Opposes Debtors' Motion for Automatic Stay
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service tells the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware that it opposes the
request of New Century TRS Holdings Inc., New Century Financial
Corp., and their direct and indirect subsidiaries, to enforce the
automatic stay against their agency.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 22, 2007, the
aforementioned Debtors told the Court that withholding the tax
refund is a violation of Section 362(a)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code,
which prohibits a non-debtor from exercising control over property
of a debtor's estate.  Debtors added that the IRS has not
established an assessed liability or a pending action over the
Debtors' outstanding tax liability, hence, it could not set off
against any pending refunds.  Accordingly, the Debtors asked the
Court to direct the release of the tax refund without further
delay.

Jan M. Geht, the trial attorney at the Tax Division of the U.S.
Department of Justice, states that the IRS has not yet determined
whether the Debtors are entitled to a tax refund.  Additionally,
in the event that the Court rules that the deadline has passed,
it does not have any jurisdiction to order any relief for the
IRS' failure to act.

Mr. Geht notes that Section 6411 of the Tax Code states that the
Commissioner will act within 90 days from the later of:

   (1) the date the application is filed; or

   (2) the last day of the month in which falls the last date for
       filing the return for the year of the net operating loss.

According to Mr. Geht, the Debtors obtained an extension until
September 15, to file the application, thus the IRS has until
December 31 to act on the application for a tax refund.  Since
the IRS has not wrongfully withheld the tax refund, it has not
violated the automatic stay.

Mr. Geht argues that pursuant to Section 6411(b) of the Tax Code,
the Court cannot review the IRS' decision to disallow a claim for
refund.  Moreover, Section 6411 does not set forth consequences
for failure to act within the 90-day period.  Accordingly, the
IRS, he says, did not violate the automatic stay by failing to
act on the Debtors' request.

Mr. Geht states that the Debtors' only recourse is to file a
formal claim for refund; the Court will then have jurisdiction,
under Section 505 of the Bankruptcy Code, to determine whether
the refund was wrongfully held.

NUTRITIONAL SOURCING: Exclusive Plan Filing Date Moved to Mar. 3

The sale of Orlando CityPlace LLC and its debtor-affiliates'
228 unit condominium conversion in Orlando, Florida is subject
to approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District
of Florida at a hearing set for Dec. 20, 2007, Bill Rochelle of
Bloomberg News reports.

The Debtors earlier sought additional time to sell the property,
known as The Lexington Hotel, to allow the highest bidders
to complete their due diligence report and for other interested
parties to make bids.

According to Jerry W. Jackson of the Orlando Sentinel, the
Debtors previously set the minimum bid at $30 million,
but finally settled for "firm" bids after no purchaser made a
bid equal or more than the required amount.

Based in Orlando, Florida, Orlando CityPlace LLC and its

OWNIT MORTGAGE: Moody's Junks Ratings on Four Certificate Classes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 8 certificates from Ownit
Mortgage Trust 2006-OT1.  The transaction is backed by second lien
loans.  The certificates were downgraded because the bonds' credit
enhancement levels, including excess spread and subordination,
were too low compared to the current projected loss numbers at the
previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months have continued to
erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine certificates.
Despite the large amount of write-offs due to losses, the
delinquency pipeline has remained high as borrowers continue to
default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that the
significant delinquency pipeline will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the mezzanine certificates.

Complete rating actions are:

Issuer: Ownit Mortgage Trust 2006-OT1

  -- Class M-1, Downgraded to Baa2 from A2;
  -- Class M-2, Downgraded to Ba2 from Baa1;
  -- Class M-3, Downgraded to Ba3 from Baa2;

RAVELSTON CORP: Fined $7MM for Fraud; Must Pay $6MM in Restitution
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Amy J. St. Eve of the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Illinois fined Ravelston Corp. $7 million and
ordered the company to pay $6 million to Sun-Times Media Group
Inc., in restitution for its role in shareholder fraud, the
Associated Press reports.

Robert Kofman of RSM Richter Inc., Ravelston's receiver, told AP
that Ravelston had already paid $32 million in losses to Sun-Times
Media, formerly known as Hollinger International.  Mr. Kofman
figured around $60 million in payment for Ravelston to get through
the secured debt.  "The prospect of any money being paid on the
fine or the restitution order I would say is highly remote," Mr.
Kofman was cited by AP as saying.

Conrad Black, who no longer owns Ravelston, will be sentenced on
Dec. 10, 2007 for fraud and money-laundering, along with former
Hollinger chief financial officer Jack Boultbee, counsel Peter Y.
Atkinson, and former Hollinger corporate secretary Mark Kipnis.

The affirmations, affecting approximately $6.2 billion of
outstanding certificates, reflect a stable relationship between
credit enhancement and future loss expectations.  The downgrades,
affecting approximately $292.9 million in outstanding
certificates, and classes placed on Rating Watch Negative,
affecting approximately $120.3 million of outstanding
certificates, reflect deterioration in the relationship between CE
and loss expectation.

The collateral of the above transactions primarily consists of 30-
and 15-year fixed-rate mortgage loans extended to Alt-A borrowers
and are secured by first liens, primarily on one- to four-family
residential properties.  As of the October 2007 distribution date,
the above transactions are seasoned from 12 (series 2006-QS15) to
29 (series 2005-QS9) months.  The pool factors (current mortgage
loan principal outstanding as a percentage of the initial pool)
range from 61% (series 2005-QO4) to 83% (series 2006-QS15).  GMAC-
RFC (rated 'RMS2+' by Fitch) is the master servicer for the
abovementioned transactions.


REVLON CONSUMER: Note Repayment Cues Moody's to Hold Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed all of the ratings of Revlon
Consumer Products Corporation but revised the outlook to positive
from negative.

The revision of the outlook to positive reflects the elimination
of a significant near-term maturity following the company's
announcement that it intends to repay in full the $167.4 million
of remaining 8 5/8% senior subordinated notes in a manner that is
neutral to bondholders by retaining a $170 million senior
subordinated term loan from its indirect parent company,
MacAndrews and Forbes.  The revised outlook also reflects Revlon's
success in achieving its financial targets for the last twelve
month period ending September 2007 and the resulting significant
improvement in profitability and credit metrics.

"While Revlon's financial performance has significantly improved
and market share trends have stabilized over the last twelve
months, the company still needs to demonstrate that these gains
are sustainable while at the same time achieving profitable growth
in its core Revlon and Almay franchises," says Moody's Vice
President Janice Hofferber.

These ratings of Revlon were affirmed:

  -- Corporate family rating at Caa1;
  -- Probability of default rating at Caa1;
  -- $160 million senior secured asset based revolving credit
     facility due 2012 at B1 (point estimate revised to LGD 2,
     12% from LGD 2, 11%);
  -- $840 million senior secured term loan facility due 2012 at
     B3 (point estimate revised to LGD 3, 37% from LGD 3, 36%);
  -- $387 million 9.5% senior notes due 2011 at Caa2 (point
     estimate revised to LGD 4, 63% from LGD 4, 61%);
  -- $167 million 8.625% senior subordinated notes due 2008 at
     Caa3 (point estimate revised to LGD 6, 94% from LGD 6,
     93%); and
  -- Speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-4

Outlook revised to positive from negative.

Revlon's Caa1 corporate family rating reflects the weak free cash
flow, high leverage and weak liquidity profile of the company.
The Caa1 rating also incorporates the remaining refinancing risks
that Revlon faces due to the relatively short maturity date of the
newly provided term loan (matures August 1, 2009), as well as the
ongoing financial and operational challenges the company continues
to face.  While Moody's views M&F's agreement to provide Revlon
with a $170 million senior subordinated term loan as helpful in
the near term, but notes that the short dated maturity of the term
loan as well as the expiration of M&F's existing $50 million back-
up line of credit at closing will continue to strain liquidity.
Nevertheless, M&F's willingness to provide this critical financing
as well as its track record of supporting Revlon over the last
several years by backstopping equity rights offerings and by
providing back-up liquidity, is an important ratings factor.

The positive outlook reflects Moody's recognition that the company
has eliminated a significant near-term maturity and that its
credit metrics and financial performance have meaningfully
improved.  Accordingly, profitability and cash flow generation
have improved such that EBITA margins are now approaching 10% and
free cash flow usage has substantially improved.  In addition,
other key credit metrics, while still more consistent with a Caa
issuer, are also stronger -- EBITDA to interest coverage ratios
are now in excess of 1.6 times and Debt to EBITDA was 6.7 times
for the last twelve month period ending September 2007 (using
Moody's standard analytic adjustments).

Nevertheless, Revlon will need to demonstrate a longer track
record of financial stability and profitable market share growth
given the still leveraged profile, negative free cash flow and
need to refinance the M&F term loan by August 2009. Revlon's
highly leveraged profile and liquidity constraints remain on-going
rating concerns as the company participates in an industry segment
that requires material upfront brand support, fixture, and product
development expenditures with uncertain consumer receptivity.

