TEXT-S&P raises PreferredPLUS Trust Series BLC-2 rating to 'BB'

Nov 27 - Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services today raised its rating on PreferredPLUS Trust Series BLC-2’s $33.530 million 8.00% certificates to ‘BB’ from ‘BB-'.

Our rating on the certificates is dependent on our rating on the underlying security; Belo Corp.’s $250 million 7.25% senior debentures due Sept. 15, 2027.

Today’s rating action follows the Nov. 19, 2012, raising of our rating on the underlying security to ‘BB’ from ‘BB-'. We may take subsequent rating actions on the certificates due to changes in our rating on the underlying security.
