CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- NationsBank Corp. plans to change the way it values the bulk of its $32 billion bond portfolio at yearend, which could increase its equity by $200 million to $300 million.

The Charlotte, N.C., bank will probably consider about $20 billion of the bond portfolio as tradeable securities, rather than as investments that will be held until maturity, said James H. Hance Jr., chief financial officer.