Moody's affirmation of Revlon's speculative grade liquidity rating
of SGL-4 reflects the company's still weak cash flow from
operations and inability to satisfy its basic cash requirements
through internal sources with no additional need for external
financing.  In addition, while the agreement with M&F to provide a
$170 million senior subordinated loan satisfies a critical
requirement in its 8 5/8% senior note indenture in a way that is
not detrimental to bondholders and has a positive impact on
liquidity, the short term maturity date of the term loan will
require another significant financing.  Revlon's resolution of
these two critical factors would likely lead to an upgrade in its
speculative grade liquidity rating.

Headquartered in New York, Revlon Consumer Products Corporation is
a worldwide cosmetics, skin care, fragrance, and personal care
products company.  The company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Revlon, Inc., which is majority-owned by MacAndrews & Forbes,
which is in turn wholly-owned by Ronald O. Perelman.  Revlon's net
sales for the twelve-month period ended September 2007 were
approximately $1.4 billion.  MacAndrews & Forbes beneficially owns
approximately 57% of Revlon's outstanding Class A common stock,
100% of Revlon's Class B common stock and 60% of the Revlon's
combined outstanding shares of Class A and Class B common stock,
which together represent approximately 74% of the combined voting
power of such shares.


RH DONNELLEY: $100MM Stock Repurchase Won't Affect Fitch's IDR
--------------------------------------------------------------
R.H. Donnelley announced that its board has authorized a $100
million stock repurchase plan over 12 months.  This announcement
will not affect Fitch's 'B+' Issuer Default Ratings on R.H.
Donnelley Corp, R.H. Donnelley, Inc., Dex Media, Inc., Dex Media
East and Dex Media West or the security ratings.

RHD affirmed its 2007 guidance and announced its expectations for
2008: $2,745 in ad sales, $1,440 in EBITDA, $620 million in free
cash flow and $9.5 billion in year-end net debt.  Within the
framework of RHD's 2008 guidance, Fitch expects the company to
repay as much as $300 million in debt next year.

Fitch believes management will continue to balance debt repayment
with returns of capital to shareholders, including the recently
instituted dividend.  Fitch also expects leverage levels will
remain above management's stated target of 5.5 times for the next
three to five years.  There has been and remains capacity for some
sustained top line revenue softness and modest additional
shareholder friendly actions incorporated into the IDR.  The
Rating Outlook remains Stable.

Fitch currently rates RHD and its subsidiaries as:

R.H. Donnelley Corp. (RHD Holding Company)
  -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'B+';
  -- Senior unsecured 'B/RR5'.

R.H. Donnelley Inc. (Operating Company; subsidiary of RHD)
  -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'B+';
  -- Bank facility 'BB+/RR1';
  -- Senior unsecured 'BB+/RR1'.

Dex Media, Inc. (Dex Holding Company; subsidiary of RHD)
  -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'B+';
  -- Senior unsecured 'B/RR5'.

Dex Media East, Inc. (Operating Company; subsidiary of Dex)
  -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'B+';
  -- Bank facility 'BB+/RR1'.

Dex Media West, Inc. (Operating Company; subsidiary of Dex)
  -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'B+';
  -- Bank facility affirmed at 'BB+/RR1';
  -- Senior unsecured 'BB+/RR1';
  -- Senior subordinated 'B/RR5'.

SACO I: Moody's Downgrades Ratings on 65 Certificate Classes
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 65 certificates, placed
on review for possible downgrade 8 certificates, and confirmed the
rating on 1 class of certificates from nine transactions issued by
SACO I Trust.  All transactions are backed by second lien loans.
The certificates were downgraded or placed on review for possible
downgrade because the bonds' credit enhancement levels, including
excess spread and subordination, were too low compared to the
current projected loss numbers at the previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months have continued to
erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine and senior
certificates.  Despite the large amount of write-offs due to
losses, delinquency pipelines have remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that
the significant delinquency pipelines will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the senior and mezzanine
certificates.

The rating of Class II-A-2 from SACO I Trust 2006-5 was confirmed
due to the extra subordination it receives from Class II-A-3.

SALANDER-O'REILLY: U.S. Trustee Wants Ch. 11 Trustee Appointed
--------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Trustee for Region 2 filed a request with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
for an appointment of a chapter 11 trustee in Salander-O'Reilly
Galleries LLC's bankruptcy case, Bill Rochelle of Bloomberg
News reports.

According to the report, the U.S. Trustee argued in her motion
that the gallery's selection of an outside chief restructuring
officer did not obviate the need for a formal trustee.

The hearing to consider the U.S. Trustee's request has
been set for Dec. 13, 2007, Bloomberg says.

Established in 1976, New York-based Salander-O'Reilly Galleries
LLC -- http://www.salander.com/-- exhibits and manages fine art
from renaissance to contemporary.  On Nov. 1, 2007, three
creditors filed an involuntary chapter 7 petition against the
gallery (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case Number 07-13476).  The petitioners,
Carol F. Cohen of Two Swans Farm, Cavallon Family LP, and Richard
Ellenberg, disclosed total claims of more than $5 million.  Amos
Alter, Esq., at Troutman Sanders LLP and John Koegel, Esq., at The
Koegel Group LLP represent the petitioners.

On Nov. 9, 2007, the Debtor's case was converted to a chapter 11
proceeding (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 07-30005).  Alan D. Halperin,
Esq., at Halperin Battaglia Raicht, LLP, represents the gallery.

Salander-O'Reilly Galleries is owned by Lawrence B. Salander and
his wife, Julie D. Salander, of Millbrook, New York.  The couple
also has membership interests in galleries including non-debtor
entities, Renaissance Art Investors and Salander Decorative Arts
LLC.  The couple filed for chapter 11 protection on Nov. 2, 2007
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 07-36735).  Douglas E. Spelfogel, Esq.
and Richard J. Bernard, Esq. at Baker & Hostetler LLP and Susan P.
Persichilli, Esq. at Buchanan Ingersoll PC represent the Debtors
in their restructuring efforts.  When they filed for bankruptcy,
Mr. and Mrs. Salander listed assets and debts between $50 million
and $100 million.

Prior to bankruptcy, Mr. Salander resigned as Salander-O'Reilly
Galleries' manager and turned over the control to Triax Capital
Advisors LLC, an independent turnaround firm.

SHAW GROUP: Expects $19 Million Net Loss for Fiscal Year 2007
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Shaw Group Inc. disclosed that despite its best efforts to
file its fiscal 2007 financial results on Form 10-K with the
Securities and Exchange Commission by Dec. 4, 2007, it has not
completed the filing.  While the financial statements are
substantially complete, the company has not concluded its
evaluation of deferred taxes.  Shaw is working diligently to
complete this process as soon as possible.  The company previously
announced that the net loss for fiscal 2007 would be in the range
of $15 to $19 million. Based on its work to date, the company
believes that the net loss will approximate $19 million.  Shaw
continues to estimate its operating cash flow for 2007 will exceed
$460 million and its Aug. 31, 2007, backlog of unfilled orders
will be a record $14.3 billion.

The company believes that the financial reporting process will be
completed within the next several days.  However, the timing of
the filing and the anticipated results for fiscal 2007 remain
subject to completion of the deferred tax evaluation, any changes
in estimates or other matters that may arise up to the filing of
the 2007 Form 10-K.

Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, The Shaw Group Inc. (NYSE: SGR)
-- http://www.shawgrp.com/-- provides services to the
environmental, infrastructure and homeland security markets,
including consulting, engineering, construction, remediation and

its Shaw Power Technologies, Inc. and Shaw Power Technologies

Distribution Inc., a unit of Siemens AG.

The company has operations in Chile, China, Malaysia, the United
Kingdom and, Venezuela, among others.

                          *     *     *

credit rating on The Shaw Group Inc. and removed it from
CreditWatch, where it was placed with negative implications in
October 2006.  S&P said the outlook is stable.

the $100 million increase to the company's revolving credit
facility.


SINOBIOMED INC: Sept. 30 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by $6.2 Million
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sinobiomed Inc.'s consolidated balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2007,
showed $16.7 million in total assets, $22.9 million in total
liabilities, and $52,146 in minority interest, resulting in a
$6.2 million total shareholders' deficit.

At Sept. 30, 2007, the company's consolidated balance sheet also
showed strained liquidity with $9.3 million in total current
assets available to pay $22.7 million in total current
liabilities.

The company reported a net loss of $1.2 million on sales of
$4.1 million for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007, compared
with a net loss of $376,202 on sales of $183,076 in the third
quarter of 2006.

Revenues for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2007, includes
approximately $3.9 million or two months of revenues from Suzhou
Bioai Medical Development Company, a pharmaceutical distribution
company which Sinobiomed acquired on Aug. 6 2007.

Operating expenses increased from $705,133 for the three months
ended Sept. 30, 2006, to $2,063,404 for the three months ended
Sept. 30, 2007.  This increase was primarily due to an increase in
general and administrative expenses and an expense relating to
stock-based compensation, being recorded in 2007.

