BBVA, for its part, is at the gates, with a drop of 19% from the peak it touched on January 10, when it closed at around 5.79 euros.

Among these 10 largest values ​​by market capitalization of the national selective, Cellnex is the one that loses the most from its annual sky, with a decrease of more than 35%, and is also among the most bearish of 2022 in the index.

Amadeus also fell by 20% in this interval, since the travel industry, despite the good expectations expected for this year, have been affected by the different setbacks of the year.
