    FILE - In this May 28, 2012 file photo, the Stock Exchange main display is reflected on a Bankia sign in Madrid. Shares of Spain's bailed-out bank Bankia plunged 13 percent on Thursday Dec. 27, 2012 after officials with the nation's bank bailout fund revealed the nationalized institution had a negative value of euro 4.2 billion ($5.6 billion). Bankia was formed in 2010 in a merger of seven unlisted Spanish savings banks whose heavy lending for property hurt them badly after the country's extended real estate boom collapsed in 2008.
