Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
First of all on form 8938 you are reporting foreign financial account - not foreign assets.
Thus if your 913 shares of LYB stock are held with the US broker - nothing you need to report.
If however you are holding shares in the foreign brokerage account - then such account is reportable.
In additional - you are required to file the form 8939 only if your total value in foreign financial accounts is above $50,000.
If that is only your foreign account - and the value is below $50,000 - no need to file form 8939.
So far based on information provided - you are not required to file form 8939.
Let me know if you need any help.
