Worst International Stock

Bankia SA

-80%

The biggest target for the European Union's bailout fund for Spanish banks, Bankia SA (BKIA:SM), forecasts it will lose $25 billion in 2012. The bank, formed last year from the merger of seven regional savings banks damaged by Spain's real estate downturn, is in the midst of cutting more than a quarter of its workforce.

Universe and criteria: the MSCI AC World Index, which includes 2,443 stocks from both developed and emerging markets.
