SEE stock exchanges gain momentum in 2012, as regional hubs stand out

by Gabriela Tzekova

The stock markets in SEE closed 2012 on a positive note as the majority
of the TOP 100 public companies saw their market value increase and
the blue-chip indices reversed their downward trend. Despite the upturn,
the indices failed to erase the losses accumulated in 2011. Meanwhile,
the overall growth in the combined capitalisation in SEE was mostly
prompted by the good performance of the three leading stock markets in
the region: Zagreb, Bucharest and Ljubljana.
