Vopak Drops Most in a Month on UBS Sell Rating: Amsterdam MoverFred Pals
Royal Vopak NV, the world’s biggest chemical and oil storage company, dropped the most in a month in Amsterdam as UBS AG initiated coverage with a “sell” rating.
Vopak dropped as much as 3.5 percent to 49.24 euros, the biggest drop since Dec. 10. It was at 49.285 euros by 10:18 a.m. local time, valuing Vopak at 6.3 billion euros ($8.4 billion).

The storage company, based in Rotterdam, operates 84 terminals in 31 countries with a combined capacity of more than 29 million cubic meters.
