Abstract. In [uch] (among other results), M. Uchiyama gave necessary and sufficient conditions for contractions to be similar to the unilateral shift $S$ of multiplicity $1$ in terms of norm-estimates of complete analytic families of eigenvectors of their adjoints. In [gam], a cyclic power bounded operator is constructed which has the requested norm-estimates, is a quasiaffine transform of $S$, but is not quasisimilar to $S$. In this paper, a power bounded operator is constructed which has the requested norm-estimates, is quasisimilar to $S$, but is not similar to $S$. The question whether the criterion for contractions to be similar to $S$ can be generalized to polynomially bounded operators remains open. Also, for every cardinal number $2\leq N\leq \infty $, a power bounded operator $T$ is constructed such that $T$ is a quasiaffine transform of $S$ and $\dim \ker T^*=N$. This is impossible for polynomially bounded operators. Moreover, the constructed operators $T$ have the requested norm-estimates of complete analytic families of eigenvectors of~$T^*$.
