Class BV of IndyMac ABS Inc. series SPMD 2000-B group 2 has been downgraded from BBB to BB and removed from Rating Watch Negative by Fitch Ratings.In addition, the ratings on three other classes in the same home equity deal were affirmed. Fitch attributed the downgrade to "poor collateral performance and the deterioration of asset quality beyond original expectations." The deal originally contained 6.7% of manufactured housing collateral, but the percentage had increased to 19.1% as of July, the rating agency said. "To date, MH loans have exhibited very high historical loss severities, causing Fitch to have concerns regarding the adequacy of enhancement in this deal, especially with regard to class BV," Fitch said.