Results for the three month period ending Sept. 30, 2007, also
included income from forgiveness of interest on debt in the amount
of $2.3 million and write down of goodwill in the amount of
$1.5 million arising from the the excess acquisition price paid
over the fair values of the net assets acquired from Suzhou Boai
on Aug. 6, 2007.

                            Liquidity

At Sept. 30, 2007, the company had approximately $1.7 million of
cash on hand and a working capital deficiency of $13.4 million.
The company believes that its cash on hand as at Sept. 30, 2007,
the funds raised subsequent to September 30 in the amount of
$822,507, and the funds it plans to raise from additional equity
financing, and its future revenues from its new products currently
entering the market will enable the company to meet its working
capital needs and its debt service requirements for the following
12 months.

Full-text copies of the company's consolidated financial
statements for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007, are available for

Schumacher & Associates Inc., in Denver, expressed substantial
doubt about Sinobiomed Inc.'s ability to continue as a going

pointed to the company's operating losses since inception,
negative working capital and $-0- cash as of Dec. 31, 2006.

SOUNDVIEW HOME: Moody's Slices Rating on Cl. M-2 Certs. to Ba1
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 8 certificates and placed
on review for possible downgrade one class of certificates from
Soundview Home Loan Trust 2006-A.  The transaction is backed by
second lien loans.  The certificates were downgraded or placed on
review for possible downgrade because the bonds' credit
enhancement levels, including excess spread and subordination,
were too low compared to the current projected loss numbers at the
previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months have continued to
erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine and senior
certificates.  Despite the large amount of write-offs due to
losses, the delinquency pipeline has remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that
the significant delinquency pipeline will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the senior and mezzanine
certificates.

ST BERNARD: Sept. 30 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by $4.0 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
St. Bernard Software Inc.'s consolidated balance sheet at
Sept. 30, 2007, showed $16.7 million in total assets and
$20.7 million in total liabilities, resulting in a $4.0 million
total stockholders' deficit.

At Sept. 30, 2007, the company's consolidated balance sheet also
showed strained liquidity with $7.1 million in total current
assets available to pay $14.9 million in total current
liabilities.

The company reported net income of $2.2 million on total sales of
$4.5 million for the the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2007,
compared with a net loss of $879,922 on total sales of
$5.7 million in the comparable period of 2006.

The net income for the current quarter primarily resulted from an
$8.0 million gain on the sale of the company's Open File Manager
product line to EVault Inc. in August 2007, offset by an increase
in net operating expenses of $2.6 million.  The increase in net
operating expenses consisted primarily of an impairment charge
related to the intangible assets in connection with the
acquisition of AgaveOne of approximately $3.3 million.

The company reported revenues of $14.9 million for the first nine
months of 2007 compared to $16.5 million in the same period last
year, a decrease of 9.7%.  Net loss for the first nine months of
2007 was $3.5 million, compared to a net loss of $3.3 million in
the same period last year.

Cash used in operations for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2007,
was $9.7 million compared to cash used during the nine months
ended Sept. 30, 2006, of $3.5 million.

On May 15, 2007, the company established a line of credit with
Silicon Valley Bank, terminating its line of credit with Camel
Financial.  The balance on the line of credit with SVB was
$1.0 million as of Sept. 30, 2007.

STILLWATER MINING: Weak Performance Cues Moody's to Cut Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service lowered the corporate family rating of
Stillwater Mining Company to B2 from B1.  At the same time,
Moody's lowered Stillwater's senior secured rating to B2 (LGD3,
44%) from B1 and senior unsecured rating to Caa1 (LGD6, 93%) from
B3.  The lowering of the rating reflects Stillwater's weak
operating and financial performance over the last three quarters
and our view that the company will continue to underachieve in the
near term, given its high employee attrition rate, reduced skill
level of the labor force, slow progression towards more
physically-demanding selective mining methods, and high capex
requirements.

Moody's believe that the company's production, earnings, and cash
flow will continue to be challenged and that the company's
liquidity will continue to deteriorate as it funds its significant
capex program.  Finally, the rating considers that the company has
a relatively modest cushion under its debt to EBITDA financial
covenant and may require covenant relief if its earnings
deteriorate from current levels.  The rating outlook is stable.

Ratings Lowered:

  -- Corporate Family Rating to B2 from B1
  -- Probability of Default Rating to B2 from B1
  -- $98.6 million Term Loan Facility due 2010 to B2 (LGD3,
     44%) from B1
  -- $40 million Revolving Credit Facility due 2009, to B2
     (LGD3, 44%) from B1
  -- $29.4 million 8% State of Montana Revenue Bonds due 2020
     to Caa1 (LGD6, 93%) from B3

Moody's last rating action on Stillwater was a downgrade of the
corporate family rating to B1 (from Ba3) in August 2006.

Stillwater Mining Company is a Billings, Montana based miner of
palladium and platinum that had 2006 revenues of $613 million.


STRUCTURED ASSET: Moody's Lowers Ratings on 37 Certificates
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 37 certificates from five
transactions issued by Structured Asset Securities Corporation
Mortgage Loan Trust.  Each of the five SASCO transactions is
backed by second lien residential mortgage loans.  The
certificates were downgraded because relative to the previous
Moody's ratings, the respective credit enhancement levels of the
37 certificates, which include excess spread and subordination,
were low compared to the current projected loss numbers.

Substantial pool losses over the last few months have continued to
erode credit enhancement available to the senior and mezzanine
certificates.  In addition to the large amounts of write-offs due
to losses, delinquency pipelines have remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The ratings actions reflect Moody's
expectation that the significant delinquency pipelines will have a
further negative impact on the credit support for the senior and
mezzanine certificates.

SWEET TRADITIONS: Wants to Employ Ice Miller as Special Co-Counsel
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sweet Traditions LLC and Sweet Traditions of Illinois LLC ask
authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District
of Missouri to employ Ice Miller LLP as their special co-counsel.

Before the Debtors' filing for bankruptcy, Sweet Traditions of
Illinois was a plaintiff in a lawsuit captioned Sweet Traditions
of Illinois, LLC vs. Harris Realty Inc., et al., Case No. 2006
MR001610, instituted in the Circuit Court of DuPage County
Illinois.  A judgment was entered in the DuPage Action on
June 8, 2007, and ST of Illinois filed its appeal on that judgment
a month later.  The appeal is currently pending.

The Debtors had asked the Court for permission to employ and
retain Guilfoil, Petzall & Shoemake, LLC as their special counsel
in relation to the DuPage action and appeal.  Ice Miller acted as
the local co-counsel as well for that appeal, and, pursuant to a
retention agreement between the parties, will again represent the
Debtors in the DuPage appeal.

James B. Durkin, Esq., a member at Ice Miller, tells the Court
that the firm's professionals bill:

      Designation                             Hourly Rate
      -----------                             -----------
      Attorneys                               $195 - $445
      Legal Assistants                        $120 - $235

The firm will also require a retainer of $5,000.  As of the date
of bankruptcy, the Debtors were indebted to Ice Miller for $4,455,
for legal services services rendered.

Mr. Durkin assures the Court that the firm is a "disinterested
person" as that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code.

Mr. Durkin can be contacted at:

TERWIN MORTGAGE: Moody's Puts Seven Cert. Classes Under Review
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded 41 certificates and
placed on review for possible downgrade 7 certificates from seven
transactions issued by Terwin Mortgage Trust.  All transactions
are backed by second lien loans.  The certificates were downgraded
or placed on review for possible downgrade because the bonds'
credit enhancement levels, including excess spread and
subordination, were too low compared to the current projected loss
numbers at the previous rating levels.

Substantial pool losses of over the last few months have continued
to erode credit enhancement available to the mezzanine and senior
certificates. Despite the large amount of write-offs due to
losses, delinquency pipelines have remained high as borrowers
continue to default.  The actions reflect Moody's expectation that
the significant delinquency pipelines will have a further negative
impact on the credit support for the senior and mezzanine
certificates.

TIAA CMBS: Fitch Affirms Low-B Ratings on Three Cert. Classes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings upgrades TIAA CMBS I Trust's commercial mortgage
pass-through certificates, series 2001-C1, as:

  -- $33 million class H to 'AA+' from 'AA"';
  -- $14.7 million class J to 'A+' from 'A';
  -- $11 million class K to 'BBB+' from 'BBB' .

In addition, Fitch affirms these classes:

  -- $30.3 million class A-2 at 'AAA';
  -- $60.7 million class A-3 at 'AAA';
  -- $400 million class A-4 at 'AAA';
  -- Interest only class X at 'AAA';
  -- $58.6 million class B at 'AAA';
  -- $51.3 million class C at 'AAA';
  -- $22 million class D at 'AAA';
  -- $14.7 million class E at 'AAA';
  -- $18.3 million class F at 'AAA'.
  -- $14.7 million class G at 'AAA';
  -- $14.7 million class L at 'BB';
  -- $7.3 million class M at 'B+';
  -- $7.3 million class N at 'B'.

