Why BNP Paribas (BNPQY) Stock Is Down Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of BNP Paribas (BNPQY) are down -1.20% to $32.12 after it was reported that Chairman Baudouin Prot may leave in the next few months and be succeeded by Jean Lemierre, a senior adviser at the French bank, according to Le Journal du Dimanche, Bloomberg reports.
