LLB bearer share
The bearer share of the Liechtensteinische Landesbank is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange. A number of banks in Switzerland and Liechtenstein were scarcely able to profit from the overall very positive performance of the stock market in 2012. Eleven bank shares were among the fifty weakest shares listed on the Swiss Performance Index (SPI). The LLB bearer share price also fell short of expectations.
The LLB bearer share has been listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange under the symbol LLB (security number 3019524) since 1993. In 2012, 2.0 million LLB bearer shares were traded there, which corresponds to 6.5 percent of all shares issued. As at 31 December 2012, the market capitalization of Liechtensteinische Landesbank AG stood at CHF 894.7 million with a total of 30.8 million shares.
Analysts from UBS and the Zürcher Kantonalbank (ZKB) monitored the LLB bearer share in 2012 and regularly published studies and assessments of LLB. In 2012, Bank Vontobel and MainFirst ceased monitoring the LLB bearer share.
On 13 January 2012, Daniele Brupbacher and his research team at UBS upgraded the LLB bearer share from «sell» to «hold». The ZKB analyst Andreas Venditti kept his rating unchanged at «hold» throughout the whole year.