Fitch does not rate the $17.5 million class O.  Classes A-1 and A-
5 have been paid in full.

The upgrades reflect increased credit enhancement levels due to
additional defeasance of two loans (4.8%), loan payoffs and
scheduled amortization since Fitch's last rating action.  As of
the November 2007 distribution date, the pool's aggregate
certificate balance has decreased 46.9%, to $777.4 million from
$1.465 billion at issuance.  Of the original 252 loans, 151 remain
outstanding in the pool.  To date, 34 loans (38.8%) have defeased.
The Weighted Average Coupon of the remaining loans is 7.23%.
Twelve non-defeased loans in the pool (10.9%) are scheduled to
mature in 2008.

Currently there is one loan in special servicing (0.5%), secured
by a 151,096 square feet shopping center in Louisville, Kentucky,
with Walmart as the major tenant.  The loan was transferred to the
special sevicer after the borrower razed parts of the collateral
property without consent of the lender.  The borrower is in the
process of negotiating with Walmart for the purchase of the
property.  Fitch does not expect losses on this loan.

The pool's property type concentrations include retail (24.4%),
multifamily (13.2%), industrial (13%), office (6.3%) and
healthcare (3.6%).  Geographic concentrations include California
(13.1%), New York (7%), New Jersey (5.7%), and Massachusetts
(4.6%).

involuntary chapter 11 case they filed against Transland
Financial Services Inc. to allow an out-of-court settlement,
Bill Rochelle of Bloomberg News reports.

The settlement, Bloomberg says, calls for liquidating the
loans in which the banks hold security interests along with
the Debtor's other assets.

In a report published in the Troubled Company Reporter on
Oct. 17, 2007, Bloomberg said Robert E. Lynch, the examiner
appointed in Transland's bankruptcy case, issued a report
stating that the Debtor misused $27.4 million of funds.

According to Bloomberg, the examiner's report explained
how the Debtor put money in its operating account that
should have gone to the bank lenders when borrowers made
payments on loans.

Additionally, Bloomberg said, the examiner found that the
Debtor had cash flow problems since 2004.

Headquartered in Maitland, Florida, Transland Financial Services,
Inc. -- See http://www.transland.com/-- is a full service
mortgage lender.  On Aug. 23, 2007, three creditors, TierOne
Bank, Federal Trust Bank, and MidCountry Bank, filed an
involuntary chapter 11 petition against the company (Bankr. M.D.
Fla. Case No. 07-03834).  The creditors say they are collectively
owed in excess of $22 million by Transland.  Lynn James Hinson,

UNISYS CORP: Fitch Rates Proposed $250MM Debt Offering at BB-
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB-' rating to Unisys Corp. proposed
$250 million senior unsecured debt offering due 2016.  Proceeds
from the offering are expected to be used to repay the $200
million of 7.875% senior notes due April 2008 and for general
corporate purposes.

Fitch currently rates Unisys as:

  -- Issuer Default Rating at 'BB-';
  -- Secured credit facility at 'BB+';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB-'.

The Rating Outlook remains Negative, although liquidity will be
enhanced by a successful offering of the aforementioned notes
since it improves the company's maturity schedule and enables
Unisys to avoid the termination of its $275 million secured credit
facility without requesting a bank waiver.

Rating stabilization could occur if Unisys':
  -- Operating profit margins continue to expand, particularly
     for the Services segment (3.7% excluding retirement-
     related expense for the year ended Sept. 30, 2007), which
     accounts for 86% of total revenue;
  -- Multi-year restructuring and repositioning efforts are
     successfully executed, leading to sustainable free cash
     flow generation;
  -- Services business contributes the vast majority of total
     Segment operating profit, including pension expense, due
     to profit margin expansion, given the continued secular
     decline of high margin ClearPath mainframes.

Fitch may downgrade the rating if Unisys':
  -- Announces further material restructuring actions that
     require significant cash restructuring payments similar in
     scope to the current restructuring program.  Fitch
     believes additional relatively minor restructuring charges
     are possible for facility consolidations and/or minor
     headcount reductions that will be funded with operating
     cash flow; or
  -- Financial performance, especially free cash flow, fails to
     improve as expected or deteriorates.

The ratings and Negative Rating Outlook continue to reflect:
  -- Weak revenue performance primarily due to restructuring-
     related disruptions to the consulting and systems
     integration business and continued declines in ClearPath
     revenue and associated maintenance revenue;
  -- Difficulties expanding operating profit margins as the
     company withdrew its target of 8%-10% for 2008, and
     revenue growth in a very competitive information
     technology services marketplace;
  -- Improving, but weak earnings and continued negative free
     cash flow;
  -- Uncertain macro-economic outlook could reduce
     discretionary IT spending for consulting and systems
     integration engagements, which accounts for 31% of Unisys'
     Services revenue and 27% of total revenue;
  -- Significant ongoing restructuring; and
  -- Pressured sales for high-margin ClearPath mainframes due
     to server mix shift to lower margin, industry-standard
     servers;

The ratings continue to be supported by Unisys':
  -- Gradually improving credit protection measures driven by
     operating profit margin expansion;
  -- Long-term services contracts with recurring revenue base;
  -- Established expertise in targeted vertical end-markets;
     and
  -- Geographic and industry diversity of revenue base.

Fitch believes Unisys has adequate liquidity to satisfy operating
requirements and remaining cash severance obligations.  As of
Sept. 30, 2007, total liquidity was approximately $880 million,
consisting of $449 million of cash and approximately $231 million
of availability under its $275 million credit facility, net of
$44 million of outstanding letters of credit.  Additional
liquidity is provided by a $300 million accounts receivable
securitization facility with remaining availability of
$200 million as of Sept. 30, 2007, assuming the availability of
sufficient eligible receivables.  The A/R securitization program
is renewable annually at the purchasers' option until November
2008 and is terminable by the purchasers if Unisys' debt rating
declines below 'B'.  In November 2007, the program's annual
renewal date was extended to Dec. 28, 2007 and the company is
currently in discussions with the purchasers to re0new the
receivables facility.

Fitch remains concerned with Unisys' lack of free cash flow, which
has been negative since 2004 on a rolling trailing 12-month basis.
Although free cash flow remains negative, Fitch estimates the
amount of negative free cash flow has moderated to negative $29
million in the latest 12 months ended Sept. 30, 2007 from negative
$165 million in the year-ago period, excluding cash restructuring
payments, a tax refund, royalties from Nihon Unisys Limited, and
declining usage of the company's accounts receivable
securitization.  Lastly, Fitch expects free cash flow to improve
sequentially in the seasonally strong fourth quarter and in 2008
due primarily to operating margin expansion and a significant
decline in cash restructuring payments.

Pro-forma for the aforementioned proposed debt offering, total
debt is approximately $1.1 billion, consisting primarily of:
$250 million of senior unsecured notes due 2016; $400 million of
senior unsecured notes due October 2012; $300 million due March
2010; $150 million due October 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2007, Unisys' leverage decreased to approximately
2.1 times from 4.5x in 2006 and 7.1x in 2005.  Interest coverage
increased to 6.9x for the LTM ended Sept. 30, 2007 from 4.6x in
2006 and 2.7x in 2005.  However, interest coverage will initially
decline following the proposed debt offering due to a $50 million
net increase in debt and a higher interest rate relative to the
7.875% notes that will be repaid with the proceeds of the
offering.


UNISYS CORP: Moody's Rates $250MM Sr. Unsecured Notes at B2
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B2 rating to Unisys' current
offering of $250 million senior unsecured notes.  The rating for
these new notes as well as the ratings for company's corporate
family rating and outstanding notes are on review for possible
downgrade.  The review, initiated on Aug. 20, 2007, was prompted
by the company's slower than anticipated improvement in
profitability and its weak liquidity.  The review for possible
downgrade will continue to focus on Unisys' prospects for
maintaining sufficient available liquidity while meeting near-term
refinancing needs, including the refinancing of its $200 million 7
7/8% senior notes due April 2008 with the proceeds of the current
offering.  Upon the completion of the current offering and
application of the proceeds to redeem, at par, its $200 million 7
7/8% senior notes due April 2008 as planned, Moody's will likely
confirm the company's ratings and assign a negative rating
outlook.

The B2 senior unsecured rating for the $250 million notes is
supported by the company's geographic business diversity, which
mitigates its exposure to a business downturn within the U.S.
financial institutions sector.  The rating is also supported by
the company's declining, but sizable, cash balances and improving
overall liquidity.  The rating is constrained by the company's
modestly sized offshore services workforce and computing hardware
franchise relative to much larger competitors with greater
financial resources, its high financial leverage as measured by
low free cash flow to debt, and a trend of increasing offshore
competition within the commercial I/T services sector, which
exposes Unisys to further cash restructuring costs.

