    It is all very nice, being the the largest private bank . But being the largest does not mean the best. UBS stock has been doing very poorly for several years. They only rose 100% from being dirt cheap at aroung 8 Swiss Francs. Their latest results were also
    far from being exciting. In comparison with other institutes from the banking sector they still have a big gap from the top at around 80 francs.
