SunTrust Banks Inc.: Standard & Poor's Corp. revised its ratings outlook on SunTrust to "positive" from "stable." Standard & Poor's also affirmed its ratings on SunTrust's senior debt at A-Plus; senior/subordinated debt, filed under a Rule 415 shelf registration, at preliminary A-Plus/A, and commercial paper at A-1.

Standard & Poor's said the outlook revision reflects SunTrust's proven ability to maintain consistently superior financial performance through the course of the business cycle.

By way of contrast, the operating results of many of its peers undulated with the recent swings in nonperforming assets.