Rating assigned and placed under review for possible downgrade:
  -- $250 million proposed senior unsecured notes rated - B2
  -- Ratings on review for possible downgrade are:
  -- $200 million 7.875% senior unsecured notes due 2008 - B2
  -- $300 million 6.875% senior unsecured notes due 2010 - B2
  -- $400 million 8% senior unsecured notes due 2012 - B2
  -- $150 million 8.5% senior unsecured notes due 2015 - B2
  -- Corporate Family Rating - B2
  -- Probability Default Rating - B2

Headquartered in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, Unisys Corporation
provides I/T services and technology hardware to commercial and
governmental clients worldwide.

WORKFLOW MANAGEMENT: Moody's Places Ratings Under Review
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed its ratings for Workflow
Management, Inc. under review for possible downgrade. Details of
the rating action are:

Ratings placed under review for possible downgrade:
  -- Senior secured first lien revolving credit facility, due
     2010
  -- Senior secured first lien term loan facility, due 2011
  -- Senior secured second lien term loan facility, due 2011
  -- Corporate Family rating
  -- Probability of Default rating

The review for possible downgrade reflects the company's
underperformance relative to expectations and Moody's heightened
concerns regarding Workflow's squeezed liquidity profile and the
likelihood that it will fail to meet the materially stepped-down
financial maintenance covenants under its senior secured credit
agreement, coupled with the uncertainty related to management's
ability to waive and/or amend the terms of this facility given
tight credit market conditions and the ensuing elevated risk of
default in the absence thereof.

The review will assess the probability that lenders will grant
Workflow covenant relief under its total leverage covenant prior
to the scheduled tightening of this test at the end of March 2008.
In addition, the review will consider whether Workflow will
succeed in revitalizing its weakened top line, replacing sizeable
contract losses, reversing year-to-date free cash flow losses and
managing its debt service requirements in the face of increased
requisite term loan amortization payments in 2008.

Headquartered in New York, NY, Workflow Management, Inc. sources
and distributes a full range of business print and envelope
related documents and services.  For the LTM period ended
September 30, 2007, the company reported sales of approximately
$938 million.


* Debtwire and Guiliani See Credit Decline Will Continue to 2008
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Distressed Debt Creditor Insight survey predicts that the
current market "correction" will lead to a longer-term market
decline.  More than 85% of respondents expressed concern for the
ability of borrowers to refinance maturing LBO debt, and two-
thirds believe that US GDP growth will slow next year.  More than
90% surveyed expect mortgage default-related fund liquidations to
intensify, and many participants make it clear that the CLO market
is withering on the vine.

"The participants in this survey are industry leaders focused on a
broad range of leveraged finance, high yield and distressed debt
situations," said Matt Wirz, the Editor-in-Chief of Debtwire.  "It
is clear that the industry believes that the current market
'correction' is fast turning into a longer-term negative trend."

"One investor's leveraged finance problem is another investor's
leveraged finance opportunity," said Evan Flaschen, Chair of the
Financial Restructuring Group of law firm Bracewell & Giuliani
LLP, adding that "The Survey respondents are in the markets every
day evaluating today's finance and investment opportunities and
analyzing the potential distressed debt opportunities of tomorrow.

For them, the over-leveraged, wildly optimistic financings of the
mid-2000s are turning into a 2008 bull market for distressed debt
investing opportunities."

* Fitch Says 2008 Wireless Industry Will Be Similar to 2007
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings expects the 2008 operating environment for the North
American wireless industry will be similar to that of 2007, with
competitive market conditions on higher-priced, feature-rich 3G
handsets.  This will likely result in higher subsidy costs for
operators.

Fitch views core wireless services as fairly recession-resistant,
given the subscription-oriented nature and the necessity for
wireless services, particularly as more consumers have cut the
cord.  If broader economic trends continue to weaken as expected
in 2008, materially affecting the economy, consumers could become
more price sensitive, which would further dampen postpaid
subscriber growth, slow the uptake for additional data services
and pressure ARPU.

Fitch currently expects aggregate gross additions in 2008 will be
comparable to 2007 levels, within a range of 67 million to 68
million for the top-six wireless operators.  However, the mix of
prepaid subscribers will continue to increase likely to at least
35% of gross additions.  The growing presence of prepaid
subscribers will put modest upward pressure on the churn rate for
the industry although postpaid rates should continue to fall.  As
a result, Fitch believes that wireless revenue and EBITDA growth
will be high single digits in 2008 compared to low double-digits
in 2007.

During Q3 2007, total ARPU increased slightly to $52.70, marking
the third quarter in a row with a positive year-over-year
comparison.  While voice ARPU declined in excess of 4%, to $44.40,
data ARPU increased by over 40%, to $8.30.  With solid growth in
subscribers, total data revenue for the third quarter was $6
billion, a 54% increase from a year ago, driven mainly by a
substantial increase in messaging services.  Strong data revenue
growth remains paramount to the stability of ARPU for the wireless
industry.


* Fitch Says Auto Suppliers Will Face The Same Stresses in 2008
---------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. auto suppliers will face the same set of stresses in 2008
that have caused severe financial and operational deterioration
over the past several years, including the bankruptcies of a
number of Tier 1 suppliers, declining volumes from the Detroit
Three, continuing pricedowns, high commodity prices, excess cost-
disadvantaged U.S. capacity and resulting restructuring actions,
and higher interest costs associated with higher debt levels.
Adding to these woes is the expectation of slower economic growth
in the U.S. and the resulting impact on industry sales volumes.
Fitch projects that light vehicle sales in the U.S. will fall
approximately 3% in 2008, to 15.6 million units, with the Detroit
Three bearing the brunt of industry sales declines.

The recent UAW contract with the Detroit Three could also
exacerbate the impact of an economic downturn on suppliers by
giving manufacturers greater flexibility to reduce production when
faced with declining demand.  This could result in greater
cyclicality than has been seen recently, where inflexible cost
structures resulted in higher incentives to prop up demand. Event
risk has been reduced, given the new UAW contract, but more severe
industry cycles could rapidly undo some of the progress toward
stabilization within the sector that was made in 2007.

Industry Structure:

Despite industry-wide pressures, operating and financial
performance among the suppliers diverged in 2007.  Companies with
strong balance sheets, a diversified operating profile, or
technology-driven products (Johnson Controls, Borg Warner)
continue to perform well.  A number of companies that suffered
operating losses and impaired balance sheets over the past several
years have shown clear benefits from restructuring activities
(American Axle, Lear), with stabilized cash flows and the
opportunity to modestly improve balance sheets in 2008.  Other
portions of the industry (Visteon, ArvinMeritor) have yet to
reverse negative cash flows and risk further balance sheet erosion
and more severe restructuring actions.

On an even lower rung, the industry is likely to see the emergence
from bankruptcy of a material portion of the U.S. supply base
(Delphi, Dana, Dura, Federal Mogul) assuming that operating and
financial profiles are palatable to debt investors under current
capital market conditions.  New private equity capital is playing
a major role in recapitalizing several of these companies,
although little new capital is being committed to the industry
without the benefits of restructuring through the bankruptcy
process.  In addition to companies emerging from bankruptcy,
private equity will maintain an active role in the restructuring
of the domestic industry (Tower/Cerberus, Lear/Icahn,
Visteon/Pardus).

The industry continues to suffer from overcapacity and an
uncompetitive cost structure in the U.S., resulting in a further
migration of its manufacturing footprint to low- cost locations in
Asia and Eastern Europe.  It is noteworthy that despite a large
number of assets on the market by highly motivated sellers, major
transactions from strategic buyers have been relatively few.  The
Detroit Three and their former captive suppliers, Delphi and
Visteon, still have a number of properties in the market that will
either be shut down, or sold at highly distressed prices.  Even
European suppliers with strong currency advantages and a stated
desire to grow within the U.S. through acquisition have been
relatively inactive.

Expanding suppliers, transplant and domestic, have chosen to
pursue supply contracts directly from OEMs rather than purchasing
assets from other suppliers that may have uncompetitive wage and
benefit structures, or excess capacity. The wholesale closure of
production facilities by companies that have the added flexibility
provided by the bankruptcy process is a clear indication of the
cost gap that remains to be addressed in the industry.  Weakness
in the U.S. supply base has led to an acceleration of the
expansion of European and Asian suppliers, which will put further
stress on competing U.S.-based suppliers.  This expansion is often
at the request of the OEMs which remain concerned with granting
long-term contracts for new platforms to financially vulnerable
suppliers.

