LLB bearer share
The bearer share of the Liechtensteinische Landesbank is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange. In 2011, banking shares came under particular pressure. The debt crisis of the euro countries, exchange rate turbulence and the general decline in confidence in financial institutions led to a fall in share prices in Europe. The LLB bearer share was not able to escape this trend and lost 43.2 percent.
The LLB bearer share is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange under the symbol LLB (security number 3019524). In 2011, 2.05 million LLB bearer shares were traded there, which corresponds to 6.7 percent of all shares issued. As at 31 December 2011, the market capitalization of Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG stood at CHF 1.3 billion with a total of 30.8 million shares.
In 2011, the LLB bearer share was monitored by analysts from the following banks, who regularly published studies and assessments of LLB: Bank Vontobel, MainFirst, UBS and the Zürcher Kantonalbank.
Over the course of 2011, one analyst rated the LLB bearer share from «hold» to «sell». Three analysts kept their rating unchanged at «hold» throughout the whole year.
