NEW YORK (Standard & Poor's) Oct. 6, 2011--Standard & Poor's Ratings Services today raised its rating on PreferredPLUS Trust Series LMG-2?s $31 million certificates to 'BB' from 'BB-' and removed it from CreditWatch, where we placed it with positive implications on July 11, 2011.

We may take subsequent rating actions on the certificates due to changes in our rating on the underlying security. RELATED...
