From Reuters: Fitch may cut CDO ratings linked to subprime loans

Fitch Ratings' derivatives unit on Friday said it may cut its ratings on some securities in debt products known as collateralized debt obligations because of exposure to deteriorating subprime loans.

The affected collateralized debt obligations, or CDOs, are: Trainer Wortham First Republic CBO III, ACA ABS 2003-1, ACA ABS 2003-2, and Ipswich Street CDO.
Securities from "three 2003 diversified (structured finance) CDOs and one high grade CDO issued last year may be downgraded," Fitch said in a statement.
