I don't have a Moody's subscription; the reports are freebies via my Etrade and Scottrade accounts. I have no idea how long they've been offered by the brokerages; possibly it's new, possibly they've offered them for awhile. The warning for a possible downgrade of banks was made in one of the Moody's company reports I read. I doubt I would get any of their industry-wide reports.

Now of course, like you and Charlie said, any downward pressure on the bonds I'm looking at may have already occurred because of the warning given. I still can't help but think that the day the bonds I'm looking at go from being rated A to BBB, there will be some kind of drop.
