UPDATE 1-NORDIC STOCKS - Factors to watch on Jan 9

(Adds Kvaerner, Stockmann)

HELSINKI, Jan 9 (Reuters) - The following stocks may be affected by newspaper reports and other factors on Wednesday:


Norway’s DNB bank will book a 235 million crown ($41.90 million) accounting gain on the mark-to-market adjustment of its basis swaps in the fourth quarter and a 1.69 billion crown loss for the full year 2012, it said on Wednesday.

Basis swaps, derivative contracts related to long-term funding, have an overall zero impact over the lifetime of the product, so any gain or loss is eventually offset, the bank said.