Operating Performance:

First and foremost, margin performance will continue to be driven
by proprietary technologies and diversification - global
geographic diversity, product diversity, and diversity of end
customers among global vehicle manufacturers.  In 2008, margin
expansion will again be the challenge for the suppliers, as well
as the yardstick for measuring progress on restructuring programs.
Restructuring will continue to be an ongoing process for most of
the industry, and cost structures will continue to evolve.  Given
this evolution, the uncertain profitability of recent contract
wins that are now entering production will have an impact on
margins.  Pricedowns remain the rule for major parts of the
industry, which the suppliers are forced to offset by continued
productivity improvements.  However, an increasing portion of the
supply base, based on technology, quality or proprietary
processes, has been able to better hold pricing - allowing
restructuring efforts to show up in improved margin performance.
Commodity prices, although still high, have come off recent peaks,
and are expected to be less of a headwind going forward,
potentially providing some margin relief. The consolidation of the
steel industry, however, may limit the potential price declines
seen by other commodities in an economic downturn.

Risks to free cash flow include higher capital expenditures and
working capital requirements, both related, in part, to expansion
of contracts with non-U.S. manufacturers, as well as further
migration of manufacturing operations to low-cost locations.  As a
result of weak operating results and capital constraints, capital
expenditures have been declining over the past several years on an
absolute level and as a percentage of revenues.  Given the
required investments and start-up costs associated with new
product launches, and an accelerating pace of launches by OEMs,
increasing capital expenditures could extract a greater claim on
operating cash flows.  As suppliers have expanded international
sales and international manufacturing operations, suppliers have
also experienced increases in working capital requirements.  The
weakening of the U.S. dollar could also affect the competitiveness
of low cost countries.

Given further production declines in 2008, less visible second-
tier and third-tier suppliers will continue to experience a
significant degree of operating and financial stress.  With less
technology-driven value-added products, higher exposure to Detroit
Three unit volumes, and less access to external capital even under
the best of capital market conditions, these suppliers will be
further hit by weakening economic conditions and the potential
increase in cyclicality.  For first-tier suppliers, this situation
poses the risk of supply interruption, or of having to step in and
provide varying forms of financial support that could absorb
precious capital.

Despite severe damage to industry balance sheets over the last
several years, industry liquidity remains fairly healthy.  Non-
investment-grade suppliers capitalized on the very attractive
conditions prevailing in the leveraged loan market to boost
liquidity and extend maturities, typically with loan structures
and pricing that are certainly not available.  Debt maturities in
the sector are very limited, reducing refinancing risk.  Financing
risks in the sector remain focused on those companies attempting
to raise exit financing, where terms have clearly tightened.
Chrysler's inability to place its bank financing in the market and
Delphi's restructuring of its original reorganization financing
plan demonstrate clearly that the capital markets are wary of auto
and auto supplier prospects entering 2008.  With industry unit
volume declines, balance sheet improvement is likely to be
limited, and refinancing risk will become more of a factor post-
2008.


* Fitch Says Slow Economic Growth Could Pressure U.S. Auto Sales
----------------------------------------------------------------
Slowing U.S. economic growth will place pressure on U.S. auto
sales in 2008, with revenue declines offsetting much of the
benefits from recent fixed-cost improvements achieved at GM, Ford
and Chrysler.  Fitch Ratings expects that U.S. light vehicle sales
will fall approximately 3% in 2008 to 15.6 million units, from an
expected level of 16.1 million vehicles in 2007.  This would
represent the lowest annual sales total since 1998.  Increasing
interest costs from higher net leverage will also represent a more
significant claim on operating cash flows over the intermediate
term.

The Detroit Three will bear the brunt of the industry sales
declines due to brand weakness, planned production cutbacks,
higher exposure to the pickup market, and the migration of
consumers to smaller, lower-priced vehicles in which the Detroit
Three are less competitive.  The latter two factors, along with
standard industry pricing pressure, indicate that revenues will
likely decline at a faster rate than unit volume declines, further
challenging the ability to achieve cost reductions that will
outpace revenue declines.  As a result, negative cash flows,
including restructuring costs, are likely to persist.

Fitch expects that U.S. GDP growth will slow to approximately 1.7%
in 2008, with retail light vehicle sales feeling the effects of
weaker consumer discretionary spending. Fleet sales are also
expected to be hit by tighter spending, including the potential
for moderate reductions by daily rental purchasers in line with
weaker business travel.  The depressed housing market will lead to
a further slide in pickup truck sales from already reduced 2007
levels.  Industry unit sales declines in 2008 could also be
exacerbated by the greater operating flexibility of the Detroit
Three following the new four-year UAW contract.  Fixed-cost
reductions and other terms of the contract provide the Detroit
Three with the flexibility to better manage down costs and
production in line with reduced market demand.  Together with a
keener focus by the Detroit Three on managing inventories and
incentives, these factors could lead to a steeper decline in
industry unit sales and greater cyclical volatility than has been
seen in recent cycles when high incentives propped up demand and
production.  This flexibility is a favorable development for the
Detroit Three, but not for their suppliers.

Product Pipeline

The Detroit Three still face an extended transition to align their
product lineups with market demand trends.  Pickup trucks will
remain a core of volume and profitability despite current market
conditions that are viewed as cyclical rather than structural.
Large SUVs also remain a profitable market segment, largely
dominated by GM, where volumes have stabilized despite high gas
prices.  Although late to the game, GM and Ford have enjoyed clear
success in the growing crossover category, and the new Dodge
Journey will compete in that segment in early 2008.  The Detroit
Three remain less competitive in smaller car segments where
consumer demand is trending.  New vehicles to be launched by the
Detroit Three in 2008 will be competitive, but not sufficient to
halt a further slide in market share.

In the key pickup truck segment, each of the Detroit Three has
demonstrated the capacity to defend their market position versus
transplant manufacturers, a position that is expected to be
reinforced with the 2008 F-Series and Dodge Ram updates.  Toyota's
reintroduced Tundra pickup has taken market share, but quality
concerns and incentives marked the rollout as a disappointment.
Any eventual upturn in the U.S. housing market will benefit the
Detroit Three in this segment.

GM's 2008 new product performance will focus on the recently re-
introduced Chevrolet Malibu and Cadillac CTS, and a number of
hybrid models.  In early 2008 GM will launch the Pontiac G8,
redesigned Pontiac Vibe, and Saturn Astra.  GM's hybrid
introductions include mild hybrid versions of the Saturn Aura and
Chevrolet Malibu, as well as two-mode hybrid versions of the
Saturn Vue, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Silverado, and GMC Yukon.
These new products are unlikely to offset the volume declines
occurring across a substantial number of models within the GM
portfolio, and 2008 revenue comparisons will suffer versus the
2007 rollout of higher-priced GMT-900 products.

Ford's most significant launches in 2008 include the Lincoln MKS,
which will become the brand's new flagship vehicle and the Ford
Flex.  Ford's 2008 sales volumes will be supported by a relatively
competitive smaller vehicle lineup - the recently refreshed Ford
Focus, Ford Fusion and Escape, Mercury Milan and Lincoln MKZ.
Crossover products, the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX, have been
selling strongly.  After the likely sale of Jaguar and Land Rover
in 2008, Volvo will be the only brand remaining of Ford's Premier
Automotive Group.

Chrysler unit volumes and revenues in 2008 will benefit from the
recently launched Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Caravan
minivans, the 2008 launch of the new Dodge Journey full-size
crossover, the reengineered and redesigned Dodge Ram pickup, and
the much-anticipated Challenger.  Two-mode hybrid versions of the
Dodge Durango and Chrysler Aspen will also be introduced in 2008.
In the minivan segment, the exit of Ford and GM and the attractive
new features on Chrysler's offerings position Chrysler to improve
on its market-leading share in the segment.  Chrysler's new owner,
Cerberus, along with recent additions to Chrysler's management
team, has made several rapid changes in Chrysler's vehicle lineup,
with more changes expected.  By the end of 2008, the Dodge Magnum,
Chrysler PT convertible, Chrysler Pacifica, and Chrysler Crossfire
will be discontinued.

The Detroit Three may also be regaining some recognition for
innovation: Ford's Sync Microsoft dashboard system, GM's dual-mode
Yukon and Tahoe hybrids (that equal the city gas mileage of a
four-cylinder Toyota Camry), the development of GM's Volt plug-in
concept, Chrysler's 'Swivel 'n Go' seating and table in its new
minivan, etc., are all representative of the types of technologies
the Detroit Three hope will draw U.S. consumers back.
Importantly, GM, and to an even greater extent Ford, have made
clear gains in their quality perception through a string of
successful product introductions, gains in various quality
surveys, and related media focus.  Coupled with the increasingly
frequent and publicized recalls across a number of Toyota
vehicles, the quality perception between the Detroit Three and the
transplants shows signs of narrowing.

Notable U.S. product introductions from the transplants include
the 2008 versions of the Toyota Sequoia, Matrix and Corolla, and
the 2008 Honda Accord.  Continuing capacity expansion for existing
transplant products will result in expanded market share at the
expense of the Detroit Three.  European manufacturers in the
luxury segment performed well in 2007, a performance that is
expected to continue in 2008 although the weaker dollar will have
a material effect on profitability on products exported from high-
cost European manufacturing capacity.

