Aston Martin shares down again


Despite a highly-anticipated listing on the London Stock Exchange last week, shares in luxury carmaker Aston Martin continue to disappoint.

Shares in Aston Martin were down today by nearly 5 per cent at £16.07. The shares had initially been priced at £19, giving it a market capitalization of £4.3bn.

The company is now trading on the LSE under the ticker ‘AML’.

The British supercar maker is currently owned by Italian and Kuwaiti shareholders, alongside other minority investors. Despite its glamorous association with James Bond films, the company has gone bust seven times in 105 years.
