An investor in SunTrust Banks, Inc  shares has filed a proposed securities class action lawsuit on behalf of the above stated purchasers of SunTrust Banks, Inc. publicly traded securities  alleging that SunTrust Banks, Inc (“SunTrust”) and certain of its officers and directors violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing between July 22, 2008 and January 21, 2009 false and misleading statements about SunTrust’s financial results and conditions.
The plaintiff alleges among other things, that SunTrust was not as well capitalized as represented, and, notwithstanding the $3.5 billion the Company received on November 17, 2008 from the Troubled Asset Relief Program, SunTrust announced that it would have to raise an additional $1.4 billion in TARP funds just three weeks later. As SunTrust’s true condition slowly came to light in a series of write-downs, reserve increases and capital-raising, SunTrust’s stock price dropped from a high of over $59 per share between July22, 2008 and January 21, 2009  to less than $14 per share, so the lawsuit.

Those who are current long-term investors in SUNTRUST BANKS , have certain options and should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc. at:
