February 21, 2012

Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The Czech Republic’s PX stock index slid 0.2 percent to 1,016 at the close in Prague.

The following were among the most active equities in the Czech market today. Stock symbols follow company names.

Vienna Insurance Group AG (VIG CP) fell for a second day, sliding 1.5 percent to 849 koruna. Erste Group Bank AG (RBAG CP) dropped 0.7 percent to 475 koruna.

European shares fell from the highest in six months, led by financial companies on speculation a Greek bailout deal will not solve the nation’s debt crisis.

New World Resources Plc (NWR CP), the biggest Czech coking- coal producer, lost 1.6 percent to 154.24 koruna, adding to a 1.4 percent drop yesterday. Europe’s benchmark coal derivatives slid 0.4 percent to $113.5 a metric ton in the Netherlands.
