Zidan's Dortmund shares bounce on Bayern win

AP, Monday 28 Feb 2011

Borussia Dortmund fans aren't the only people cheering the Bundesliga leader's 3-1 away win over defending champion Bayern Munich.


Dortmund's shares were up more than 11 percent on the Frankfurt stock exchange early Monday before settling back to a still-hefty 8 percent rise in the afternoon.

The shares were trading at ¤3.02 ($4.15) and are now up 157 percent over the past year.

Dortmund, the only Bundesliga club with a stock market listing, last won the title in 2002 but has emerged as this season's surprise runaway leader.

With 10 rounds remaining, Coach Juergen Klopp's young team has a 12-point lead over second-place Bayer Leverkusen. It is 16 points ahead of Bayern after Saturday's victory.
