Equity investors are not the only ones who have become more comfortable with taking on risk in the aftermath of the earth-quake, tsunami and nuclear crisis in Japan and anti-government demonstrations in the Middle East.

A number of corporations are once again ramping up debt offerings after many companies abruptly postponed sales last week.

On Monday morning alone, for example, SunTrust Banks said it would sell $1 billion in new senior unsecured debt. It plans to use the proceeds, along with a $1 billion common stock offering, to repurchase its $3.50 billion of fixed rate cumulative preferred stock, Series C and $1.35 billion of fixed rate cumulative preferred stock, Series D issued under TARP, according to Dow Jones.