International operations at Ford and GM continue to be a bright
spot, although it is unlikely that significant cash flow from
these operations will be repatriated to service U.S. obligations
in the near term.  Chrysler continues to enjoy solid export
growth, aided by the weaker dollar, which could help absorb
marginal production capacity as U.S. sales weaken.

Brand Management:

Economic pressures in 2008 could force the Detroit Three to
address long-standing brand issues.  In particular, Mercury,
Lincoln, Buick, Pontiac and Saturn all face one or more issues of
scale, brand identity, and product overlap - Is the Buick brand
viable with effectively one competitive product and scale of less
than 200,000 annual units? Can marketing costs and brand
investments earn required returns on these brands? Are the U.S.
end-markets and auto brands sufficiently segmented to support four
derivatives of the same vehicle (Buick Enclave, Saturn Outlook,
Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia)? Do Mercury and Pontiac simply
cannibalize products from sister brands? Resolution of these
questions is not just a marketing issue - platform and product
investment, platform scale, dealer networks, and production
footprint are all inextricably linked.

Providing sufficient support and investment across brands in a
capital constrained environment is not something the Detroit Three
have done well.  In 2007 year-to-date, only three domestic brands,
Saturn, Lincoln, and GMC managed to sell more vehicles than the
prior year.  Resolving these questions will also be a lengthy and
costly process, and the task was made more difficult by the
investment and production commitments made by GM and Ford under
the latest UAW contract.  In a number of facilities, GM and Ford
will have to replace weak-selling products with rejuvenated
product introductions in order to avoid a repeat of the fixed-cost
and overcapacity issues that have plagued them over the past
years.

Wages and Benefits:

The terms of the new UAW contract put the Detroit Three on a
longer term path to competitive wage and benefit levels.  However,
the transition to second-tier wages and benefits for a material
portion of the workforce will take time to realize through
additional buyouts and attrition.  In 2008, the Detroit Three will
be challenged to outpace revenue pressures with further cost
reductions, although material 2007 hourly workforce reductions at
Ford and Chrysler have yet to be fully realized in operating
results.

Over the longer term, however, further turnover of the labor
force, resulting in a higher percentage of second-tier wage
earners, will yield meaningful savings.  Fitch estimates that from
the end of 2006-2008, the Detroit Three could reduce their hourly
U.S. workforce by more than 30%, with wage and benefit run-rate
savings of more than a third through 2009.  The fact that new
hires will be on a defined contribution pension plan, with no
retiree health care benefits, represents a significant long-term
savings and a more industry-competitive cost structure.  Industry
wage rates will continue to be under pressure as transplants also
look to move to prevailing local wage rates.

Although the agreements put the Detroit Three on a course to a
competitive wage and benefit structure with transplant
manufacturers, there remain significant cost disadvantages in
terms of flexible manufacturing and capital investment efficiency.
The extensive platform sharing, parts commonality, and supplier
competitiveness enjoyed by the transplants indicates that the
variable cost gap will be as challenging to close as the fixed
cost gap has proven to be. U.S. suppliers will continue to be
under stress in 2008.

VEBA:

The Detroit Three and the UAW have prudently structured the
funding of the VEBA trusts to preserve healthy liquidity at the
Detroit Three - a critical consideration given the uncertain
economic environment and significant cash requirements to fund
restructuring programs and ongoing working capital.  Transferring
retiree health care liabilities to the UAW, as well as the risk of
future medical cost inflation, represents a significant risk
transfer.  However, the offsetting costs are material.  The loss
of assumed earnings on existing VEBA assets, the loss of income
earned on cash and marketable securities that will be used to fund
the trust, and higher interest expense on debt issued to the trust
will diminish the near-term benefits realized from the agreement.
(Note: Until the VEBA trusts are removed from the consolidated
balance sheets of the Detroit Three, the full extent of the debt
load, loss of interest income, and interest expense will be
difficult to discern without clear disclosure.)

Debt Burden:

Although the health care liabilities associated with the UAW
workforce will be removed from the balance sheet, the benefit has
been muted by the growth in debt. Since the end of 2001, and
incorporating the new debt to be issued to the VEBA trusts, Ford's
debt will have grown by more than $21 billion and GM's by more
than $31 billion.  Ford and GM will have to service this debt with
dramatically lower earnings capacity - a result of share losses
and downsized production capacity, severely reduced or eliminated
dividends from their finance operations, and the loss of earnings
from divested assets.  In GM's case, liquidity drains from
significant operating losses, restructuring costs, and costs
associated with Delphi have been regularly replenished by the sale
of Allison Transmission, a 51% interest in GMAC, and various
shareholdings and joint ventures.

With fewer assets to tap at GM and Ford, cash drains from
operating losses, working capital reductions and further
restructuring will diminish still-healthy liquidity until
operating results turn cash flow positive.  Cash flow is expected
to remain negative for Ford and GM in 2008, although cost
improvements from the new UAW contract will begin to cushion
downside risks in 2009.  High net leverage and the related
interest expense will represent an increasing claim on cash flow
in 2008 and 2009.  It is important to note that due to recent
write-offs and recognition of plant closing costs, non-cash
savings on health care costs, strong pension asset performance,
and the pending VEBA accounting, reported profitability will
strengthen in excess of cash flow, and any return to profitability
may not be accompanied by a return to positive cash flow.

Politics:

Heading into the 2008 election year, the industry will see an
acceleration of regulatory and legislative activity across a
variety of issues.  Led by fuel efficiency and emission standards,
the auto industry will continue to face scrutiny and uncertainty
at the state, federal and judicial levels.  Entering 2007, a
number of these issues were largely long-term in nature, but the
timetable has now been accelerated - largely to the comparative
detriment of U.S. manufacturers who remain weighted to less fuel-
efficient vehicles.  In addition to fuel efficiency and emission
standards, issues include tax policy, trade policy, and
alternative fuel developments.  Political intervention poses the
risk to manufacturers of altering market demand or investment
decisions.  As powertrain technologies and strategies diverge, the
U.S. manufacturers have a clear long-term financial strength
disadvantage versus transplant manufacturers.

Early 2007 saw a lot of U.S. brand/product marketing focused on
ethanol-capable vehicles.  Currently there appears to be little
consensus that ethanol is a viable alternative fuel solution over
the longer term.  On the other hand, Fitch expects that the
compelling fuel efficiency and improved emission technologies of
diesel will lead to rapid regulatory and consumer acceptance,
leading to greatly enhanced diesel penetration starting in 2009-
10.  The growing acceptance of diesel is expected to be a major
industry development and competitive factor over the near term.

Summary:

Economic conditions will be the driving factor for the performance
of the Detroit Three in 2008.  The restructuring of the industry
remains a long-term process - the transition of workforce, the
rebalancing of product portfolios - and a return to competitive
margins remains a distant objective.  Productivity, quality and
supplier costs will be less visible, but critical priorities.  The
new UAW contract provides a path to competitive wage and benefit
levels, buying additional time for restructuring and reengineering
efforts to take hold, but top-line pressures and restructuring
costs will result in continued negative cash flow for Ford and GM.
Liquidity is healthy, but higher net leverage and interest expense
will become an increasing burden to the Detroit Three over the
intermediate term in the absence of material margin expansion.


* Moody's Says 2007 Holiday Retail Season Will Be Competitive
-------------------------------------------------------------
The 2007 holiday retail season is shaping up to be one of the most
competitive in recent years, with macroeconomic headwinds
affecting potentially every retailer, says Moody's Investors
Service.  In this environment, stronger retailers will be
increasing promotions to extract share from weaker ones and sales
will be volatile.

"Rising energy prices and the housing market turmoil -- led by
sub-prime fallout and relatively high interest rates on consumer
credit -- has created an increasingly volatile retail environment,
which could get worse as the typical Holiday competition
increases," says Moody's Vice President Charles O'Shea, author of
the report.

Moody's expects home electronics again to be the most important
category this holiday and for flat panel televisions to be the
most competitive segment.

Moody's also expects an aggressively promotional pricing
environment for flat panels, especially from the discounters,
warehouse clubs, and Sears as they attempt to stimulate store
traffic.  "With gas prices almost $1.00 per gallon higher than
Holiday 2006, it will be even more critical for shoppers to be
efficient in their shopping outings this year," says O'Shea.

The discounters are expected set an even faster pace this Holiday
season as their value proposition becomes even more compelling due
to the challenging macroeconomic environment. "Wal-Mart has
continued to ratchet up the pressure with heavily-promotional
consumer electronics, particularly flat-panel televisions, with
much greater selection up and down the price scale than even last
year, while Target has deepened its flat-panel offerings, making
it a compelling alternative, especially at the under-$1000 price
point," says O'Shea.

Costco will continue to utilize its broad array of food offerings
to drive store traffic, with its larger sized grocery items
perfect for Holiday entertaining.  Moody's also expects Costco to
be at the top of the performance list for this Holiday season.

In all, Moody's expects the lower to middle end retailers that
offer flat panel televisions to have a leg up on their soft goods
and specialty competitors.

