BEAR STEARNS SECURED INVESTORS TRUST 1993-4 $211,000,000 COLLATERALIZED MORTGAGE OBLIGATIONS SERIES 1993-4 RATED BY DUFF & PHELPS

 NEW YORK, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Duff & Phelps Credit Rating Co. has rated the following classes of Collateralized Mortgage Obligations, Series 1993-4 issued by Bear Stearns Secured Investors Trust 1993-4:
 Class Amount Rate D&P Rating
 F-1 $211,000,000 1-Month LIBOR +2 percent AAA (Triple A)
 Class F-1 is entitled to monthly payments on the collateral (described below) less fees of the trust. The payments are allocated first to meet a sinking fund schedule, second to pay interest on the class, and then to pay down principal on the class. In the event that any Class F-1 interest is accrued but not paid on the respective payment date, such interest, together with interest on such interest, is scheduled to be paid once the principal amount of the class has been paid in full. Holders of the Trust Certificates, which represent the residual interest in the trust, may also terminate the trust on or after the earlier of February 25, 2006 and the date upon which the principal balance of Class F-1 falls below $52,7500,000, in which case the Class F-1 bondholders must be paid their outstanding principal amount but not any accrued and unpaid interest.
 The rating of the bonds reflects D&P's opinion that the Class F-1 bondholders will receive at least $211,000,000 of payments by the class maturity date. The rating does not address either the right of bondholders to receive payments on the bonds in excess of an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of the bonds or whether bondholders will suffer lower than anticipated yields. In addition, the ratings do not address whether the payments on the bonds will take the form of either principal or interest.
 The bonds are secured by collateral consisting of 22 different classes of multiclass REMIC and stripped mortgage-backed securities issued by the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Association (Freddie Mac). The securities, with an aggregate principal balance in excess of $179 million, generally consist of variations of principal only, interest only, and inverse floating rate securities. The bonds were issued pursuant to an indenture and indenture supplement, each dated as of August 31, 1993, between Bear Stearns Secured Investors Trust 1993-4, as issuer, and State Street Bank and Trust, as indenture trustee.
 The analysis for the ratings primarily focused on prepayments of the mortgage pools underlying the REMIC securities and the subsequent effect on bond cash flows.
