Czech Stocks Reverse Gains as Erste Group Drops on Spain Concern

June 18, 2012

The Czech Republic’s equity index reversed earlier gains, led by a drop in Erste Group Bank AG (EBS), as Spanish yields rose to a euro-era record, overshadowing a victory of Greek pro-bailout parties in general elections.

The PX (PX) gauge of 14 companies slid 0.2 percent to 883.40 at 3:23 p.m. in Prague, after earlier increasing as much as 1.1 percent. Austria’s Erste, which has a 17 percent weighting in the Czech benchmark, dropped 2.2 percent to 360 koruna.