Retailers' focus on the critical Holiday season is also magnified
because many are looking to salvage what has been so far at best a
disappointing year.

The full title of this Moody's Special Comment is "It's A Flat
Panel World -- Big Box Retail Holiday 2007."


* Moody's Publishes a Summary of Ratings on Alt-A RMBS
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has published a new report providing a
summary of rating actions taken to date on 2005 and 2006 Moody's-
rated Alt-A residential mortgage-backed securities.

On Nov. 27, 2007, Moody's completed a review of all outstanding
non-Option ARM Alt-A RMBS rated in Q4 2005 and in 2006.  As a
result of the review, a total of 222 securities issued in 2005 and
1,247 securities issued in 2006 were downgraded and/or placed
under review for possible downgrade.  The affected tranches issued
in 2005 have an original balance of $1.5 billion, representing
0.4% of the original dollar volume of Alt-A RMBS rated by Moody's
in 2005.  The original balance on affected tranches issued in 2006
totals $10.2 billion, or 2.5% of Moody's-rated Alt-A RMBS from
that year.

Among 2005 vintage securities, 196 were downgraded, with a
combined rated original balance of $1.1 billion.  Five of those
securities were also placed on review for further possible
downgrade, while an additional 26 securities ($367 million) were
also placed on review for possible downgrade.  Among 2006 vintage
securities, 908 (with an original balance of $4.3 billion) were
downgraded as a result of the review. Twenty-four of those
securities were also placed under review for further possible
downgrade, while an additional 339 securities ($5.9 billion) were
also placed on review for possible downgrade.

The review was prompted by deteriorating mortgage performance in
pools backing transactions issued during this period, resulting
from aggressive underwriting combined with a tightened lending
market and prolonged home price weakness that is expected to
continue.

The methodology Moody's used to update its loss estimates for the
reviewed transactions was to separately project ultimate losses
for the delinquent and non-delinquent portions of the loan pools.

For the delinquent portions of the pools, Moody's applied roll
rates of 25%, 65%, 90%, and 100% to 60-day delinquencies, 90+-day
delinquencies, foreclosures, and REO, respectively, and applied
severities of 25% to 30%, to forecast expected pipeline losses.
For pools with less than 18 months of seasoning that had growing
delinquency pipelines, Moody's projected delinquencies,
foreclosures, and REO out to 18 months and then applied the roll-
rate analysis described above.

For the non-delinquent portion of the pools, estimated losses were
driven by Moody's new Alt-A rating methodology that was adopted in
August.  Estimated losses were also informed by overall issuance
shelf performance.

The Alt-A universe includes a fairly broad spectrum of collateral
quality and performance.  As such, certain issuance shelves -- and
even certain pool types within shelves -- tend to perform closer
to the prime end of the credit spectrum, while others may perform
closer to the subprime sector with very sizeable early severe
delinquencies.

As a result, Moody's lifetime loss estimates on the pools included
in the review increased by as much as 270% over initial
expectations, with an average increase of 110%.  Moody's intends
to publish shortly its revised expected loss estimates on a
transaction by transaction basis.

The rating actions were based on the resulting updated pool loss
expectations when compared to credit enhancement in the deals in
the form of available subordination, overcollateralization and
excess spread.

Updates to the report will be published as needed pending future
rating actions.  Moody's will complete reviews of Option ARM Alt-A
RMBS issued over the same period as well as 2007 vintage Alt-A
transactions within the next several weeks.


* Moody's Says Sudden Departure of CEO Reveals Weakness in Firm
---------------------------------------------------------------
The sudden departure of a CEO can reveal weaknesses in a firm's
corporate governance, says Moody's Investors Service in a new
report.  Moody's looks to the effectiveness of leadership
transition and the structure of pay for the new CEO as key
indicators of governance quality, as well as the quality of board
engagement, rather than the size of the actual payout.

"Other than rare cases when boards use significant discretion, we
don't pay much attention to the actual severance payout when
evaluating the quality of corporate governance in rated
companies," says Moody's Analyst Drew Hambly.  "Instead, we focus
on signs of inadequate succession planning, mishandling the CEO
search, or a lack of willingness by the board to restructure pay
when the departing CEO's pay had been high relative to peers."

Much has been made of the total size of payouts made to departing
CEOs at various firms.  These payouts do not generally point to
current weaknesses in corporate governance that could compromise
credit quality, says Moody's.

"The size of the payout to the outgoing CEO generally doesn't tell
us much about the board or present governance quality," says
Hambly.  "High payouts, however, can highlight past pay-setting
problems, such highly favorable employment contracts and above-
peer compensation."

At the point of firing CEOs, boards typically have limited
discretion over the size of payouts to departing CEOs, given that
the bulk of payments tend to be severance, pension, or deferred
compensation payments that are obligatory.  Over three-fifths
(62%) of Fortune 100 CEOs have severance coverage, which typically
provides for a cash severance payout, preferential vesting of
equity, and health and benefits.

"Although the sheer size of a payout may seem outsized given that
the reason for departure is often corporate under-performance,
large-company boards generally have little discretion in the
severance, pension, and benefits that they must pay," says Hambly.

Even in cases where a CEO is terminated for underperformance, this
does not typically qualify as a "for cause" termination that would
limit severance benefits.  Most employment contracts do not
include corporate underperformance as grounds for a "for cause"
dismissal.

Called "Analyzing Unexpected CEO Departures and Severance Payouts
for Signs of Weak Governance," this Moody's Special Comment
includes an analysis of the average value of "payouts" to large-
company CEOs and outlines typical contract terms. According to
Moody's estimates, on average, CEOs of Fortune 250 companies who
have severance coverage would receive $27.4 million upon
departure, or $37.4 million if a deferred compensation plan is in
place.

Since its creation in 2003, Moody's Corporate Governance
Specialist Group has worked alongside Moody's credit analysts to
incorporate governance more systematically into the credit rating
process.  The group has published individual corporate governance
assessments, which comment on the quality of governance and the
link to credit quality, at over 500 large North American
companies.  The group publishes research comments on those
governance issues Moody's believes have an impact on rated
issuers' credit quality.


* Moody's Says Report on Filing Under Section 404 Shows Problems
----------------------------------------------------------------
The internal control reports of foreign private issuers filing for
the first time under Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act showed
the presence of some control problems, a few serious, but did not
lead to any rating actions, says Moody's Investors Service.  Of
the 158 foreign private issuers rated by Moody's and required to
report under SOX 404 for the first time this year, seven disclosed
material weaknesses, or approximately 4%.

Three of the seven reported a weakness that Moody's considers
serious enough to warrant potential rating action.  Moody's took
no rating actions directly from the control deficiencies because
they were previously known about and reflected in ratings or were
currently being evaluated.

"The percentage of Moody's rated foreign private issuers reporting
control problems is similar to our experience with US public
companies," said Moody's Alan Rosenberg, author of the report.

During their first year of reporting approximately 6% of US
Moody's-rated issuers reported problems.

Moody's says only 275 of the approximately 3,500 non-US companies
that it rates are foreign private issuers and subject to
Securities Exchange Act reporting requirements.  Only about half
of these are currently required to file internal control reports.

With the implementation Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404, governments
and security regulators around the world have been paying more
attention to the issue of internal control reporting, says
Moody's.  While Moody's perceives benefits from reporting on
internal controls, it does not differentiate the credit quality of
companies solely on the basis of different requirements for
management or auditor reporting on controls, as the rating agency
has no objective or consistent means of doing so.

The full title of this report is "The First Year of Section 404
Reporting on Internal Control by Foreign Private Issuers."


* Moody's Monitors the Liquidity of Florida's Universities
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service is monitoring the liquidity of Florida's
local governments and public universities in light of the State
Board of Administration's suspension of withdrawals from the Local
Government Investment Pool following the withdrawal by
participants of approximately $10 billion of the approximately $25
billion pool.

"Moody's is collecting information on liquidity measures being
taken by pool participants," said Moody's Senior Vice President
John Incorvaia, author of a special report published by the rating
agency yesterday.  "We will evaluate our ratings for entities
significantly affected by the freeze on withdrawals and any
subsequent actions by the SBA."

He said most rated entities contacted by Moody's that have been
affected by the suspension have indicated that their cash flow
positions are currently being supported by property tax receipts
and that income from the LGIP is not critical to meet immediate
liquidity requirements.  However, he said, Moody's recognizes that
there are municipalities that have had to rely on external
liquidity to meet payroll, debt service and other obligations.

The SBA was scheduled to meet Dec. 4, to consider proposals that
would allow localities and public universities in Florida to
request specific withdrawals based on criteria to be defined by
the SBA.

In its report, "Moody's is Monitoring Liquidity of Florida Local
Governments in Light of SBA Suspension of LGIP Withdrawals," the
rating agency said it is collecting information on state-sponsored
investment pools nationwide and is augmenting its traditional
review of rated credits with respect to cash investments in
general.

public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed chapter 11
cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and liabilities
delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list includes links
to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar petitions in
Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.
