Sberbank Tumbles Most in Four Weeks as Ruble Drops to Dollar

November 01, 2011

(Updates with closing share price in second paragraph.)

Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- OAO Sberbank, Russia’s biggest lender, slid the most in four weeks as the ruble weakened for a second day against the dollar.

The stock lost 6 percent to 77.11 rubles, the steepest loss since Oct. 4. A weaker ruble encourages Russians to withdraw and convert ruble deposits, Sberbank’s main source of funding.
