Class M-7 of Bear Stearns Asset-Backed Securities series 2005-2 has been placed on Rating Watch Negative by Fitch Ratings.In addition, Fitch affirmed the ratings on seven other classes in the deal. The Rating Watch placement reflects a deterioration in the relationship between excess spread and monthly losses, Fitch said. "Due to faster-than-expected prepayments, the dollar amount of excess spread has been less than expected and has not been sufficient to build the overcollateralization to its target amount," the rating agency said.
